what kind of sick twisted mind could possibly connect a grenade retaining spring to that decription?

Banana peel or kermit the frog? I think the Kermit description is better.

It was the only thing I could think of, that in any way met the description. Those retention springs used to be almost free, seems like Sportsman's Guide had around half dozen for a few bucks, listed as Israeli imports.

Lunatics every last one of you, I'm in good company.

Just got the peels today---they look cool. Thanks for the tip Echo.

I was wondering, do the lock washers get used with these. And if so does it go in front of or behind the collar?

I used to have a lock washer on mine. From muzzle to chamber, Muzzle device -> Lock Washer -> Grenade Spring -> Barrel. I will send you a $1 if you manage to get a lock washer behind the grenade spring.

I've also heard them called "Rose Pedals".

I think CA considers anything remotely involved with launching a grenade a destructive device even separate from the firearm. I know the Yugo SKS grenade launcher muzzle device is a no-no in CA.

http://oag.ca.gov/firearms/zastava

" Any, grenade, explosive missile, or similar device or launching device therefor."

even Kermit's collar.

No, the problem is that people outside CA don't want to bother taking the time to understand our laws, and so they just won't deal with us.
Which is a major PITA sometimes.

Wait a minute..........you think the people OUTSIDE California are a PITA?

I never heard that one before.

As someone inside CA, trying to get things into CA that are perfectly legal, from people who have written us off, is a PITA, yes.

I wanted to bid on a Remington 870 a year ago or so, but the seller wouldn't deal with CA. The 870 is 100% legal in CA. I can walk into pretty much any gun shop and find a bunch of them. But the seller refused to sell to anyone in CA.

That's really lame imo.

I think I have a few spares somewhere.
I'd mail it to CA just for spite.
