Yes, I believe they offer 30 and 40 lb mainsprings. The stock one is 17 lbs. Wonder what double action pull is with the 40 lb. one? Bowen in his writeups of ignition failures mentions another possibility is a divot could form on the transfer bar reducing firing pin protrusion. This can be found in the news section for Dec. 11, 2011 at:

Recently took my 45 Redhawk down, did a light polish on trigger surfaces, and installed a 14 pound mainspring. Afterward, it wouldn’t ignite Winchester primers, but did ignite Federal primers every time. So, I re-installed the factory spring, and it still won’t fire Winchester primers.

This is my first Redhawk, and I’ve never worked with the single spring action before. Is it possible I got something out of whack on assembly? I’d really appreciate some help.
The only thing that will make a Redhawk misfire is a Bubba.
