Model 8 .30 , 1910

Picked up a well kept all original model 8 in 30 cal. Serial no. is from 1910.
I worked on a 25 for a friend a few years ago and always wanted one myself. Now I just have to load up some ammo to shoot.

Marlin Model 50 22 autoloader

25-35 buffer spring

I'm new to the forum and have a Model 8 in 25-35 caliber. In disassembling the rifle I find the buffer spring and barrel nut washer are AWOL. I would like to get this otherwise fine rifle back into service but have come up empty in trying to find these items. I can make the barrel washer if I can't ...
