Hi,

Butler Derringers are copies of the Colt and the springs should work. You may need to modify them some for a good fit.

If these do not look like what you have in your gun the only option is to have a gunsmith make them for you. He will need the gun and broken springs to make new ones. Any good gunsmith can make them for you.
