How do you replace the mainspring and plunger tube spring?




I got a Wolf service pak to replace all the springs in my Remington Rand and can figure out how to replace the springs included except the mainspring, mag catch spring and plunger tube spring. Can someone tell me how to replace those three springs? Also, should I have a spring left over from the Wolf service pak type I? It says it includes a firing pin safety spring, USGI guns don't use that spring-correct?

Blacklab, nope, USGI pistols do not use the firing pin safety spring. So you have something to lose in your basement instead of the springs you are working on.

HEyyyyy, POST 1911 for me. I got there at last.....

Anytime you're messing with the springs wear safety glasses!
