Urgent assistance requested (spring problems!)

Postby Ivizalinto » Thu Mar 13, 2014 3:32 pm

Hello again to those of the forum. Today I come to you with a problem that is partially my fault.

First thing is first. I had a moment of possible insanity and bought a Snow wolf m99. Yeah i know...snow wolf x.x. Anyway, the rifle looks amazing and shoots very hard. So hard that it broke the springs reinforcing the sear in the first few shots. This brings me to the question at hand. I need a set of new springs. Not just any springs. They need to be stronger! More durable! Possibly lemon scented if you have them!

Does anyone know this particular torsion spring and where to get ahold of replacements, preferably in better material? Link below to a video showing the springs. I cant get a good screen-shot of the spring nor do I have a camera. So thats a thing.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Due to the kinda crap customer service of the site I got it from (and ill admit the thing looks amazing!) I wont be returning it for store credit. So need help in fixing it.

This is the first time I've heard of the spring in the sear set actually breaking. Usually, it is the sear set itself that breaks. Unfortunately, I'm not 100% familiar with the Snow Wolf M99. I hope you find the spring though!

Thats what surprised me! Its a really nice 90 degree sear in the thing. The reinforcment springs however couldn't hold the pistons force and when it fires it just destroyed the tiny things. Thats why i need replacements for them. Wondering if a whole new sear would be better to get though. I mean the sear itself works...theres just nothing holding the sear in locked position now so I cant cock the rifle.
