I have a Winchester 1894 ser# 51434 built in 1896(that is what the owner said) in the shop that needs a trigger stop spring.
I have worked on a few of these but have not run into a spring that looks like this.
It is 2 piece the top spring is for the trigger stop and the bottom one is for the sear.
The bottom one is broke and all that I can find are the one piece springs.
Will they work(the one piece) and should it be a pre or post model that will work.
Here are pics. to help understand what I am asking.
Thanks in advance.
If originality is not a requirement, wire springs have been made to sub for both springs with a single wire spring. Winchester originally called the later single piece spring a "sear and safety catch" spring, and that is what it is called by some parts suppliers.
