I took my bolt mismatch G.98/40 to the range this morning. Using 1970's (not 1950's) era Yugoslav ammo, I had to hit 5 of the 6 rounds I put through the gun twice. :(

Anyone know where I can pick up a replacement striker spring? I don't intend to shoot the gun very often, but I would like to know it functions if I want to use it. I'm wondering if either the carcano or mannlicher striker springs at www.gunsprings.com will work? Anyone know?

At least the gun appears to be a tack driver. :)

Whatever else you do, don't break the extractor. Replacements are very difficult to find...

It ain't the spring, it's the hard primers on the early Yugo ammo...

It's late Yugo ammo. If my notoriously weak-springed G43 can touch it off, this little bugger better be able to too. I'll keep up the troubleshooting and spring hunting.

Is the interior of the bolt loaded with grease/cosmo?
If you want to increase the strength of ANY spring, remove a few (2 or 3) coils and install a spacer to make up (or even increase) the length of the original spring.
I know you don't want to chop on original parts, but if all you want is more spring tension and you can't buy a stiffer spring....
