There are pictures of the trigger spring in this forum. You will have to do a search.
Super simple system. Less parts to break.
I love the Mowreys...have owned every model they made over the years.....The difference between the Indiana and Texas models is that the parts wont exchange...or so I was informed by the Deer Creek person.....
Wish I could say the same. The one I built from their parts (plains rifle) is certainly not well made at all. Very nice wood however.
SPUR8 decided what to do with it. I am really enjoying the rifle. I did take it back to more primitive sights.
I did not know springs are available, This one could use a new mainspring, it does hit a bit light.
Where can I get parts?
Deer Creek has parts for Mowreys.
Here’s the Mowrey Plains Rifle my brother built back in the late 1970s. 58 cal. He cold blued the barrel because he lived in an apartment at the time so he didn’t have the facilities to rust blue. The bluing has worn a bit in the last 40 years
I contacted Deer Creek in early Oct. They confirmed they still have parts.
The gunsmith at deer creek didn't even know what a Mowrey is.
That shop seems totally lost in space.
They have a lot of cool muzzleloaders for sale, but seem to be in a vacuum on how to fix them or find parts if they are in stock.
Interesting difference in the posted pictures.
One has the tumbler with a boxy shape and not protrusion off the back
The other (like mine has) is round with a post off the back that engages the cover in what would appear to be a support role, supporting the tumble like a bridle does on conventional locks.
Can anyone tell me which is the older and which is the newer design?
Has anyone been able to find a serial number index with potential dates of manufacture?
been so long since I had mine.....cant remember how the lock parts looked …..sorry
My ca. 1990 Mowrey has the round post [supporting] tumbler, so I'm thinking it's not the earlier model (boxy shape). Btw, the earlier Mowrey's were made in Olney, TX and thought to be better made.
