View Full Version : SVT-40 rear spring guide went flying and is now AWOL
08-14-2010, 06:22 PM
I was cleaning my SVT the other day, and as I released the recoil spring the rear spring guide went flying.:bawling:
It went flying straight into the junk heap in my garage, it's like looking for a needle in a needlestack.
So what I need is the dimensions of one so I can turn a new one at work.
Any SVT owners feel like posting a rough drawing with dimensions?

HA! I had the same thing happen to a trigger bar spring for a beretta 96. It took me about 6 hours to find the dam thing.

I have looked and looked, but the damn thing seems to be gone.

Bump for dimensions, I need to make a replacement as soon as possible.
I have all the toys at work, to make it.

I think I found some for ya. Cheap enough that even my cheap butt would probably just buy one.

Hello R S,
For a quick fix copy the picture from Surplus Bunker then dimension it from the diameter of the rod which is the same diameter as the spring guide middle section (photo analysis). A pocket calculator will help. See ???
