    Default Traditions main spring replacment

    Well, I just happen to find a gun "store" where the owner dug around the house for a Pennsylvania Flintlock rifle. It was broken so he sold it to me for 145.00. Its in good condition except for the mainspring. Wood, brass and everything else is great.

    So, I go to Shydas, they had the mainspring in stock. I get it home take the thing apart and think how the hell am I going to compress this spring?

    Well, long story short I made an appt. with the smithy for tomorrow. Anyone have an idea as to how much this will cost?

    thanks

    You're missing this tool -- Mainspring compressor or vise. Vee or leaf spring replacement is common, sometimes I pull them for detail cleaning.

    Available online.

    Well, I got it fixed today and at the grand total of 0 dollars...Thanks..Enk's GunBarn!! I bought the extras that I needed such as FFFFG and a pan charger. I haven't done anymore than to flash the pan a few times. Tomorrow I will head out to the range and see what she can do.
