Shooting doubles at Redlands last Saturday and suddenly my trigger refused to operate. Took it home and sure enough a little $6 sear spring broke a leg off and stopped me dead in my tracks. The gun will not re-set when a sear spring breaks. It was quite frustrating to be half way through the round and have one break. You don't swap out sear springs in five minutes even if I had a spare one. I could have swapped out the trigger (if I had one) and finished the round. That's why I'm looking for one.
Do you mean the helical spring that returns the trigger to the forward position after each shot (the trigger return spring)??
That's the one I was talking about - with the right drift pin it takes about two minute to change one out.
I keep spares with me in my shooting bag (which admittedly I often leave in the truck when I shoot).
Emergency fix is to switch barrels - make whichever one has the broken spring the second barrel to fire and you can shoot doubles.
NOTE - I have been calling it a trigger re-set spring - turns out it is the sear re-set spring - my apologies... This is the small helical spring that broke for Kevin (and I suspect what broke for the friend of TBarber as well).
This is the Sear Spring that broke. It took me a while to find it, because I didn't know what had broken. But I suspect I could possibly replace it in 5 minutes if I had a spare sitting in my gun case. Probably easier to swap out the trigger if I had a spare one.
