    Wolff Hammer spring.

    Sorry if this has been covered before but I'm new to the forum and couldn't find a related thread.

    Has anybody installed the Wolff reduced power hammer spring for Marlin lever actions?

    Midway has them for $6.99. Reviews are OK except for rimfire applications.

    If you do get misfires it seems like that is easily cured by adding a washer or two.

    My application will be on two JM marlin 1894's in .38/.357. A his and her's deal.

    Comments?

    Mine in a 1894 (357/38 cal) won't reliably ignite small rifle primers. Does OK on small pistol primers.

    Tried one in a 336 (30-30)... Wouldn't reliably ignite large rifle primers so I had to go back to the factory spring in it (can't substitute Lg pistol in place of Lg rifle primers).

    My .02,

    Wolff Hammer Spring

    Guys has the reduced hammer spring improved your accuracy? I'm looking online research before I do anything. I have the WW Happy Trigger installed already.

    More often a stiffer hammer spring will make accuracy better.

    I've found with the reduced hammer springs accuracy and reliable primer ignition will require a one piece firing pin. Them you can get at www.longhunt.com


    You can also get reduced springs through them. Titanium one piece firing pins also. Few other items for Marlins.

    I have one in my Remlin 1894 44 mag.
    I didn't shoot it a lot, bench rest, before I installed it, so I don't know if it hurt the accuracy or not.
    My rife came with a pretty sweet trigger from the factory, no perceptible pre-travel, no creep, clean brake.
    It lightened the trigger further, somewhat.
    The most noticeable thing was a much lighter ejection/ cocking effort.
    My daughter thinks that it was a tremendous improvement.
    It shoots less than 2 MOA, maybe 1-1/2, as much as I can tell because I've not shot targets with it enough to know for sure.
    (I'm too busy exploding plastic containers of water, and laughing like a little boy)
    I have thought about doing some bench rest testing, with and without the lighter spring, but I haven't gotten to it because of Winter.
    For what they cost, it's pretty much a no-brainer, and, if nothing else, you'll have an extra hammer spring in case you need one.
