M1 Carbine Magazine spring replacement

Last week I had a chance to shoot my new Auto Ordnance M1 Carbine.

The new-old stock USGI mags from the 40's or 50's that were still in their protective wrapper fed fine - no issues.

I also had a few used USGI mags. The springs in those were noticeably weaker. You could feel a difference when loading them compared to the NOS mags and I had a handful of mis-feeds when using those magazines.

After a little research I decided to replace the springs in the used mags with Wolf Extra-Strength springs.

Night and day difference. The springs restored the mags to 100% reliability.

Well worth the $15 for a pack of 3 springs from Midway. The Wolf springs are heavier gauge and "longer" in an uncompressed state.

You can order directly from Wolff and get a nice discount with an FFL-03 (setup before the order).
