We are happy to offer a much-needed item in the toy soldier community. This is a replacement firing spring set for the legendary Britains 4.7 naval gun. The famous miniature weapon described in H.G. Wells
renowned book "Little Wars." first published in 1913.
Some of the 4.7 guns that we see come in to our shop have springs worn out from playroom battleground field service. The range and accuracty are significantly affected when firing if you have damaged or worn out springs among your toy soldier battalion. This replacement part will help get those guns back into action. These springs are for the very first series of guns which used brass or steel firing levers that were actuated by two flat springs. You will receive two flat springs which are custom cut to fit the original 4.7 gun carriage.
Please note: this spring set is for the original 4.7 toy naval cannons which utilized the flat springs. If you have a coiled spring version of the later type, this will not work, the firing mechanism of those guns are altogether different. We offer replacement services for either design of gun. Please contact us if you require a spring or firing lever of any toy cannon, we can make replacements or repairs.
