    Lighter Browning buckmark recoil spring?

    Anyone know where to find one? I'm trying to help out a family member with some gun issues and a lighter recoil spring would probably do the trick. I'm not exactly sure what the issue is but my dad was asking if I've ever seen them. I didn't ask what was up with the gun but he knows what he's doing, just can't find the part. I can't find one anywhere. Even wolf doesn't seem to make one.

    Snipping a couple coils off a factory spring might work but would rather find an "engineered" solution with a published spring rate.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I've been looking for one to allow my Ruger to function with cb longs.

    The only solution I've found was the snip and try method. It isnt perfect, but it works most of the time.

    If you find some, post it up. I'm interested.

    No one?

    Glad i'm not the only one that couldn't find anything. Guess it's snip-try-snip time :)

    For a .22 rim-fire pistol...you can just buy another standard weight recoil spring & start clipping coils and then stretching the spring back out to the original length.

    Not something that I would suggest doing with any center-fire self-defensive firearm.


    Remember this - as you gradually clip/weaken and stretch the recoil spring - you might reach a point where you'll very likely need to also need to reduce the upward pressure of the standard factory magazine spring - for obvious reasons.

    So plan on buying another magazine spring as well.
