FWIW- I took out my S&W PPK with the spring that came with it, I have to assume it’s original. It too is shorter than the Wolff. I had bought a 4 pack of springs with different ratings. The original spring is flat on both ends. None of the Wolff springs are flat on either end.
I don’t see a concave cut. There is a small gap between the barrel and the frame (or whatever its called). But no way the spring will go in that gap.Does yours have the concave cut for a recessed spring?
Of course it doesn't matter in your case because your gun is an S&W and S&Ws were never counterbored.Alright, I’ve read all this but at the end of the day, does it really make a tinkers darn? We can see the original doesn’t go IN the concave in the barrel boss and the new one doesn’t either. Is this just a mental exercise of is there a functionality problem? I’m just curious as mine didn’t have it, and both my original spring (if it is) and the Wolff springs work as expected.
