Hi,

A good Gunsmith can make the springs for you, but will need the gun shipped to them. What state are you in? I may know someone close to you. It's possible you will need to ship it. Do you know what year it was made? What is the model and serial number.

If you have pictures of the gun please post them and I will do my best to help you. You can also text or email pictures if you are not able to upload them. Let me know if you need a text number or email address.

Hi,

Is your pistol a Model 1, a small spur trigger revolver? If you want to ship it to PA it can be repaired and on the way back to you in about a week.
