Small Rosco with a live spring I need repaired

Post by Pile Driver » Wed Sep 23, 2020 6:53 pm

I believe it is a weak button spring, currently wont stay closed or if it does stay closed the slightest grazing of the button will cause the blade to spring open.

Anyone recommend a good repair man for this kind of thing and estimate how much it will set me back? Its one of my only vintage Italian knives so I would like to follow through with the repair since its nice otherwise.

Not likely the button spring.
Probably a worn sear/sear hole or both.
