Moar Pressure

Today's other "gunsmithing" adventure is the installation of a Wolff 18-1/2 lb. recoil spring in the Browning.

Ayup, that's a stronger spring than the one in it.  Longer too.  It's longer and stronger enough to be irritating to install, but not too bad.

This change is to protect the gun from "modern" ammunition.


  1. I'm assuming you're talking about 125 gr, 1400 fps 38 Super loads?

  2. 124gr 9x19mm NATO loads for my High Power.

    The Colt is the .38 Super and it prefers the 115gr Cor-Bons at 1,425.
