Re: Proper protocol for replacing a broken mainspring.

Being fortunate enough to live close to Len, I have seen firsthand some of these springs and the resulting debris. To take a gun apart and not do a complete clean-out, in my mind, is being negligent and could very well lead to some nasty problems. Len has had to solve and repair many of those nasty problems as well.

Thanks for the Post Len. For me anyway, when Len talks about gun maintenance and repair, I listen.

I'll second that whole-heartedly!

I for one have learned (the proper way of doing things) so much from Len's informative posts on various topics that although I don't remotely posses the same skills as him, I would like to think that because of his attention to detail I have a much better mindset now when working on my guns and strive to be as "professional" and thorough as I can.

This is good to see - I've not had to deal with a broken spring yet, but I'm curious Len - what 'cleaning agent' do you employ? Sounds like a liquid - acetone perhaps?
