Finally got the Wolff springs in my .22 SP-101

Post by ruger22 » Mon Jul 06, 2015 1:21 pm

First order, they sent the wrong 14# hammer spring. I re-ordered an assortment, and they sent that free. I just got it in the mail. The 14# in the re-order is still the wrong spring in the right package. Apparently someone doesn't want me using a 14#..... :roll:

I've installed a 13# hammer spring and the 8# trigger spring. That cut the hammer pull by maybe half, and the trigger pulls by a third. I'm getting good pin impressions on empty brass, so I think the 13# spring will be a keeper.

That's an 18% reduction from the 16# factory spring. My Bearcat hammer springs went from 22# to 18# with Wolff springs, which is also 18% less, and they do fine. It's amazing how much of a drop in action effort that can cause.

Have to wait until Saturday to see how it shoots........ :cry:

It reduces stress and wear on internal parts as well. I'm glad you got them in.

I haven't done so in years, but I used to specialize in working on revolvers. There is something especially satisfying about working on a fine revolver, making it function properly.

I've never been much of a semi-auto fan. I like the mechanical movement, the clicks and ticks of revolvers.

I am a big fan of Wolff springs. If you have any revolver, even if you think it's fine, Wolff springs will likely make it better.
