    Default FN HP - Not fully locking after firing

    Sometimes, after I fire a round the slide doesn`t fully close. I have tried my reloaded ammo and store bought, but both seem to not fully lock. I suspect that it is my recoil spring.

    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.

    I just ordered my replacement springs from Brownells. But if a local supplier is found I would love to know. Good luck, new springs make a big difference on those guns.

    Following out of interest. My FN HP is from 1965... Running perfectly at the moment, but want to get hold of a full set of springs, since I don't know when last they were changed. Awesome gun.

    I am also in the same boat. Mine is from 1975 and have no idea when (or if) the springs have (ever) been replaced, but at least it still eats up any ammo like it's hungry.

    How much did you pay for shipping? Cost and ETA are unavailable on all of them. Which did you use?

    Option...
    Do a combined purchase then split the cost of shipping

    I ordered from Brownells, just waiting on my order to arrive. I'll have extra recoil springs and firing pin springs if anyone needs.
