Warner Arms Hammerless Snubbie

Does anyone know where I might find a drawing or schematic for the Warner arms 38S&W hammerless snubby. I am having problems putting the Main spring back in the right place

My memory is not what it once was, but IIRC that revolver uses the flat mainspring common to revolvers of that era. If so, it is a sort of shallow U with the tip of the longer part fitting into a notch in the bottom of the hammer and the shorter end going into a notch in the bottom of the grip.

Installing the mainspring is just a matter of bending it to fit both ends where they need to go.

If that is not correct, please post a picture of the gun with the grips off and the spring you are trying to install and maybe we can help.

If it has a flat mainspring, it helps to bend it around something like a dowel that's put between the front of the grip frame and the spring.
