Hello,

Can anyone tell me where I could find the parts for the infamous spring loaded AR upgrade?  I picked up some used Torium's in the older model that I would like to upgrade.

Parts are Shimano TGT 1303 & TGT 1304.  If I can get the wire material and wire diameter, I was going to try to make them myself by buying spring wire.  I can have some made locally in Houston for about $10 each (depending on how many I buy...just don't need but 7-8 pcs. and no one will touch that quantity).  Thanks!

So, Alan, do you have a source for the springs? I kept most of the pawls as I replaced the old ones with the TGT1303 so have a few that I can peel off the fingers and file smooth if the customers pawls are too beat up....but those springs are the problem! I too got a heads up from someone in Houston who got the price down to $5 with a minimum order of 100.

a local spring manufacturing company also told me that it would be $5 per piece for about a hundred pieces, but that was years ago.  with the number of these reels decreasing, it might not be worth it.   Undecided

I haven't tried it but I will look into it in my next service of any of the 16/20/30/40/50 Trinidads/Toriums.
