    howa magazine follower spring

    So im looking to try a Magazine follower spring from a Howa in my Kimber 223. I guess it would need to be from the mini. I had a look at one in a gun shop that comes with the Howa when it ships they diddnt have a spare one at the time. It looked like it would be an easy fit. It would be going into a blind mag Kimber 223. My description could be a bit off hopefully someone can figure out what I mean. Cheers

    Are you looking for a mag spring from a Mini Howa or the Howa 1500 short action, springs are completely different. The Mini is tensioned wire spring, the short action 1500 is tensioned flat Z spring.

    @wire hunter, Have you got one of these sorted yet? I have a set of bottom metal, magazine box and action screws etc. that is all available from a Howa 1500 Short Action. You are welcome to buy the set if you like? It is left over from a MDT chassis conversion.
