I need a lighter spring for a custom gun I am building. I do not want to cut the spring I would like to find a replacement part the same size except for the wire diameter.

Does anyone have a part number or source for lighter 22XX hammer springs.

If I am remembering right the dimensions of a stock 22xx hammer spring is ummm.....wire size is roughly .030", length is about 2" and OD is about .281-7". Hope this helps. A quick search on the MC website found this to being somewhat close to what you are looking for.http://www.mcmaster.com/#compression-an ... gs/=8k6501

most real hardware stores carry a spring assortment. I am not talking about home depot or sears but a real hardware store. ace, truevalue etc., the old fashioned stores. just take a caliper or mike in with you.

Got mine at ACE Hardware. Took the original with me and picked out one I thought would do the job plus a couple different ones. They are cheep.

The closest real hardware is 30 miles so I guess I will bite the bullet and go.

a 'farm and ranch' store or some such nearby? Our CAL Ranch store also has a good selection.

it is the silhouette striker spring. The springs I received were blue in color to differentiate them from the stock 22XX striker spring.

I finally decided to order a 2300S spring in the future. For now I have installed one of my dual cocking hammer's and it solved the problem quite well. Low power lots of shots.
