    Default Re: FN HP - Not fully locking after firing

    I've got a set of recoil and firing pin springs coming in the 29th...I think I ordered a set of three...I might have left over once I replace mine

    The HP needs to be “bathed in oil” you can’t ride this lady dry, make sure she is wet.

    Really? I have shot High Powers for some 50 years with never more than a light wipe of oil on the various rubbing surfaces; never had failures to close. Of course the pistol should be clean to start with. Peter

    The hand gun is old, from the 80s, and looks original. I think that it is 17lb and I would like to replace it. I have seen that Wolfe offers 18.5lb springs and I think that would be ideal.

    Does anyone know where I could get Recoil Springs locally? I live in Gauteng if that helps.
    Just asking.... Are you aware that the recoil assembly can be inserted incorrectly?
    live out your imagination , not your history.
