If I break a bolt spring, I replace that with one made of .050 piano wire. it's tough stuff to bend but when the job is done, they are more reliable.

Sorry I don't have photos of Remington parts with them but the methods are the same.

Plus every time you cock your piece it plays a tune . . .

Here's a video on installing piano wire springs another way.

That puts a whole different meaning to "tuning" your action. ;D
