What is the difference between a Wolff Spring versus a Wolff Xtra-Power Spring? Also, how does it affect the performance of the magazine?


The reason for my question is the following:

On the Georgia-Precision site, they have an adervtisement for magazine rebuild kits

www.georgiaprecision.com/cart/items/SpringKit.htm
--------------------
30 Round Rebuild Kits Include 1 New Chrome Silicon Spring. 1 Follower & 1 Floorplate $5.00 ea.

20 Round Rebuild Kits Include 1 New Chrome Silicon Spring. 1 Follower & 1 Floorplate $5.00 ea.
--------------------

These two advertisements are next to a Wolff springs picture. I assume (dangerous, I know) that the springs in the kit are Wolff springs. Springs are also sold separately for $2.00 at the bottom of the page.

Other places on the site, they have Wolffe (with an "e") "X-tra Power (+10%)" springs for roughly $4.50 each

This isn't a knock on Georgia-Precision, they just happened to be where I am shopping. I'm just looking to educate myself.

Bump.


Just because I'd like to know also.

There is no reason to use "extra power" springs in USGI magazines, nor is there rarely any need to rebuild them.
