As the topic states. I just bought some springs for some straight 20 rd al bodies. The springs have 16 coils. I think they sent me 30 round springs instead. I read somewhere that it should have 13 coils which still seems like a lot. Thanks in advance

No markings on the packages.

The old GI 20s I have have about 10 1/2 coils. The spring wire is a few thousands smaller than the springs in a 30 round mag also.
