    I am able to answer your questions in part.

    1. A B&H Imperial in the 11" bell era is the same as a Besson New Standard. I "think" that they switched from the medium shank receiver to the...

    John Morgan,

    I am using the Steven Mead springs on my Sterling (that has Bauerfeind valves as do Adams). I have had the same set of coated springs for 10 years and they work great. Ne'er a problem.
