Either will have the recoil spring along with other parts for your 1906 pistol. HTH

Need to determine if you have a Model 1906 Vest Pocket, or a much later Baby Browning before you order springs.
They are not the same guns, or the same springs.

Many (but not all) parts for the 1906 will interchange with those for the Colt Model 1908 Vest Pocket pistol. I believe the recoil springs are the same, and Wolff has them (www.gunsprings.com).

sorry to drag this old thread back from the grave. life has been busy and i am just now getting around to working on this handgun. it is a 1906 model.

i will call jack first in the morning. Numerich says they are sold out of the recoil spring. i need both the recoil spring and the firing pin spring.

any other leads?

keep your eye on gunbroker... check wolff and other known sources for spring kits. They might have something.


EDIT: as jim noted above... wolff has the recoil springs and if you get a "service pack" it comes with a firing pin spring.

Service Pak - Type I - Contains the following springs to replace weakened or broken springs, returning the pistol to original factory condition: recoil spring, firing pin spring, extractor spring and safety plunger spring.

I called Wolf and Numerich.

Wolf had to hold a line and state that they did not have a spring for the 1906 but that the kit was such a low cost it was worth the try.

Numerich after some prodding on the phone found a replacement part number. I placed an order here.

Both companies treated me well.
