I do buy most of my gun parts from VTI, but, I figure if Traditions will send me a spring for free, I will give it a try.
Plus I enjoy gunsmithing these old guns with my carpentry tools.
You should what I can do with a Sawzall and a metal cutting blade.
Or, maybe you shouldn't.
Thanks for that original post, you know a lot more about cap and ball revolvers than I do.
