Desperately looking for Dan Wesson hammer spring!
I have 5 of those guns and only one hammer spring not broken...
ASG is not answering my calls.

Thanks

Can you take a picture of the spring? There are sources outside the airgun world for springs of many variations.

Hey Canadianguy

I think there's just one generation for Dan Wesson 715.
I've used them a lot, i know but isn't why we buy those?!

Your Right! I had the old 6" before, know it's all good. I just bought the the 715 4" pellet and was just curious I came across your post.

I emailed ASG today and asked if you can order parts like longer barrel from the exploded diagram. Probably never hear from them after I thought you could only use a 6" BB outer barrel because it's chrome, not dark chrome pellet.

Really! I would take 2 or 3 if you were able to put a order through. Hard to make?

What about airsoft version, same hammer spring?

I just turn my own springs at the right measurements using piano wire.

Then re-heat treat them to hold there form.

I can always make you some but would need some specific sizes first.

If your interested PM for prices.

Chris.

i guess this is the hammer spring out of the DW 715. I wonder if he could measure it?

i found and signed up to this forum talk on the DW's, some interesting things these guys like to do as far as modding.

https://www.airgunforum.co.uk/community ... ew.284641/

Maybe everyone know's about this UK site already.
