Hi, Jethro:
  I can't help you with a schematic, but most old pump guns used a wood dowell that fits inside the magazine spring. About 3/8" works well. You don't want a tube diameter dowell that compresses the spring when the magazine is empty. Cut the dowell a bit long and try it, then shorten as necessary.
As my old blacksmith said, "Cut it off twice and it was still too short". <!--emo&:)--><img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->

Sorry to have been absent here, but have been working non-stop on lots of fronts.  Bullets being the foremost, and this website the second.  One of the features you'll find go online with the new website tomorrow, is a remake of GuNuts!  It will be totally interactive, much like, where you can add schematics and exploded view drawings of firearms from a very simply interfaced control panel.  It won't have any member mumbo-jumbo, and uploading a scanned image will be quick, easy and hassle free, for situations just like this where someone needs a schematic, chances are someone else will too, at a later time.  This will provide for an ever increasing and more comprehensive resource for everyone.  We think you'll like the changes!

Better go make a bullet!

God Bless,
