Rifle is 14 years old.

Magazine spring was getting a bit weak so I replaced it with a new stainless steel spring.   grin

Before I rode over to shoot at Coal Car Kid's match a few months back I dropped in a short stroke kit.   smile

Between the magazine spring and the short stroke now the lever requires considerable more effort to lever the action.

Then I bummed up my knuckle.   The knuckle that rides on the lever.  A bit painful.   consored

The Hammer main spring is the 93 and 2/3rds pounds factory original.  Any Cowpokes have a recommendation on a lighten but reliable replacement main spring?

And no it ain't a option for me to Dremel the main spring into an hourglass.

I riding up to Buchanan, MI this weekend to shoot with Paul Puma's bunch.  I'd like to give those  Northerner's a run for their money!   laugh


May God grant me the eye of the eagle on his prey, the stealth of the tiger on the hunt and the balls of an Army Helicopter pilot!
