Default Spring kit from Brownells

Thinking about getting a spring kit from Brownells. Has anyone done business with these guys and what is your impression of their spring kit quality?

Never bought the spring kit, but Brownells is the top gunsmithing supply in the country. I've bought more stuff from Midway, in general (because their prices tend to be a bit lower), but it's hard to go wrong with Brownells.

I don't know what kind of spring kit you are going to get, but I have bought replacement mag springs from them. They are a good company to do business with.

They are an excellent company to deal with. Some of their spring kits are by Wolff, who is the premier maker of firearm springs of all types. I wouldn't be surprised if any Brownells private label kits are made by Wolff.

Brownells is a top notch company and I have been pleased with everything I have ever bought from them!

I use them in my 22 builds. They lighten the trigger noticeably. If you are going to use them in a center fire build I would recomend useing their low mass speed hammer or bobbing your own hammer.
