Have you beat, decided to change springs in my colt anaconda. The insides launched when the side plate came off. Couldn’t find any pics or diagrams on how it was supposed to go back together. I’d try it about once a month. Finally figured out the problem was the one piece, a spring, that stayed in place and didn’t launch. No idea how it ever worked.
Here ya go! Ever since I got this finding parts on the floor is simple. On sale at your local Lowe’s.
Telescopic handle allows searches without getting on the floor and the head swivels.
It’s also highly useful when recovering cheap shotshells at the trap range after a shooting session.
AA hulls don’t pick us as easily as other brands though.
I had the same thing happen with a spring on a Beretta 92. At the time, the only way I could find to get a replacement in a timely manner was to order a set of Wolff springs for it. Not five minutes after the order had been processed I found that damn spring. I almost threw it out the door on principle, but I ended up putting it back in the gun just sos it'd work if I needed it...
