What is the strongest hammer spring available for an AR15? I built a 50BMG upper that uses an AR15 lower and it takes 2 or 3 hammer strikes to fire a round. This is not a pleasant situation when shooting a 50 BMG so I’m looking for the heaviest hammer spring available.

Wolf extra power spring is probably the heaviest.

Look at the positive side--I bet this situation exposes some serious flinches.

You might check into this one:

ROFL..oh man I could see myself flinchin so hard.


A new spring is definately needed. From what I've read that wolf spring is strong.

Thanks all for the help.
I'll pickup a wolf spring and see if it helps with my"flinching" problem

Another thought would be to get a heavier hammer.
Mark Serbu of BFG-50 fame uses a extra mass hammer in his BFG-50's you may want to see about purchasing one of his hammers or similar "heavy" hammers.

www.biggerhammer.net would be another resource for .50 BMG parts and related info.

Mr Serbu's web addy is www.serbu.com

So I got the Wolf heavy hammer spring and viola one trigger pull one big bang!
I still flinch but only once per shot now.
Thanks all!
