Mg42 recoil spring

Postby flemgunner » Wed Jan 09, 2019 6:16 am

Hey y’all have a question. Does anyone remember the recoil spring length check using the gun as a measurement. It was like backnof gun to rear sight or something?
Also is the true length of a new spring 16.9”?

With the rear sight flap flipped rearward, the spring should reach from the rear of the receiver to the sight flap.

Can't say about the length of a new spring.

Stay dry down there in Texas. :)
