Can anyone please furnish Pix and deminsions, etc. of the Barrel Release Lever Spring. I've been searching for months and can't find one to purchase. Maybe I can find someone to make one. Year-1914, model-1909 in 6.35(25ACP).
A Steyr 1908/34 in 32 cal. If you push the spring tensioned lever on the left side down, then it allows the forward portion ( barrel and recoil spring assembly ) to pivot/tip up and forward. Sounds like yours fits this description, BUT I think the 25 cal ones are smaller and we have different model numbers.
A Pieper 1909 in 25 cal ( but not entirely sure as it has things in common with a couple models..ie the 1914 , the Arico and the Pieper-Steyr ). It is considerably smaller than the above AND even though it has a release lever on the left, when it's pushed down, I can lift the entire slide assembly off the frame. There is NO spring putting any pressure on the release lever.
