HELP!

I have a Richard Marhoff & Sohns drilling and I need the three small leaf springs that operate the internal hammers. One is broken, one cracked and one is still good but I figure I'll have it replaced anyway if possible. The gun is with the gunsmith now (who, fortunately, is knowledgable about combo guns) and he is searching for suitable springs among his sources. He has asked me to check any internet sources I may have so I'm checking with you all here at TFL. I've sent an email to New England Custom Guns and am awaiting a reply. I've also posted on the German Gun Collectors site and the Double Gun site.
Any ideas or help with sources would be greatly appreciated. Post here or email me at geobruner@aol.com.
Thanks,
George

Apparently Marhoff was in business after WWII and sold drillings to American servicemen. I can't find anything else on the company so it may be out of business.

In any case, I strongly suspect those springs will have to be made, but the cost should be acceptable for a high quality drilling.

Thanks for the reply Jim. I misspelled the maker name - it's Marholt. I got an email from New England Custom Guns and they said to send them one of the springs and they may be able to match it or order one from Germany or Austria. I gotta feeling this ain't gonna be cheap.
Thanks again for the reply.
