I have this old shotgun that the spring for the break open lever spring has broken. I am having trouble finding the part so I was thinking of finding some steel rod and bending my own. It also appears to be pressed in but I am not sure. I do not see any signs of welding that may hold it in. My questions are will bending my own rod work and any ideas on how to remove the broken piece? Any help would be appreciated. Hopefully the pics show up I attached.
