    first chance to shoot it since i received it back from repair. fired a quick 100 rounds at 7 yds. three mags, 2 15rd and 1 10rd, no mag problems either. no hiccups, no ftf, no fte, just a nice bang each and every time i pulled the trigger. oh yeah!

    sorry about the poor pic, had to use my camera phone. when i disassembled it for cleaning, i noticed the recoil rod assembly is a little different than the old one; the spring is a flat coil rather than a regular spring.

    Hiya maj* :)

    Whataya mean? :shock: The recoil spring from your M-A1 was a typical compression "round wire" spring like a 1911 and your new replacement recoil spring one is "flat wire" one now? The "flat wire " type recoil spring is all I'm familure with for the S- and M-A1's. :shock: Same goes for my Walther P99's. <shrug> Can ya elaborate a bit or do ya have any pics of the other recoil spring assembly...the one that came stock when first got it? I'm really curious. :shock: Oh well, hava great weekend. :)

    Wulf <-- wonderin' if round wire and flat wire are the correct nomenclatures for recoil spings :shock:

    Run another 400 or so rounds thru it to check reliability.

    Recoil Spring for M-A1

    +1

    My M40-A1, S/N 048XXX has the flat wire spring (and plastic guide rod) also. Only round wire springs for a Steyr I've heard about are aftermarket. :? As long as it extracts and ejects reliably, does it really matter? :wink: Still, it'd be interesting to know if there is a factory round wire spring.
