Cutting Coils on a Spring

Recommended Posts

I plan on cutting a couple of coils on my SHS spring to get under my field's FPS limit. However, I don't have a jet lighter/blowtorch available to heat the spring to shape it after cutting. I'm guessing a normal lighter won't have enough heat to allow me to shape the spring.

 

Is reshaping the spring completely necessary? Also, I'm guessing I'd cut coils from the piston side of the spring (not on the spring guide) since it wouldn't be shaped.

Reshaping the spring is better than not doing it. However, you can minimize issues by filling off the sharp tip so that it is more rounded and doesn't dig into the piston as much.

 

The purpose of reshaping the cut end is so that a flat end is pressed against the piston, rather than a single point.
