    Do you know of anyone who might be stocking the barrel lock and barrel lock spring?

    I did a full detail strip on mine yesterday, and lip on the barrel lock that holds the lock spring in place apparently sheared off at some point in the distant past (the break was pretty badly carboned over along with everything else in the gun). When I pulled the trigger assembly, the spring fell out (I played hell trying to figure out what it was!), but the broken off lip is long gone.

    I have it reassembled, and from what I can tell as long as the trigger assembly is in place the spring won't pop out, but I want to make sure that if I need it I have another lock and spring on hand.

    Also, is it my imagination, or is the design of the trigger such that if the rear trigger hook breaks off the gun will go automatic.

    Less than a week and Mike has disabled his gun already. Gee Mike, what took you so long? ;) I'm generally faster than that!

    Don't think it's disabled, Gary.

    The barrel lock is still working as far as I've been able to determine just by cycling it by hand.

    If it is disabled, then it came that way.

    But given the fact that it took me a few minutes of fumbling around until I even figured out that the retaining lip was broken because it was so carboned up, it obviously was working for the last person who fired it.

    Thanks for the link to Popperts.

    But WOW!

    They charge over double what Gun Parts charges for the same item.

    Of course, GPC is out of barrel locks...

    But, who knows. I may not even need it.

    Yup, there's a difference in price.

    But I've had a lot better luck with parts being in stock at Popperts than at Gun Parts Corp. Go figure, no easy parts searches when I'm rebuilding a Siamese Mauser or Dutch Steyr-Mannlicher. :D

    Just don't break that darned wooden bolt return spring plug pin, I could only imagine how much that would sell for!

    :neener:

    "Just don't break that darned wooden bolt return spring plug pin, I could only imagine how much that would sell for!"

    That I see being fairly easy to replicate with a chunk of hardwood dowel and a small lathe, and not beyond the capabilities of a moderately competent individual.

    Mike, Mike, Mike...

    I was being facetious, you know...

    Myself, I'd just have to take a big blank of some exotic fruitwood and lathe-turn it down to the diameter of that pin. ;)
