New Magazine Springs make a difference.

If any of your remember my previous posts about the problems I was having with my vintage Winchester 92 and antique Colt Lightning, both in .32-20, I'd like to report that putting new magazine spring in both of them that the problems I was having seem to have vanished.  I won't know for sure until I actually fire them, but the both cycled a full magazine's worth of cartridges with no problems.  

And yes, the original springs on both did have some noticeable "defects."  Dented, compressed and stretched coils, and well as a a couple bends in the Winchester.   Oddly, the Winchester's spring was in much worse shape in spite of being decades younger than the Colt.

But, they are both fixed!   As far as I can tell.
