Just recently took delivery of a Bridgeport/Savage TSMG M1 and would like to purchase some new recoil springs. I am looking for original, i.e. circa WWII, recoil springs that are unused. I would feel better about shooting this fine old weapon with a known new recoil spring because who knows how many rounds the original spring has on it. Does anyone here know who/where to go for new old stock M1 recoil springs? I do know want West Hurley or Kahr springs. Thanks very much in advance for any help you can give!

Glen Whitenburger on this board sells new manf. recoil springs and they are excellent quality. Watch the length and number of coils on the old springs. I have seen them vary greatly. BTW the M1 uses the same spring as the 1928.
