Post range last night I disassembled to fully clean and oil (995TS).

Went well, everything back together, dry running seems OK, then I notice a 2 inch spring hiding under my Brownell's screwdriver.

Customer Service closed. Brownell's, Hi-Point, and Numrich's schematics are a little fuzzy on "spring in spring" between the firing pin and the post that locks into the rear of the receiver.

The only other spring is the recoil system, but that just doesn't look logical based on size. (On my S&W pistols, yes, the recoil spring would be nested), but the carbine's spring is just too much bigger.

I break everything down again, and come to the conclusion that the hammer spring is actually a spring in a spring!

Put it together that way, again seems to function, but I'd like a little reassurance before I call CS and look like a fool!

Also, does the firing pin act as a partial extractor? I see it sticking out so proudly until the slide begins to move forward that it made me think of an open bolt Grease Gun!

Thanks

The firing pin acts as the ejector, I'm fairly sure.
As for CS, you'll not find a nicer group of people to talk to, and if you think they might think ill of you, just tell them your name is Ampersand or Waltham41 :funny: :roflol:
I've had my 995 for about 6 or 7 years, and I hate to admit it, but I've never had it all the way apart :oops:

Dual springs on the striker, but should be longer then 2"...you have a very small spring in the trigger, between the trigger itself and the lever. Then the two striker springs. One under the sear. Your recoil spring. That's it.
File the ends smooth and it'll run a lot quieter.
The firing pin is also the ejector, which is why if you get a double feed or jam it will usually bend the firing pin as it's stuck way out there exposed. Not a great design.

Yes, there are 2 springs between the firing pin and the retainer, one inside the other.
