Looking for a firing pin spring to fit a FRANCHI I-12 semi auto shotgun. Anyone have one sitting around that they are willing to sell? Thanks

Thanks. I tried both of them. Put my name on the notifications list at Midwest. In a reply to an email I sent to Midwest they stated the part has been on back order almost six months.

Do you have the original spring or dimensions of it?

If so, it's possible, maybe, Benny could make one for you.

a phone call or email will let you know.

You might call Wolf Gunsprings. They might be able to help.

Ricci. Are you sure on that contact? Emails come back as undeliverable and phones unanswered.

Go to ACE hardware if you know what you're looking for.

I've got a bunch of springs, how about providing the length, outside width, number of coils and the wire diameter then maybe someone here can help match it up or even make one for you.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Found out that the Franchi factory does not sell parts to the general public. Found a gunsmith that has an account at Franchi that is ordering two for me. They will ship to him and he will forward to me. Not cheap but beats using the shotgun as a boat paddle

Always good to learn of a positive outcome.
