The Smith Shop Rio Grande SS Followers and Mag Springs

Postby Ranch Dog » 06 Sep 2013 14

I received The Smith Shop followers for both the RG4570 and RG3030, they are a perfect fit. Forum member joec did us RG4570 shooters a good deed through his efforts.

The 45-70 follower is $20. The #94x45 follower for the RG3030 is $14. Shipping is $3 per order and Mr. Bill English will accept payments to his email address via PayPal.

Bill also offers stainless steel magazine springs for the RG3030 and he sent me one for my rifle that has been rebored/rechambered to 38-55 Win. With the two new stainless steel parts, it spit those cartridges out with their big 250-grain bullets! The spring is the 73 X 24" spring. Though I live in semi-arid South Texas, the moisture we see is heavily influenced by the Gulf and it salt content. I've always pulled my Marlin magazine springs annually but I welcome the the chance to have the stainless. I've order them for all three of my R92s. Springs are $12.

I sent Bill my RG4570 spring and he took the necessary measurements. He would need to see a demand of a RG specific spring as he would need to order 1K springs, a minimum through his supplier. At his suggestion, I tried his '73 24" spring. So far it has worked with a tube full of cartridges using my 300 and 350-grain bullets. I will be working with my 425-grain bullet next week as I develop a load from my nilgai hunt with this rifle.

The preposterous disarm-the-innocent proposals from the left are a false flag. Guns are good. Guns protect us. Guns save lives. Guns stop crime. Guns are why America is still free.
