Yes, of course we have that information. All BHSpringSolutions Main Springs follow the original factory weights for each Main Spring variant/Hi Power model, and produced with our enhanced production standards. Is there a specific Main Spring you are interested in purchasing from us?

I was wondering how strong will the 2 point welding hold. Well, I think it is strong enough...

Slav,

Just sent you an email concerning the mainspring tool and another item. I can see how this tool could definitely help these old hands of mine.

Installed the spring kit on my high power last week, tested it out and flawless!

Also emailed you about the main spring tool.

Actually all I see are spring kits and no hammer springs available separately. What am I missing?

They are not finished yet. Except for the laser cutting, welding and hardening, all processes are made by hand. Every tool is hand tested for proper function before sending for hardening and bluing. Every tool will also be hand tested after receiving them from hardening and bluing prior to shipping to customer.
Currently we are on time and I think all ordered tools will be delivered in the promised time frame.

Slav, you are really providing some excellent tools for we Browning nuts, and I for one, can't thank you enough. Then, on top of giving us what, until now, had been unobtanium, you're making them available for unbelievable prices. I will never buy anything you make for my pistols from any other source.

Thank you for the kind words C.
Can't remember if I told you the story behind BHSpringSolutions, it puts some light on our pricing strategy. Maybe some day I'll share it here.

Bellow is how the first function testing and adjusting looks like. This happens after the pin welding and prior the final hardening and hot bluing.
Please be advised - if you find minor scratches on your new tools - they will be caused by the final tests.

I am starting to get anxious now that I have seen the update. That tool is going to be a real help at my workbench.

Magazine Spring Survey

This is a request for input, somewhat an informal survey, from Hi Power Owners/Members of the 1911 Forum.
We (BHSpringSolutions) are considering production of replacement Hi Power magazine springs. Weak magazine springs are a malfunction risk, and healthy magazine springs contribute to optimal reliability and function. And as long as the overall integrity of the rest of the magazine is sound – magazines are usually every bit as good as the spring inside. Replacing a spring is far more cost effective than replacing magazines.
With the wide variety of Hi Power magazines in use, the business question of the day on our minds, is “where would we start and stop?”
We already know that it probably won’t be practical for us to cover replacement magazine springs for every type and capacity of Hi Power magazines in use. Replacement magazine springs for the most common 13 Round magazines in use (such as have been provided as OEM from FN/Browning) are already on our radar screen and we do expect to offer those in the future. Our question mainly leans toward all the other magazines in use that would fall under “other” – and there are quite a few. The flush fit 15 round magazines now available from MecGar utilize a different spring. The spring in the 15/17 round KRD magazines is still yet another variant. And we know there are other aftermarket variants – not to mention the higher capacity magazines.
So – we ask you – in regard to Magazine Springs, how can we serve you best? We will appreciate all input and expertise.
Thank You to all who take the time to provide input on this topic.
Slav and Mark, BHSpringSolutions

For me the 13 and 15 factory/mecgar would be the most useful. Also in stock in this household are 10rd 9mm and 10rd .40's

All of my BHP mags are of the 13-15 round variety(mostly 13 round). I don't foresee any changes in the future.

For me, 13rd factory would cover 99% of what I use. I use KRD mags, but not enough to ever wear out the springs. I also utilize a couple 20rd factory mags on occasion, but once again, not enough to ever wear out a spring.

Currently have 5 BHP mags:
3 OEM 13 rounds
1 Mecgar 13 round
1 Mecgar 15 round
13/15 round mag springs would do nicely for me, 13 round spring first to replace the older OEM springs.

Tools are ready!

I'm happy to inform you that the mainspring tools are back from hardening and bluing. Today I'll make the final function tests and tomorrow they'll start their 6000 miles journey to you.
Thank you all for the support and the patience.

I'm posting this to acknowledge my experience with your trigger return spring. I am primarily a 1911 shooter but also have a really nice customized MK III HiPower in 9mm. My gunsmith tuned the gun to have a really crisp 4lb trigger, however, I don't shoot it nearly as much as my 1911s due to the difference in reset between a tuned 1911 and a HiPower. I read about your line of replacement parts on this forum and ordered your trigger reset springs. I had my gunsmith install your 2 coil spring last weekend and am really pleased with the result. The difference between the factory spring is amazing. Obviously, it can't change the length of the reset due to the geometry of the Highpower trigger but it made the reset and the return motion of the trigger to the point of reset MUCH more positive the stock spring. The heavier spring did increase the weight of my trigger by about 3/4 lb but the overall feel of the trigger is so much better I will gladly accept a bit more resistance . The trigger also resets now with an audible click which is the first time I have had that experience with a HiPower. It isn't quite as audible as a Glock with the "New York" trigger, but definitely an audible, positive reset. Thanks again for a great product.
Joe

The NY trigger in a Glock is one notch quieter than slamming a car door

I'd like to see a 15 round replacement spring for both the Mecgar and KRD magazines.
