This is a newly designed and developed top lever spring especially for those officiadoes in the Classic Cowboy category. The spring is designed merely to replace the stiff, and most times unevenly ground, existing cast spring.
Because there are so many different pressures, tolerances and dimensions between production runs and even individual shotguns, this is not totally a drop-in replacement. Although we have watched adequate gun repairmen correctly install the spring, and if you have a little experience with working on them go for it, but we encourage you to contact your local smith or tuner. Incidentally, during our first tries at installing the new spring we “Twanged” two across the shop
The only critical issue while installing the spring is to be certain that the “LONG” leg of the spring MUST be placed into the detent in the FRAME of the block, then obviously, the short leg attaches into the lever drum detent.
