Assembly Issues

  1. I recently purchased a new 995. I have 2 issues, if anyone can help, it would be great.

    1. The recoil spring has a plastic tip on one end. Does the tip witht the plastic end get inserted in the channel or does it rest again the breech bolt?

    2. I insert the firing pin, the firing pin spring and the bolt retainer. I have another spring left, does it slide over the firing pin spring?
  2. Welcome to the forum.

    I believe the plastic end of the one spring goes in the channel and yes there is a larger spring that fits over the smaller firing pin spring.

  3. Thanks for the info.

    I had a 995 a while ago and at that time, there was a little plastic sleve that went over the firing pin spring. And the recoil spring had one end tapered.
  4. yup waltham is right. They recently updated the firing pin design and made the change to a two spring setup.
