    Hi guys,

    My friend is looking for a recoil spring for an HK53 rifle, any ideas where he can get one locally?

    Thanks!

    Checked Wolff Gunsprings at www.gunsprings.com and they still don't have it. You may want to tell your friend to email them if they make special order springs, but I doubt it.

    The HK 53 is a fairly new rifle; if you don't mind me asking, does your friend shoot it a lot? HKs have a reputation of having sturdy springs.

    Sir,

    from what I know, the HK53 is an old HK 5.56 assault rifle which was developed during the 70's, I am not sure if there are newer variants of this model available. I have attached some pics of my friends' rifle. It still uses the old style receiver and handguard and shows obvious wear and age. We are based here in the Philippines and would like to know if any dealers can get us recoil springs for this piece.

    Thanks!

    Or you might want to try calling APL in Cebu, and talk to Philip or Louella.

    Any Cebu-based BOGs who have their phone number?
