STONEY BURKE:
Does anyone make a reduced power mainspring for an 1875 Uberti?  Thanks.

Klondike:
Stoney,
     I have not seen any, but you can hour glass yours and get the same results. If you are concerned, buy a spare or two, they are cheap. When shaping, do not getit too hot and radius the edges. Do a little at a time until you get the feel you want.

STONEY BURKE:
Thanks Klondike.  After looking around for springs and not finding any, I figured I'd probably have to try it myself.  Don't know if you're familiar with the gun, but there's a small screw on the inside bottom of the grip that apparently increases/decreases tension on the spring.  What exactly does this adjust?  I've played with it a little bit, but I can't really tell any changes other than the hammer won't cock if it's screwed out too much.  Thanks again.

Klondike:
Actually it just holds the spring in place.

Micheal Fortune:

   For springs you can always check out Wolff gun springs.  Your Remington is not listed but you can always go to this page,
