When things get old and worn out, they need to be replaced. Things like your blankets, your pillows, your parents and more. There is just nothing desirable about a clunker.
When it comes to firearms, parts and components can be easily worn after repeated firing. Some of the more common firearm parts to experience such wear are springs. The recoil spring, the sear spring and, most importantly, the hammer spring are all susceptible to wear. Before your springs lose tension and break, buy a few replacements. Start with the Heckler & Koch G3 hammer spring.
As noted, hammer springs are very susceptible to wear. Held under constant tension, the hammer spring is tasked with providing spring tension to the hammer, which you may know is one of the most important components of the firing sequence. Where does a broken hammer spring leave you? It leaves you with a floppy hammer that lacks the force required to move a feather.
Be smart. Order a two-pack of G3 hammer springs today for the absurdly low price of $3.95 and ensure a functional firearm.
The G3 hammer spring is a steel spring that is located around the hammer spring shank inside the trigger pack. As part of the firing mechanism, the hammer spring is responsible for providing spring tension for the hammer. When the hammer is released by the sear, the hammer spring forces the hammer forward and provides it with the energy required to strike the firing pin. This part is absolutely necessary for a successful completion of the firing sequence. It is an original factory part made in Germany by HK.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to any firearm. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially components of the firing sequence. The hammer spring is absolutely one of the most critical parts of a firearm. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.
