Three Nail Norm Posted August 14, 2021 Share Posted August 14, 2021 On 8/13/2021 at 3:51 AM, Nostrum Damus SASS #110702 said: The spring in its relaxed state (which cannot be known because it is captive) MUST IN ALL CASES be longer than the distance between the collars that capture it -- there can be no slack whatsoever. That much I've figured out. But how much shorter they can be without ruining their function, I was unable to figure out with just one set to work on. Another way to lighten a spring is to remove material from the sides of the spring, making the spring wire thinner. I've seen posts elsewhere talking about lightening the hammer springs of Ruger revolvers using that technique. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
