    I am having FTE and Stovepipes while on stock springs. Any suggestions on what # of aftermarket springs I should get?

    I know I need a lower #, since less gas is pushing the cycle back.

    Thanks.

    I would contact SWR to see what they suggest because that shouldn't be happening. Ideally, the booster they recommend for the host weapon should be all you need. That's its purpose.

    Springs are so cheap I'd buy a selection of them and try them out until I find what works. I already own several myself.

    You are using the booster spring and not the fixed spacer right?

    Contacted SWR and first off, the booster spring of the Trident was jammed up.

    Cleaned it up, lubed a lil and now it can be "pulled", meaning it has give when you pull the Trident and 17 in opposite direction.

    So, its not the booster. Its the spring.

    I guess I will have to buy several lower # springs to see which one cycles best.

    I was wondering what # has someone had luck on already and where to buy it.

    Thanks

    It just need a few rounds shot.

    After a third straight FTe, it ran like a champ through 100rds
