    Exclamation Ordered New Springs today...

    For those of you that CC a semi auto. First off let me say my HK USP has been flawless these many years. I have cycled a great many rounds thought this pistol with out issue.

    However on my last two tear downs (weekly) where I also strip and clean the mag the rounds would not (hand) eject clean. First time I just assumed it was some crud.

    So this week I took a closer look...
    No damage or apparent wear on the mag...
    This mag has been under full compression near 100% of the time for over 8 years now (except when I MT it for cleaning or at the range)...
    Reliability is of prime importance so I put in a call for new Wolf springs of all three (the other two are newer and do not exhibit this issue but why wait).

    So here is the $25,000 dollar question how are your mag springs and when did you check them last?

    Wolff is behind filling orders so it may be awhile.
    I plan on changing springs in my carry mags that are under full compression once a year, cheap insurance.

    Even Wolff suggests storing mags a round or two short. Go figure.

    That seems to be the magic key, not fully compressing the spring.... But me I want those extra 6 rounds from my 3 mags.... In a emergency CLICK is the loudest sound you will ever hear.....
