25-35 buffer spring

Post by Old Bull » Sun Jun 26, 2016 5:52 pm

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 find one but have no idea on the spring rate or dimensions for the correct buffer spring. Just wondering if anyone on here has one they would be willing to sell.
Thanks
Klaus

I'm not sure who has a buffer spring for a 25. If you find a buffer spring, make sure you can squeeze it shut between your thumb and fore finger - that is the right one.
The springs for the 30/32/35 are very stiff, and can hardly be compressed at all.

I have new barrel nut lock washers available.
