The mainsprings of Pre Wars are different from Postwars. Postwars have a dark light spring that has a main fold in the tip of the V but also has a smaller fold on the upper portion of the V as it fits in the gun causing greater strength in the V. All of this was done by machine. The PreWar, as I was told today, was hand folded once and bent by hand just right to fit into the gun.
My PreWar has a lighter trigger pull than the PostWar. the Smith of C & S told me that this was in part why the trigger pull was lighter. He also said that it had had some work done on it.

I was wondering, if I took some pointed nosed plyers and worked out that extra fold in the V in my Postwar would that lighten the trigger pull?
