2 in 13 years.  A front ear cracked on one and this one split in the rear across the pilot hole.  Same gun, just lucky.

Spring steel.  I'm not sure if it could be done successfully.  I'll just find another.  I'm sure my "Uncle Sam" had lots of them made for spares.

Thanks.

 

The originals show out of stock.  I have some originals on the way.

A dealer in the UK has a couple of originals for sale, if anyone is interested. I bought one to add to my deactivated, former IRA, 1928A1, as that was missing the breech oiler.

 

Stay safe
