Another good one for the FAQ:

Where can I get a replacement spring for [insert part here] and what spring do I order, what size, what coils, etc..

I'd love a complete listing of all the springs in the FAL and the corresponding Wolf (or other common brand) replacement.

DSA also offers a replacement spring kit for $35.00. all new or NOS styer replacement springs for every spring in your FAL. its a good insurance for those R1 kit builders out there that have 30-40 year old kits that have been used ALOT!!!( not to mention alittle rusty too)
