Other than buying the "bulk" box at a Princess Auto or the like- where is a good source for springs?

Not mainsprings for break-barrels, but smaller springs for use inside Co2 valves, hammers, etc?

The PA boxes are OK for things like hammer and trigger springs, but what about larger/stronger units like Co2 valve springs?

I located a smaller Spring manufacturer from my local yellow pages. They had an "over-run" room with boxes and crates of samples and overruns available at reasonable prices.
The other week I was at a local Auto Parts supplier (Piston Ring) and I noticed thay had a multitude of blister packs of compression and expansion springs available for retail sale; $3-$6/pack 2-4 springs per package of the smaller type springs.
The spring stock I purchased from the Spring Manufacturer were in 12-15" lengths, and I was able to custom cut the lengths I required. I bought 3 different types of samples and now have enough stock to modify 8-10 valves, hammers and triggers. Cost me about $12.00cdn.
I'd imagine you should be able to find similar sources locally.
Good Luck!
