Winchester 1873 dust cover question
I've got a winchester 1873 that had a dust cover that moved without any resistance. I bought a dust cover spring and installed it today and was disappointed in the results. There was tension on the cover til it completed closed. Then it wiggled back and forth sloppily when fully closed. It has everything needed to complete the operation including the dust cover stop. This can't be normal. Am I missing something or is this normal?
