I don't know if the question should be here or in GUNSMITHING. Does anyone have any idea on the original, new length of the various springs used in the REISING M-50/55 subguns? Better yet, does anyone know of a source of new Reising springs? Ya' can find Thompson springs, ya' can find M-3 springs and Sten, etc but there seem to be no surplus Reising springs out there.

You might ask Frank Iannamico at iannamico@aol.com, he wrote the book on Reisings and ran a Reising Board until recently.

See http://www.gunsprings.com. See Reising under "rifle springs".

I heard from Frank and he told me to check with Wolff. It was getting pretty bad, having to stretch out the old springs and hoping they'd work for a couple of mags.
