magazine tube upgraded, squeaky noisy spring


Recommended Posts

Just did the upgrade, but, man, is that spring noisy in there, (Wolf one). I oiled it a bit, along with the follower...is this common and how long will it last?

Have yet to take to the range, been busy with work!!

The spring tends to squeak when inserting rounds into the magazine. I would not recommend oil on the inside of the tube, followed or spring. The lubricant will collect dirt, fouling and buffering media and cause the magazine to perform poorly. Sometimes this is the cause of the magazine to fail loading the last round from the tube. 

I made a polishing jig where I run steel wool in a modified drill chuck or off the lathe to polish the interior of the tube. While it does help with the noise, it never completely goes away.
