Browning 71

I'm looking for Browning model 71 parts: hammer/mainspring strut
Mainspring
Mainspring abutment
Please contact me if you have these parts for sale or have a lead as to where I may find them.
Thank you,
John

Not trying to be a wise guy, but did you try Browning Arms?

I am assuming you mean the Browning edition of the Winchester 71 rifle in 348 Winchester. Numrich shows them as being in stock.

Numrich shows parts for the Winchester in stock. Not sure that they will interchange with the Browning parts. They were made by B.C. Miroku, if I recall, and a Browning 1892 copy I had would not accept Winchester parts either. They were similar, but not close enough to interchange.

Thanks for the replies. I might get the Winchester parts and see if I can modify then to work if I can't find the Browning parts.

Maybe Midwest gun supply? I think they bought out Browning's inventory of their discontinued guns.

Winchester still catalogs the similar 1886, which might use the same parts. They also had a 2011 Shot Show Special run of Miroku made Model 71s.
