Magazine springs are a type of compression spring, with oval or rectangular shaped coils, made for use within firearm magazines to push bullets or rounds into the chamber. These springs must be made with precision and our advanced quality control.
With the various types of firearms comes a variety of spring design possibilities, ranging in length, number of coils, and force needed. Most magazine springs function near their solid height, so rate becomes a very important design factor.
To calculate Rate – the change in load per unit deflection – for a compression spring:
This is only valid when the pitch angle is less than 15° or deflection per turn is less than D/4. For larger deflections per turn, a deflection correction should be used.
