Panda action spring?
« on: December 11, 2022, 09:49:43 PM »
Anywhere in Canada that I could get a new firing pin spring for a Stolle 6PPC action?

If not, I don't assume there would be any issue ordering direct from Kelblys?

From what I've read this is an item that should be changed out periodically, might order a few and keep some on hand - change yearly perhaps.

Kelly, double check with Kelbly, but I think it is the same as a Rem 700 spring. That should give you a few more options.

I just received 3 new springs from Badger Ridge Indistries. You can Google it. Really fine folks, fast delivery, and good comms. For Panda's;  Kelbly recommends yearly spring changes and min. .240" pin fall.

I meant to confirm that for a Panda, you want a Remington 700 SA spring.

Xtream gun shooting center sells the bolt disassembly tool as well as the jig for removing the spring. They do have springs in stock but even with our poor dollar it will be cheaper to get them straight from kelblys.... I'm putting in my order as we speak. 😀😀😀

Kelbley Panda uses a 700 Remington Firing pin spring. Changed many of them over the years of shooting.

Further to my comments below, I did get 4 recently from Badger Ridge. Just changed out a 2nd one a few minutes ago. Of interest; the 4 I received are Rem. 700 SA. About 2 weeks after changing out the first spring, the rifle was suddenly shooting messy groups. Perhaps defined as "globs". It is cold to be sure but this change seemed odd. I came home and using a scale I have designed solely for this purpose; the spring pulled 20-21lbs. Down from 23. I machined a small shim (about .050") and installed it. Pulls 23 lbs 3 weeks ago and 23 today. Rifle also shooting dots again. Perhaps Kelbly's springs might be a better quality.  One I had from Pacific Tool and Guage, was more tightly wound, slightly longer and nice quality.  Pulled 22-23 for nearly 2 years but really expensive for just one. Be sure when you are done there is no binding on the bolt and I polish the firing pin. 1000 grip or higher.

All good information, thanks for taking the time.

I haven't placed an order for springs yet, but I did just receive my Kleindorst spring removal tool, headed in the right direction.
