First topic message reminder :

I’m posting to help a fellow shooter in our local league. He’s shooting CCI standard through a model 41, performance center, and is getting light primer strikes a few times each match with the occasional failure to eject.  Gun is cleaned and lubed regularly. We’ve been chasing our tails trying to help him, but can’t pin point the problem. Any suggestions to lower the alibi occurrences would be appreciated.

Does the variability in the spring compression rate dictate the direction of the spring installation ? I wonder if designed to compress , don't know how else to say it,
variably to accomadate changing resistance if it does the same thing when reversed? Could the open coil end be dressed or slightly bent inward to avoid snagging?
I'm pretty sure I've used them both ways. Read the warnings, read the directions. . S&W springs don't come with directions so you can't put them in wrong.
But neither is it a variable rated spring. Rich

The variable rate is accomplished by changing the pitch of the coils along the length of the spring.  A bigger pitch tends to soften the spring.  If there is one end only closed and the other end open,then the spring could have different characteristics in different directions but it would be slight.
