Hi, my beloved and very smooth Officer's Model Target heavy barrel .38 pops about 4/6 primers in DA mode... what's a good source for a new hammer spring?

Over a year ago I bought one from GP/Numrich, so they had them then, and fairly cheaply. It worked fine. I used what was sold by them as a Python spring, but it fit and worked in my .357 OK, and would likely also work in any OP or Army Special, as they all look to be the same spring. What might also work is bending one of the limbs outward from the middle (not at the end with the sharp bend). I did that once, and it worked for quite awhile, but finally returned to having misfires. Re-hardening the spring would probably prevent that.

As I recall, Jack First manufacture an exact replica of the Colt spring. Most spring you find these days will be replicas due to the supply of genuine Colt parts drying up:

Jack First Gunshop - First in Gun Parts - Rapid City, South Dakota
Gotta call.

Gun Parts have only replicas in stock:

SUPER Mainspring, Reproduction Gun Parts | 1365010 | Numrich Gun Parts

Colt Parts have them listed, no idea if they're replicas or originals.

Colt Python Double Action Revolver
Thank you!
