Stronger Stop Spring?
I have generally replaced the cylinder stop spring with a stronger one from Wolff when working on .357 or .44 revolvers. But not on .22s.
Do you all think that always upgrading the spring is a useful thing to do??
Glad to have found this forum.
If the factory spring powers the bolt correctly, installing a stronger spring may actually cause problems.
That would be the stronger spring causing the bolt to drop sooner.
With modern revolvers like the S&W and Ruger that isn't a problem.
With the old Colt actions that's not good and will alter the critical timing.
One up side to a stronger bolt spring is in very fast double action shooting it will make it more probable that the bolt will intercept the cylinder locking notch and not give a Throw-by condition.
I don't know what Jerry Miculek recommends but if a stronger bolt spring was any advantage he'd be the one to need them.
Many Thanks. I thought, with no proof at all, that positive engagement with heavy recoil might be insured with more spring force on the bolt.
Well, probably not.
