    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    How long is the spring and how wide? You might find that something like a mauser m 98 mag spring might fit. A new one is 10 bucks or so from workshop innovations

    Cheers, emailed Julian.
    Anyone know if a M96 action ( and obviously mag spring as well ) is shorter than a M98 ?
