    Need help with American Firearms 25 ACP

    Hello all.
    Iím attempting to fix for a friend an American Firearms Mfg. pistol in 25 ACP. My primary issues are:
    1. Not a gunsmith
    2. No drawings or parts schematics/lists available.
    3. NO HELP after initial contact and wonít even respond to emails from the current owner Elizabeth (American Derringer) of the old defunct AFM. They want nothing to do with this gun and are happy to see it dead.
    4. Itís my buddy favorite (deceased) uncles carry gun from way back so itís sentimental.
    5. It seems to have a non original slide spring and is missing the firing pin spring.
    6. No parts avaliable on any of the usual sites- Midway,Brownells,eBay or Numrich

    1. This Wealth of knowledgeable and helpful people on CB.
    2. I purchased a like size (ID/OD) spring from some measurements I took of parts it fits on/in.
    3. It is a $100 gun at best so Iím not worried about screwing up a heirloom and neither is the owner.
    4. It is similar if not identical to the American Derringer model LM5
    5. I am really good at mechanical repairs and understand more than the basics of guns mechanically.
    6. I have time to research and restore this gun.

    ANY help in the form of pictures,drawings or leads to other resources are greatly appreciated!
