The odds are not high that you will find a new replacement spring; but I would start my making
this same post to the Parker Gun Collectors Association forum . If they can't suggest a source,
Posted in thread: Low-end $ double-barrels? on 05-15-2008 at 04:37 AM
Unless you can find a good used double gun with a cut stock, get the boy something like an 870

On the contrary UnBound, those guys with fancy engraved shotguns featuring stunning walnut

Production records for the Syracuse Arms Company no longer exist, so there is no way to provide
an exact shipping date on your gun. From personal research I can tell you the following:
