Magazine rings are the form of compression springs. The design uses rectangular or oval coils that are housed in a magazine, such as the kind used with firearms. In this application, the spring pushes the bullets or rounds into the firing chamber. Designed to last for a number of years, the springs are often made using different grades of steel. Depending on the steel used, it’s a good idea to check the spring at least once a year and replace it if there are any signs of a decline in function.
It’s important to match the spring’s load rate with the type of firearm involved. Since different firearms use varying levels of force to achieve different ranges, always consult with the firearm manufacturer to determine the right rate for your replacement magazine ring.
In short, a magazine spring contains rectangular or oval coils, and it is located inside the magazine or charger of a firearm to push the next round of ammunition upward for location in the chamber. Although the function of a magazine spring is almost always the same, they must come in various sizes, lengths, forces, and numbers of coils. Getting the magazine spring right is imperative; otherwise, the bullets may not load correctly. Measuring a magazine spring is not difficult. You need to know the greatest width, the wire diameter, the shortest width, the length of the spring, and the number of coils.
Whether you need to replace a magazine spring or you want to design a spring to work in a firearm prototype, we can help you. With the aforementioned measurements, we can custom-design a magazine spring to your unique specifications. It is necessary to ensure that the right amount of force is placed on the bullet in the magazine, so these measurements must be precise. You must also decide whether the spring will be coiled at the end so it can be secured by a pin. This allows the spring to come into contact completely with the walls of the magazine, reducing the potential for damage in the future.
