    A purely theoretical question about sear springs

    So I got a new revolver today. Taurus 651. Very nice. Shrouded but thumb cockable hammer, stainless, frame looks beefy for a snub, love the boot grip.

    yadda yadda yadda, I need a sear spring.

    Numrich says out of stock. Is calling the mother ship my only option? Try a S&W sear spring? See if sufficient yelling will cause the spring to magically reappear from wherever it sprang to?

    Open to suggestions, and not chewing nails in the meantime at all. Really.

    Oh......so it was a Jesus spring, then. If it were me, I'd find something really expensive that I have, that hitting a sear spring would totally ruin and drag it around the floor 'til I found the spring......not likely to take long.

    Walking barefoot could find it, too, but that might be against the Geneva Convention.

    Well, you know the spring is there, so look harder. When you give up, if it isn’t cost prohibitive, try the S&W spring.

    You might have some pulse code overmodulation with that setup. I'd tweak the framisters to optimize the graviton emitter. But I digress. What was the question? Something about Sears? Didn't they close up shop some years ago? <sorry GH, I'll stop now.>

    Seems like every time I lose something......I find it within 24 hours after buying a new one.

    Kinda like you never need that thing you've held on to for years until two weeks after you sell it.

    With me, it's usually just days. The last time, it was hydraulic plow pumps. I had five used ones in various condition but all still good. Nobody uses 'em anymore and you can't fit them on anything made in the last 25 years or so anyway......so I scrapped 'em. Two days later, a guy brought in a '78 Dodge Power Wagon with a hydraulic plow and the pump had rusted through.......it was identical to the ones I'd just tossed. I couldn't find another one anywhere except ebay and those looked like someone had just dug 'em up outa' the ground, rusted about as bad as the one he had. I ended up using the power steering pump I'd saved from my old '86 Camaro, which worked great but entailed a lot of redesign and manufacturing to make everything fit and line up. A couple days earlier, it would've just been about a half-hour job to swap the pump.
