Stoeger Coach Gun Hammer Springs - Replacement


Red Oak

Recommended Posts

Is anyone aware of a source for replacement Stoeger coach gun hammer springs?  I'd like to go with lighter hammer springs to reduce the effort needed to cock the hammers on opening.  I've looked around but to no avail.  Numrich has used factory springs but I was hoping for something more adapted to cowboy shooting.  I've polished all the ususal areas, but hoping to get it a little better.

Thank you

Get a pair of those used factory springs, then grind a LITTLE metal off the outside of the coils, all along the length of the coil. Thin the coiled wire down, removing no more than 10% of original thickness.  Leave the spring length alone.   Then polish so no grinding marks remain as stress risers (concentration points).   That should reduce the strength of the spring by 25% without causing premature failure.   Seen several gunsmiths use that trick on coil springs, as well as doing it myself.

 

good luck, GJ
