Where do people find these torsion springs? I've seen both Angel and T da B's writeup and they both have huge torsion springs. The ones on McMaster all appear to have super thick gigantic wire with a ton of coils so I'm kind of at a loss. If they aren't available to purchase is there some alternative?

You can also stick in a short compression spring to aid in catching.

I hope that this isn't reviving a dead thread (I don't think it is)

On to what I was going to say, I good replacement catch spring is the torsion spring on those little one-hole punchers you used in kindergarten, it is a little big but the adjustments aren't to large.

Another option is if you are using or going to make a polycarbonate trigger, you can cut a little post in the trigger to a accommodate for traditional compression spring.
