    Same as me. All I need to make mine correct is a 7 rib mainspring housing and a right Keyes grip.

    Stripped it down completely and cleaned it real good. Can tell that hadn't been done for a lonnng time. Question about the main spring. Is it supposed to be so stiff and difficult to get the housing back into place? I felt like it was a chore to do. I had to really tap the pin to set it back into place.
