so i got a kit from GunBroker a while back and when i started the build realised that not only did i get three of the small triangular trigger detents, but it was missing the trigger spring that hold the detents against the pin flange to engage the cluster. It also keeps the trigger from side to side movement as it's pretty close to the upper rail. RTG has it shown but is out of stock. I can find no other supplier that has this part even listed. I'll trade a detent...lol...any help is much appreciated...

cheers....

Yes, it is 0,7 mm spring wire.
Annealed/thoughen in 240 - 260 Celcius degrees.
And 3 left turns/scrolls if you know what I mean.

I'm not a spring maker but imho at first you are wrapping it and then annealing/hardening.
Ask in some workshop whos makeing springs.

You've got all the details so you can pass it to someone who know how to make it.
