Where can I get a spring for this?

Postby JamesIowaboy » Sat Jul 07, 2018 11:17 pm

I bought this knife at a flea market for $5. I have no idea of its worth. I want to fix it. Where can I get a spring for it? And what size are the rivets? The knife is approx. 7 3/4 inches long.

I have a couple of springs that might fit it... one from a newer cheap Chinese model and a couple other from AKC’s models if anyone knows what would fit it I’d be willing to send it to you. I am new to this site and don’t fully understand all the rules but... switchbladekits.com might have what you are looking for. Hope that won’t get me into trouble. I’ll post some pictures of the springs I have in a bit.

Please post a few additional photos your knife may have a one piece spring. Try to shoot the channel. It may possible to modify the existing spring and slip in an other spring. If not you’ll needs one piece spring. The replacement spring may need to be made from scratch. You’ll need to remove tend bottom bolster pin and the middle spring pin. You shouldn’t need to remove the stag scales. What is the stamp on the knife?

I’m guessing the brass pins are 1.8 to 2 mm. Check eBay, Amazon, Jantz, or google search for them.
