Firing pin spring

Post by gunnybedford » 18 Jun 2018, 19:49

So the saga with my Mauser .22WMR continues ! need a new firing pin spring, Mauser cannot supply them, and the company i found in Germany do not have any !!

Does anyone, anywhere have any idea where:
a. I could possibly get hold of a Mauser spring ?

b. Know of anyone who is capable (and bothered) to manufacture a spring that would suffice.

Cheers

Neil

Could try J&P springs in the us? They sell upgraded springs for rimfire.....worth an email at least, I think the P is Pete, he’s been helpful in the past.

https://www.jnpgunsprings.com/

Or it sounds like the sort of thing that Dave at Valkyrie might be abl to help with.... he’s Baldy on the uk varminting forum.

Hi Neil,

Have a look here:

http://www.flexosprings.com/stock-sprin ... on-springs

Just measure OD of the spring, length, number of coils and wire diameter and you should get pretty close.

If not they do custom springs, as do a company called Lee Springs.

Failing that a decent gunsmith should be able to make you one. :thumbup:


Cheers

Send the old spring to this firm they will copy and work out the spring rate from the material and dimensions. I have been there to the firm often on BMW projects and they reengineered a ballsed up design from BMW to make it work and they are of top quality. send it with a covering letter in english that will suffice, send it to entwiklungsabteilung Fa. Hirsch web site = https://hirsch-federn.de/fertigung/
