Default Leaf Spring To Coil Spring Conversion

Those of you shooting old time top break rifles and shotguns might find interest in this article I wrote.

Yesterday while shooting trap (I was 21 of 22) my top lever leaf spring broke. UGH!

I've tried to find a replacement from Wisner and Robert Storms in AZ to no luck...

So I decided to convert it to coil spring.


Wrote an article with pictures on my web site.

Hope you like it!

Interesting but... what I would like to know is how to convert the leaf spring in a rolling block rifle to coil spring.
