Not. It's just that I'd like the option. The new spring is 17lbs and no one makes different weight springs for it yet. The non-lock springs come in weights from 17-23lbs, maybe more. Maybe the aftermarket will catch up some day.the fatman":1a27hw3p said:And if so how dreadful is this.

A big :idea:GOLD:idea: star! :lol:the fatman":187t9262 said:edlmann hey neighbor I think sam and friends want a stronger spring for a faster lock time. If I have learned correctly from my mentors a heavier spring brings the hammer down more quickly allowing not only more reliable primer ignition but less time for the barrel to drift off target. If I have this right maybe I'll get a star for this weeks lesson.
