    SA tool

    Maybe this has been addressed before or in a different way, but this little chunk of drilled brass works
    great for adjusting coil hand spring tension in a number of different SA guns.IMG_6167.JPG

    Interesting, but I don't see how it works.

    Holds tension on the coil type hand spring when experimenting with lighter springs. I realize there is a bore plug associated
    with some of these, but I have never been able to hold them in place under spring tension. I was amazed at how far a spring
    could travel when it gets away from you.

    Terry. That’s the spring and plug for the Uberti hand. Some don’t have a flat spring on the hand and rely on tension of a through-frame capped spring. And yes those buggers disappear fast!

    Bill, I own a couple AWA's and Uberti's with that coiled handspring. I just did not see the reason for compressing it while the back-strap was off.
    If the issue is having that handspring in place while trying to adjust the mainspring, I can understand that.

    What it really helps me to do is trying several lighter weight hand springs without installing the back strap
    to hold them in place. Tried holding them in place with my thumb, but destroying a steel ball with a rubber
    hammer come to mind. Also, as you mentioned, it gives you a more accurate feel for the main spring working
    with everything else.

    I hate when things go "ping" and aren't seen again!

    I normally find those flying parts laying in plain sight...after buying a replacement.
