    Mainspring for Dixie 1863

    Any ideas on replacement springs for the Miroku 1863 Springfield? The internals look similar to originals but the placement of the spring retaining pin is different.
    Mine is fine but I?d like to pick up a spare just in case.
    Thanks, Brian

    FWIW I have always been told that an original lock will fit a Miroku . My Grandson has a Trenton in his.

    Thanks for the reply. I do have an original ?63 lock plate and have tried the fit before. It?s not a drop in but could fit if a little bit work was done. I ordered a Navy Arms Springfield spring from eBay, so hopefully that will work. I think the other option would be to try a ?55 spring or re drill the spring pin hole and fit a mainspring that?s made for an original Springfield.
