I'm looking for a hammer strut assembly for a 9 Hi-power with spring pressure of about 26 lbs., does anyone know where I can get it??

THANKS, OZ

Browning has this available and you can check out their website. I also believe you can check with the "usual" folks, Brownells, MidwayUSA, Sarco, and Numrich. This should not be difficult to obtain.

Let us know who you order from and how it goes.

You can also order direct from the manufacturer, Wolff Gun Springs.

Hello,

In 1972 FN made a production change to the firing pin spring. The old spring had a wire diameter of approximately .024". The new spring is approximately 1/8" longer & is made from .030" diameter wire.

Some time in the 1970's after the production change was made to the firing pin spring, FN started receiving reports regarding no fires & light strikes. This was because the original 26-Lb. mainspring didn't deliver enough force to over come the new firing pin spring when using ammo with harder primers and then (sometime in the 70's) FN went to the 32-Lb. mainspring and all was well again.

I've been told by some solid folks that the hard primers was mainly found in Middle Eastern SMG Ammo - but why take chances, especially with a pistol that you may depend upon to protect liberty, life & property.

Personally, I only use Genuine FN-Browning Springs (and parts for that matter) and I upgrade any & all Pre-1972 High Power's that I work on to the current factory springs, and here's a thread that should help you understand why I won't use Wolff Springs http://www.handgunsandammunition.com...placement.html

BTW: If you wanting a 26-Lb. Mainspring in order to reduce your trigger pull, it simply isn't needed, because you can still achieve a good clean, lite pull with the 32-Lb. Mainspring when a proper trigger job has been performed. Ask Frank how his trigger is since he received a real trigger job on his HP with the Factory 32-Lb. Mainspring still in place. http://pistolsmith.com/browning-pist...r-problem.html

Hello,

Wolff is Not the spring manufacturer for FN. Wolff is aftermarket.

Hello Ray,

The 26-Lb. Mainspring hasn't been available from Browning since back in the 1970's when they went to the 32-Lb. Mainspring.

Thank you Bob, I was trying to be helpful, but I was sincerely wrong. I appreciate your gentle correction. I was thinking about the strut assembly, not the spring.

Best regards,

Ray

Very sorry for not keeping up to date with this thread. My wife has spend several days in the hospital, life before and after have been a little hectic.

As to the trigger job, I could not have asked for better. Bob knows his way around and through a Browning High Power.
