Bisley mainsprings

Does anyone know if anyone markets a lightened mainspring for Bisleys? I only use mine for target but my old, arthritic thumbs complain. Lots of options for standard single action modifications but can't seem to locate upgraded hammer springs for my Bisley .45.

you could try VTI uberti parts, dont know if their springs will fit yours. hand hone it down with a large good sharpening stone, i did that once with a too heavy 1875 remingington. took three days.

Bench grinder is a lot faster, you just have to stop frequently to let it cool down. You take out some of the width and thin it out.
