Have you ever changed a mainspring on a MKII?
I fixed my MKII, I didn't lose the detent ball or the spring, and after I was done I didn't have any spare parts left over.
Test firing comes tomorrow.
IM me your address and I'll send them to you.
Yes, I have. All in just a shade under a few hours.

I ended up making a jig out of plywood and finishing nails, then also a severely dremel-modified screwdriver.
It was many years ago, but I recall it because I went in to the smith the following day to tell them how difficult of a time I had with it. The pistolsmith there chuckled and took me behind the counter and opened a drawer that contained several plywood & finish nail jigs. The one labled "MKII" had distinct similarities to my copy.
Thanks much, IM inbound.
