    That was what I was going to suggest. On the older guns, it is often just not worth trying to get original parts. Sometimes the part is so complex that the effort is necessary, especially if you have nothing to copy, but many times you can make the part while you are trying to find it in the catalogs. Heck, I have made parts in less time that it would have taken to fill out an order blank to Numrich.

    Not butt kissing or anything, but...

    That is pretty neat that y'all can do that. Glad to know that there are still some folks out there who can perform the impossible for the ungrateful.

    "How much for that spring? You gotta be kidding me! Heck, if I'd known that I'd have taken one outta my pen and had 'er workin' good as when my gran'pappy broke it!" :cuss:

    MG: "It's a flat spring" :rolleyes:
