    Fortunately, I purchased some original 2nd gen screws a couple months ago and that purchase included a few of the plastic washers.

    If you know which type of plastic they are made of (Mylar or Delrin?), you can obtain a sheet of the same thickness from a plastics supply shop. Heck, many packaging materials are made of the same stuff if you examine them. Then find a piece of steel automotive brake or fuel line the same diameter, cut it square with a tubing cutter and use a cartridge case mouth deburring tool to sharpen the edges, in and out. You can then use a small ball peen and a block of wood to make your own. A leather punch (Harbor Freight sells them) will open the hole for the screw. When you live in the Outback, you have to get creative.

    The action needed a lot of attention. The trigger has about a foot of creep. The trigger sear (top) did not enter the half cock notch or the safety notch. The hand slot in the frame is about the texture of cast iron. None of the inside parts had any sign of being polished.

    O rings would be way too thick, and finding some as small as needed might be difficult.

    Bibbyman's idea of a single coil of a small spring is a great idea and a small, fine wire spring should be easy to find.

    I'm a frequent shopper at the local Ace Hardware store in town. Besides all kinds of fasteners, they have an assortment of gun screws. Just ain't made into town in a couple of days.
