I need an arched MSH

1468 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  BigBoy
Anyone have a Colt made arched/grooved mainspring housing available? I'm restoring a series 70 gun and need one. (I've looked at the afternarket versions, but prefer an original Colt part). I'll be having the part nickel plated so the finish condition doesn't matter (or if it's blue or stainless), as long as the metal is mint condition (not beat up, or nicked in anyway)

Thanks - Mike

Brownell's has Colt parts though they are composite. I was looking for an arched housing myself and this is where I found it. Though plastic, it may suit you in a pinch.
I have an arched, nickle plated main spring housing that came off of a Colt 70 series, I will look for it if you are interested.

Now that I have popped off, I hope I can find it.

No man is above the law and no man is below it. Nor do we ask any mans permission when we require him to obey it.
I have an extra blued steel arched housing off a pre-Series 70. E-mail me if you're interested.
I found it, looks good too. Let me know. As a side note, this is not a complete unit, just the housing.
Just started looking myself for a steel arched and was told Auto-Ordnance will sell their arched mainspring with a lanyard loop if interested.
SMith and alexander make MSH's for both mag well and without. They are pricey, but they feel great.
