Wolff I'm familiar with, Trapper never heard of them nor does anything come up on the net. Is that spelled correctly or just a guess like......

Lindsay "Trapper" Alexious located in Michigan. One of the old time smiths. Not as well known as many of the others. Sold gun springs under the brand "Trapper." Built some chopped guns on various platforms including a cut down S&W 39 contemporary of the ASP that he called the "Scorpion." We had a long conversation once about one that I was going to purchase. You can still find his springs around. I was using them before I knew of any other source. I think he's in bad health now.

Radio story this A.M. that Trapper closed

The story was that the place was closed and people were having trouble getting their guns back.

Hello: Use ISMI springs and you won't need to replace them for a long, long time. Thanks, Eric

Or Wolff, either and both are readily available for a very reasonable price. buy several and different weights and learn what works best for you.
