Any chance anyone knows what the piano wire size would be for the lightest spring that would work, would be? I can order one but I want very soft.

Thanks

And it's very light.  I don't even notice it's there.

Don't understand how much benefit you get by going even lighter.  At some point, it will become unreliable on the reset to "blocking the trigger" after a firing cycle.

 

I'm pretty sure that I can't feel any resistance from the commercial springs I've used when running at speed.

 

good luck, GJ

Grampies, 

I probably have one that you could have if you want it. I have some from online outpost and I have some Boogie.

When Bill English retired a few years ago, he sold a lot of his The Smith Shop stock to Online Outpost. It is Bill's original design for the lever safety of the 1873 that they are selling today.

 

I see no need to go any lighter.
