Need some advice in a Coonan .357 pistol I just bought
I bought a Coonan Classic .357 pistol recently from a local gun store, used as a firing range rental. Decided to give it a good cleaning and change out the recoil spring with a new Wolff spring. The spring arrived a couple of days ago and I saw a second much spring that looks like a Coonan firing pin spring.
When I pulled the old recoil spring out, it was a good one inch shorter than the new Wolff spring, I was thinking the spring might have been clipped? But why would someone cut off nearly 20% of the recoil spring? The new one I installed and racked it a few times, pretty stiff but I expected that for a new spring,
Second question concerning the smaller firing pin spring..I swap out recoil springs every 4000 rounds,,,am I missing something by not swapping out the firing pin spring too?
Appreciate you help in advance. Thanks
