I have a Springfield milspec, and I don't like the feel of the arched mainspring housing.
What small parts do I need to order from Brownells for the replacement?
Anyone want to trade a good quality flat MSHs for my arched Springfield (with lock)?

Found the answer.
Replacing the ILS system is simple. You'll need a housing, standard spring... no lighter than 23#...a standard mainspring cap, and the retaining pin that fits in the small hole at the top right of the housing. Everything else is straightforward.

Lessee, my Milspec is stainless, so I used the stainless msh #555-101-003. Also the mainspring cap pin s/s #965-011-166, and the mainspring cap s/s #965-011-162. Double check those numbers. :)
