    Does anybody know where I can find some springs for a old crescent double barrel shotgun? I'm not too sure of the year or model but here is what it looks like.

    The springs are for the mechanisms for the hammers. Also, does anybody know where I can find a replacement for the ring that attaches the forestock to the reciever. I have one somewhere but cannot find it.
    Thank you

    IIRC, depending on the age, there were at least two different springs- a flat and a coil. Brownells usually has generic springs that can be cut, shaped, bent, etc, and Wolff IS springs. Suggestion would be to find a TRUE gunsmith- making springs is Gunsmith 101.

    It'll be a simple job for your gunsmith to make and/or fit springs for it.
