Replacing springs on a Reising Model 50

Location:

3 posts in this topic

The Reising Model 50 that I own came with a set of Wolff replacement springs. There are ( 8 ) springs in this set of Wolff springs.

How big of a job is it replacing the ( 8 ) springs?  I have field stripped this weapon a number of times to clean it but I have never disassembled 

the Model 50 to the extent that is required to replace the ( 8 ) springs. Are there videos available to demonstrate this process?

Any help is appreciated.

Replacing the springs is not difficult and is well worth the effort.  Doing so made mine run better but still not perfect.  I found that replacing all the magazine springs also helped the overall reliability of the gun.  I used Christie 30 rd. springs cut in half to replace the springs in my 20 round mags.  I believe Mr. Christie has been retired for quite some time so I don't know a source for 30 round springs.  I don't have a video for you but I think if you replace only one spring, that would be the recoil spring.  As far as I recall, you have to run the action bar way down and insert a pin or punch in a cross hole in the guide rod, or whatever it is called.  Then you have to release the pin while holding everything so the spring doesn't shoot off into the stratosphere.  Getting the new spring on, compressed on the rod, and the pin reinstalled will be a minor PITA but needs to be done.  Let us know how it goes.

Good luck,
