Hello All,

I need to find a source for magazine springs for my EAA 10mm full size. I have tried http://www.gunsprings.com , the site for Wolf springs to no avail. When I talked to them, they said they did not make springs for the 10mm, it is too heavy to push, and were aware of the problem with EAA's magazines, but not much help. I have found that if I disassemble the magazines before shooting, stretch the spring out, and reassemble I have no feeding difficulties. This does not go well for a gun I want to keep in the car.

Thanks,

Thanks Atblis I will give them a call tomorrow. That is a great link. EAA has such limited resources available to the us shooter, it is good to find someone who caters to their shooters.

CZF, I ordered three of those mag springs after the first post from Wolf, I will see how they work.


I've got a bunch of magazines, so I am starting the experimenting process.

CZ extra power mag springs from Wolf and some squeezing in of the feed lips worked for me.

The Hennings are same as the EAA springs with extra turns for extended mags and non-lockback followers to squeeze in 20 rounds of .40S&W. I got one of each and found I'd lose a round of capacity with the standard followers so I didn't use them.

So the +10% and +15% springs from wolff wont work in the 10mm's? I hope they do. I ordered three for my Match, but they are on back order, so i got free shipping.

The +15% CZ springs worked for me with the assistance of some feed lip tweaking.
