Default Walter P99 - 9 m.m. now my newest .356 TSW

After finishing the Marlin Camp-9/.356 TSW,
I remembered that I had a spare Walther P99 9 m.m. barrel and an extra recoil spring for a SW99-45.
Do you see where I'm going with this?

Bored out the Walther P99 - 9 m.m. barrel to .356 TSW today.
Made a new steel recoil spring guide rod to capture the SW99-45 spring.
Test fired Hydra-Shok, Federal Match and then the CorBon's, all I can say is Yoweeee................Kool/PERFECT.

Made up some test "CorBon" rounds last night, will chrnograph next week if it's not to hot out.

Looking for my next project.

Default New Project - .357 SIG in a Ruger PC4

Hello all,
The title says it all..............
I found a .357 Magnum Chambered Barrel Blank from Numrich that was for a IMI Timberwolf pump action riffle ($27.00).
Barrel Blank, .357 Mag., 18-1/2", Chambered
Gauged the bore and it's within the specs of my other .357 SIG bores, same as all my 9 m.m.'s also.
The recoil spring assembly for the .40 S&W should also be compatible.
If not I think I can find a stiffer spring to fit and function well.
All I need to do is get it into a CNC lathe, might take a little while.
I'll keep you all posted.

My PC9 might end up as a .356 TSW if I get another 9 m.m./.357 Magnum barrel from Numrich.
But my Marlin Camp 9/.356 TSW Carbine is filling that role.

All my .356 TSW conversions that I have done could go back to the original 9 m.m. because I never sacrificed the 9 m.m. barrel.

Regards,
BMI

I happened onto this thread and just thought since You are into the TSW356 cartridge that I'll be listing for sale next week sometime a Like New S&W Model TSW 3566 along with any ammo that I have, both Federal and Corbon. I bought gun new about 12 years ago and fired less then 100 rds. I will really hate selling it but need the funds. If you'll interested, it will be listed in the "For Sale Forum"

Default Sent an email to Wolff Gunsprings today

I sent this to Wolff Gunsprings today, let's see what will come of this?

Hello,
I have purchased many different springs from you guys in the past, great work.
Now I have an odd request.

I have your springs in many, many firearms.
Including one mongrel in a EAA Wittnes-P 10 m.m. full size and it handles my NUCLEAR Reloads PERFECTLY.

I have three Marlin Camp carbines, two 9's and a .45 ACP with your 16.5# and 21# springs in them.
Great stuff......
I converted one of the 9's into a .356 TSW and used your 21# - .45 ACP spring, works perfectly.
(Paul Liebenberg of the old S&W Performance Center now Pistol Dynamics in Florida, said he couldn't make his work.)

I have also converted (with your springs) a S&W 6906 to .356 TSW with a barrel that originally came out of the S&W Performance Center as a test barrel.
A S&W 5906-.356 TSW, again your springs and I have also converted a Walther P99-9 m.m. using a S&W P99-45 recoil spring, just had to make the encapsulated recoil rod.

Now,
I also have three Ruger PC carbines, two 9's and a .40 S&W with some extra 9 m.m. barrels.
I'm working on converting one PC-4 into a .357 SIG, the stock .40 spring should work in that one.

But here's the one that I'm looking for some help with,
I'm working on converting the other 9 into a .356 TSW and need a stronger recoil spring.
Ruger uses the same spring in both the 9 and 40 carbine, they rely on the extra bolt mass to dampen the recoil of the .40 S&W.
As I suspected I do not see anything listed because of the nature of their carbine is pretty fool proof by design.
I was wondering if you could recommend any spring stronger than the stock PC-9/40 spring that would fit this application?
Or, could you give me the specs on the SKU 16800 for the Ruger .44 Magnum Carbine, XP Recoil Spring.
Or, I could get a new spring from Ruger and pass along all the dimensions for you to compare to your springs by dimensions?

I am a retired Aerospace CAD/CAM/CNC Manufacturing Engineer/Plant Manager.
I am doing all the chamber boring, turning and threading and milling in CNC equipment,
adhering to ANSI chamber specifications and standard SAE and JIS thread specifications.

Please advise, (HELP)
Thank You,
BM1

Received an email from Dave today with the information on the SKU 16800 spring.

Ref SKU 16800:
.056 wire
.728 OD.
.616 ID.
35 coils
10.75 free length

Now it's time to get going on this new project.
