Several years ago, I took a 19th century revolver with a broken mainspring in to a local gunsmith. He said "mainsprings are easy," so I let him work on it. After several tries, it was still not right. On-line, I found a smith who worked on really old revolvers, and he was able to kinda, sorta fix it. Anyway, I just want to tell you that mainsprings for 19th century revolvers are not an easy fix.
