Segmented follower spring

Post by uhjohnson » Sun Sep 08, 2019 10:58 am

My follower came out of the magazine well like a Jack in a box and I do not know how to orient the spring to get it back together right the first time. I was surprised to see how it was put together with riveted segmented pieces.

Never saw one that was riveted. Very small spot welds on any I have seen.
Wisner's still has them for sale, $20.

This is a standard "old" spring. Wide leaves to the back.

Like said above, stack the spring with the un-riveted ends towards the rear of the magazine to reassemble.
