    Hi guys, I need some information about this damn spring (the wire diameter, the sprig outer diameter,the free length and the number of coils) and if any body knows the stiffness of it by(kg/cm) I'll be thanksful because in my country I couldn't find a new one so I intend to mdify an ordinary commercial spring and fit it in the gun.
    by the way would you please tell me about your opinion about that idea.

    You'll need to decide if you want a factory strength or stronger or weaker recoil spring. Wolfe is the best. But they make many strengths !
