    This is probably the most simple topic in the world to the M1 crowd, but I've been having some pretty general issues lately so I'm just going to pull out the old Wolfe springs service pack and break it down.

    I have heard (over the internet:/) that the extra power recoil springs were overkill and could cause some issues, specifically the recoil springs. Any opinions?
    My gunsmith is in Florida for a month and the smith at my range had issues removing my trigger housing. As in, didn't know how. Anyway, spring gun maintaining time is here and I welcome your expertise!

    Thank You

    Orion 7 is an excellent source of replacement recoil springs for the Garand.

    I bought a full set of springs for the M1 Garand from Wolff Gunsprings. They work very well and fit perfectly. The full Service Pak for only $29.99 is a good buy.
