    Field Strip My Sig

    Sig 239 SAS

    From Sig's website the recoil spring is supposed to go on the guide narrow side first.
    I'll be dammed if I can see a difference in the diameter of the spring on either side . Is there a tell tale sign of when you do it wrong?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Some of them have a painted end, that would be the narrow end. Otherwise, look at the coil itself, its apparent when you look at the wire and not try to determine the diameter of the spring.

    If you can't see it, you can feel it. Trust me. You find the end that fits tighter. Usually the coils are closer together at that end.

    or you can roll the spring across a table; the side that appears to spin faster is the tighter side. Its the last couple of coils your looking at, as it rolls the tighter coils will be more noticable when compared to the larger ones.

    Just for future reference, once you determine which end is which, put a light coat of highly visible paint on it. That way you won't have the confusion the next time you field strip it.

    Good ideas guys! I knew it was simpler than I was thinking it was. Funny I used to roll pool ques like that to see if they were warped.
