Conversion

Has anybody ever successfully converted an Openil to automatic? I’d like to try what would be the best way, kick spring or coil spring?

I am not sure? Do you mean the one with the wood handle?

Yes, I’m just not sure what would work the best or if it would be possible at all. Maybe split the handle and hollow it out. Then cut brass liners for it.

Yea,that is the way I would go. Split it,make liners,then you have the option of coil or leaf spring.
