I am not having a ton of luck finding new-old-stock WWII era recoil springs for my recently-arrived Bridgeport/Savage M1. Phil Askew said he is out of them, and I'd rather not use SARCO's springs because who knows how many rounds those have fired.

With that in mind, what is the general consensus on the Wolff Gunsprings M1 TSMG springs? They are advertised here: http://www.gunspring...mpson_RsNF.html Why are they called "extra power?"

Or, if anyone has any new-old-stock WWII M1 springs available, please send me an e-mail.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Phil:

Thanks very much for your input. I guess I am worrying too much, which is my tendency :-) I'll order a few from Sarco and try the Wolff Springs, both of which are darned cheap.

"They cure many inscrutable problems with various guns."

I have an Auto Mag that was inscrutable and after popping a set of Wolff springs in, it was totaly scrutable..... So I can attest to them helping in that gun.... Never had any Thompson spring probs*.....

*As in I just use the factory stuff with no problems...

I use Wolff springs in my M1, M1A and 1911. I've never had a problem with them. BTW, if you are a law enforcement officer, they give a 33% discount.

I ordered a set of Wolff Springs for my Reising because of repeated jams but after doing a disassembly yesterday and stretching the hammer spring a bit it fired super last night in a test .. WOOT!!.. tongue.gif

I will replace all the springs anyway so I figgered it wouldn't hurt to try the spring stretching .. cool.gif

I would say that getting Wolffs catalog would explain everthing in there. They explain everything about springs and it opened my eyes on the importance of them. "veriable' and 'conventional' springs are explained and "extra Power" in great detail. if you own any other weapons which take springs. This book is indispenceable.-adlake
