Can I get a new spring for my L42A1 magazine? Anywhere?

Or maybe a new magazine...That is asking too much, right?

I feel it is a different spring from a #4 mag, correct?

Thanks for any help, guys!

They are not the same spring.

The 7.62 spring is 5mm wider than the 303 one, and the length of the individual "coils" is 15mm shorter.

I think that a 303 spring could be modified to fit - you would need to square off the end of the spring which slides under the follower, and narrow the width at the topmost bend of the spring to fit inside the front lugs of the 7.62 follower plate.
