Browning hammer springs are fairly easy to remove, but does anyone know
of a easy way to get them back on?

No easy way I know of but the good news is that it doesn't have to be done very often. I position the spring/strut and grasping the end of the strut I compress the spring with the objective of pushing the strut back into the hole. I use a side cutting pliers for grasping the strut.

Dull the cutting surfaces of a small pair of side cutters, and use both hands to guide the spring guide into the boss on the receiver, and the nose into the hammer.

Hot tip! Use the Wolff Extra Power spring for the right (lower) hammer.

I cut a groove in one side of a pair of slip joint pliers, not channellock type, just the ordinary two position type mechanics pliers, and I think I cut a notch in the other end. I can hold the strut in the notched end and compress the spring with the grooved end. Works very well.

Brownell's sells a mainspring tool especially made to do this, however a friend at the club the other night said that he has used a small cocktail fork, the two pronged ones for eating shrimp, and that has worked well for him.
