If push comes to shove rolling block mainsprings are one of the easier mainsprings to make.

Yup. You can just get one off the rear axle of an old dump truck. I think my military action uses one.  It almost takes two thumbs to cock it.

Ive gotten so lazy I buy the springs stock from brownells or buy stock from a place like speedy metals. The extra money is worth the time you save with a hacksaw
