    Have I told you lately how very, very, very helpful you are Trucks?

    Also, and I realize how weird this is, a piece of foam rubber under the sear is working! Can't see myself pulling the trigger on a live round with the foam rubber there, but it is interesting.

    Okay, it's fixed. First of all, interesting note; after putting the foam under the sear, I dry fired the gun hundreds of times since post 21 above, so over 9 days. Flawless. Not one hiccup. Makes you think, eh?

    Anyway, on to the more permanent solution. I got some AR-15 detent springs, and here's the process I followed. First, the sear spring from my non-View next to an AR-15 disassembly pin detent spring.

    The AR-15 spring is obviously wound a bit tighter, so step one was to stretch it a bit. I used a pair of small, retired Swiss Army knife blades to stretch the spring.

    Then I took some precise wire cutters and clipped it to the same length as the stock spring.

    Now, the AR-15 spring is a bit heavier gauge wire. But the outside diameter is a very close match to the OD of the original spring, so it stays in place in the round depressions in the sear and hammer. And yes, I got both springs/sears/hammers reassembled without losing another spring.

    I'd say my AR-sourced spring applies a bit more force than the stock spring, but I've done a few hundred test fires (with dummy rounds) with zero malfunctions. It works. And I put a Wolff mainspring in, so those trigger pulls didn't even give me arm cramps. It is now the revolver I knew it could be.
