After a lot of dry firing I've noticed that my Victor became much easier to cock. This may indicate that the mainspring became weaker.
As I understand, resistance form hammer/mainspring may contribute to reducing the recoil effect.

I really enjoy easy cocking, but I am concerned with potentially higher load on the frame and recoil spring.

Looking for advise, should I change the mainspring (and go back to a misery of very hard cocking), or it is fine, as long as there is good recoil spring and no lite strikes?

What would it hurt on the pistol (besides your hand) to replace the mainspring?

Replace. No reason to beat up a nice gun. Good luck!

Thanks everybody! Going to harm my hand on both replacement and dry firing Smile

I hope I have one laying around, as it does not seem anybody sell them anymore (Wolf used to have one)

Can somebody please post a picture of a hammer replacement tool, just to get an idea of what to try to replicate? There was a description of a hand-made one in https://www.bullseyeforum.net/t4417-reassembly-of-high-standard-victor-hammer, but I just cannot visualize how it should look/work.
