    Early 1900's h&r victor (large frame?) .32 cal revolver. Serious cleaning and spring replacement. Just thought it was a cool gun. Kinda an h&r fan anyway as they were local.

    Anyone know where I can get a mainspring for this thing? Numrich is sold out. They have the trigger spring which was snapped in half. Lol

    Try Jack First in Rapid City, S.D.

    If you can't find one, a good gunsmith should be able to make one.

    I happened to get a big bunch of S&W K-frame main springs once. I fixed alot of H&R, Iver Johnson, etc revolvers using those springs(cut down to fit).

    That's definitely a thought. Once I have everything reblued and polished up I'll consider that option if I have to replace it. I'm thinking cleaning and polishing it up might be enough to get it functioning.

    Update:
    The trigger spring finally came in today and surprise,surprise its the wrong one. Apparently this is a large frame model,too bad the springs for it aren't available. So I took a piece of tool steel and made a shim to keep the spring in place. Extra hour of work but the gun is back together and functions flawlessly. My buddy was so happy he gave me a gift. Wish I got payed for everything like this.
