John looks like your a gunsmith which is good to know as a reference.The Browning BDA is basic Beretta 84 series Double stack 380 ACP right? I would like to imagine Wolff is flush with springs for those pistols ,unless there’s something different about the Browning I’m unfamiliar with.

The spring is a double loop set at 90 so that it pushes north and east at the same time. It was discontinued a few years ago.

I believe these were made by Beretta. Would not a Beretta 84 or 85 spring work?

They are also perhaps difficult to find but maybe easier if you are casting a wide net looking for Beretta parts. Is this it?

You may have to make one, they may be hard to find. Do you have an original one to copy or blueprint?

I would also call Beretta, it wasn't long ago they were still selling Cheetahs. I bought a new one back in 2016

Also AFAIK the 82,84,85,87 all use that spring

Thanks everyone for the response. My customer is going to buy a "package of parts" that has the spring included.
