    I wrote to Wolff about making aftermarket springs for Steyrs. This was the response I got:

    Thank you for writing and for your interest in our product line. While we do not have plans on making replacement springs for the the Steyr M40 at this time, that can change as demand increases. About all I can offer is to run a database search for a similar spring. I'll need the OD, wire size or spring ID, the number of coils and the overall length of the existing M40 spring you're looking to replace.

    Sorry we can't be of more assistance to you at this time.

    Regards,

    Well, if enough people ask them, they will do it. Their e-mail address is:

    mail@gunsprings.com

    In addition, I will include a poll here so that perhaps I can use it to show them that indeed there is an interest. I may also include this same thread and poll at Glocktalk in the Steyr forum, so vote there too. Your comments would probably also be useful.

    I'd jump all over this if they had springs for the 9mm's. I like to buy a pack or two to keep around - it's cheaper than buying new mags when the springs crap out.

    one nice pack w/ every steyr spring would be VERY handy to have around

    It's probably a good idea for more and more people to e-mail them.

    Dunno if you guys have received the same, but I just got an e-mail from John Andrews at Wolff regarding the Steyr springs. Basically, he politely said what we all know - there currently are no plans to develop the said springs, and even if there was it would take up to a year to finish. He also kinda hinted that our e-mails are not exactly going to send them running to the drawing board, but again - very professional and polite. I doubt this little campaign will yield any results, but hey - never hurts to try.
    Too bad.

    As the saying goes "the squeaky wheel gets the oil". If you say nothing you will certainly be ignored, speak up and maybe you get ignored.

    That's a hell of a lot more than what was written to me. If indeed he hinted that our e-mails won't send them to the drawing board, that is the first I have heard of an acknowledgement by them of a collective effort campaign. That means it's working...if only by getting their attention. I just hope that it doesn't run out of steam. That is what Wolff is probably counting on.

    Tell your Steyr-owning friends to e-mail them as well...and even the ones who are in the process of acquiring a Steyr.

    Just got a responce, all he said was what was first written, that they don't make them, and to give him to od/id and all that for the springs. At least they are willing to help you replace them. Perhaps someone who has avalible money to just throw around could tear thier Steyr apart, measure all the springs, have wolf find them, and order like 50 of each, then just bundle them up, and sell them off... Might be a money maker for said someone. Wish that I could afford to do this, but the IRS has me by the balls for a couple of months.... :oops: So just a thought....

    I'm probably not saying anything that everyone else hasn't already thought, but I would do it if I was guaranteed to have all the springs replaced. My only fear is that I send them the springs, they do all the measurements (allegedly) and then send me back my now-worthless damaged springs months or years later with a note saying, "Oh sorry...We can't help you. Here are your original (now damaged) springs. Good luck!"

    The only way that is even remotely going to happen is if I have two Steyrs and can stomach one being out of commission for an indefinite period of time...or at least until someone finally starts making springs for them...which at this point seems as if it is the same thing.
