    I posted a few days ago about getting a Wolff Springs that is dimensionally the same as the stock FP spring. I order a Wolff Spring "4-10 English" and it is the closest in wire diameter and OD to stk spring (Both dimension is +.001, negliable diff.).

    The 4-10 English is four inches long, I trimmed mine back to 2.75" . Smooth jaw plier to flatten the last coil on trimmed end. and tightened the last coil a bit so it lock onto behind the collar.

    IT FREAKING WORKS PERFECT, the pull is consistant now and weight is unchange from factory (at least not noticable to me) and it resets everytime.

    I have an extra one (only one), if anyone with reset problem wants to give it a try, email me at pittwmnospam@comcast.net (remove no spam). I will put one in the mail to you at no charge.

    120 rds UMC 250rd bulk pak. I ftfire, light primer strike/hard primer? I inspected it, the dud round was striked but not ingite, put it back into the mag and rechamber and it went down range.

    4 FTF, the shell fall off during extraction and causing a double feed. This is not FP spring related...Anyone have a fix for it?

    don't use umc.

    simple as that. my gun is 100% all day long, can't get it to jam... until i put umc in it. it's not just me. a lot of people have trouble with umc in their steyrs. don't know why.

    i've had great luck with cci blazer brass, wwb and independence ammo.

    it's possible the umc might have caused your light primer strike as well. i haven't miked any of it but i almost have to think that the casing diameter is bigger than other brands. or maybe that the brass expands more when fired.

    in any event the light primer strike probably was related to not being in battery as opposed to your firing pin spring.

    but how was the spring? did it really contribute to a smoother trigger pull?

    It really resolves the issue of trigger reset. The next best thing would be sending it into the SteyrArms when they open for warranty repair, but thats still sometime away.

    The pull weight is consistent now as oppose to sometime light sometime stiff when I had the factory spring installed.
    If you want, I send you the extra spring and you can test it out yourself, just email me your addy.

    i'll get one for myself and try it out. i appreciate the offer and hope you extend it to someone else. i suspected that there was a spring out there that could be made to work. cool that you found it. i'll let you know how my experience is.

    being from pittsburgh, i'm wondering about your name pittwm. you from the burgh too? or just fond or 18th century land grant recipients.

    i see wolff spring paks everywhere, but i can't seem to just buy the 4-10 english.

    do i have to buy a whole pack of otherwise useless springs? or can i get a few of just the 4-10 english from someplace?

    You can buy directly from them and it costs $3.45 each or something like that, or you can buy an assortment package from Brownell cheap, you get 4-1 to 4-10, ten springs each size for $15.00 or so, and it has all the small , light weight springs you'll ever want to do repairs with.

    I learned that after I ordered mine from Wolff.

    I just send mine to a fellow Steyriod in WA, or else I would've send it to you.
