    Magazine Spring and Follower for BSA HUNTER .222

    BSA Hunter .222 Mag spring and follower. Has been lost or misplaced while getting a rebarrel. I know you keep them next to the Rocking Horse shit.

    Pretty sure a CZ Mini Mauser spring is compatible

    Thanks for that, I know the early Sako 222 springs fit but also hard to obtain. The gunsmith fitted a Browning spring and follower but of little use.

    Is the BSA follower Alloy, I can't remember, I normally keep BSA Hunter/Regent etc .222-22Hornet parts just in case I get one with those bits missing, must have had over 10 (small-short actions) but keep selling them !

    Have emailed him but is out of stock of both parts at the moment, said he would be in contact if more parts arrive. Thanks.

    @tetawa I’ll ask my gunsmith up the road. If I can find one here in the uk I can bring them out to NZ in March. Cost plus postage from nz...sorry won’t be going through the king county. It’s ok I won’t charge you any airline shipping fees

    Couldn't you make a cast of an existing follower? Should be straightforward? I seem to remember you have one already.
