I pulled the hammer/main spring out of a Remington Model 17 this morning because I was getting weak primer hits. Well, as I was putting it back (after stretching it out a bit), it went flying somewhere in the shop. The pin and end cap I have recovered. I think one from an Ithaca 37 might work but I'm not sure. Any thoughts would be most appreciated. thanks, Gil

There are usually a few model 17 parts on eBay. I think Ithaca went to great effort to see none of their model 37 parts could be used in a model 17, telling us that product liability lawyers aren’t a recent invention.
Numrich? Or, get down on your knees with the disc drive magnet out of a CD or DVD player, and start looking.

Best,
Ted

Might pay to contact him to see if he has just the spring. I only paid $50 for my model 17, but, it was 43 years ago.

Ted: I was on my knees, but for a different reason. I went to the hardware store hoping to find something close. I did but it wasn't close enough. So I decided to clean up that part of the shop. About the time I was finishing up that part of the cleanup, ie, the last pile of dust, grime and other stuff maybe an hour later-there it was, the missing spring. Thanks so much for your input; it kept me going. Now let's see if I can get it in its niche this time...Gil

Gil,
Has happened to me perhaps 10,000 times. The bad news is, it isn’t getting any easier or less frequent. The good news, is, I have a son with eyes that are better than 20/20, who lives here, and has to work off some of the grocery bill. Or, so I tell him.

He has found a bunch of parts for me of late.

Good luck with the repair.

Best,
Ted

Got 'er done this morning. It was amazing how much rust and grime was in the channel the mainspring and follower reside in-- and still functioning even some of the time. So I spent some time cleaning, polishing and finally lubricating the parts. Now it works fine, at least in the shop although I suspect the primer hits are light so I may need to make a new firing pin.

A trick taught to me long ago at finding small parts on the floor is not to look down, but to lay down on the floor with eyeball close to the floor and look across the floor. It works better if your floor isn't as cluttered as mine. wink Gil

What is wrong frAnk? Upset because Gil called you out for being the no class individual that you are? Shameful your post regarding Stan and his Church. Then again, you have shown us time and again you have no shame.

The parts can fall and bounce in some strange places! I start with a prayer and usually wind up with a strong magnet. Bobby
