Why doesn't it come standard lol. After a short range day, I can definitely feel the difference.
(SOCOM II in an EBR mod 1)
Anything else I can upgrade to make a noticeable difference?
[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKATXQuDId8[/ame]just curious, what makes a spring guide a nm? how can a spring guide improve accuracy?
Without the bolt in my rifle, I can't feel anything but smoothness when I cycle the op-rod back and forth with the USGI spring guide. I just can't see how a different spring guide could make it any smoother.Installed one in my Scout last week. Amazed at how slick the bolt moves. Fired 50 rds. Sure feels better. Just ordered another for my Standard. A great improvement over stock part.
Took a lot of the jump out of the rifle. The difference in recoil is like night & day isn't it?
With the stock off your rifle ,look at the spring on the spring guide it's doesn't lay in a consistent linear manner, some of the spring hangs to the left some to the right as the spring bunches up over the spring guide, and it NEVER goes back in the same place. When you put a Sadlak in the spring is centered no hanging off to the left or right and it returns to the exact same place centered after every shot. So instead of the spring wadding up, it maintains a correct spring shape with the Sadlak and smooths up the compression and release of the op spring and making it more consistent. Consistency and removing variables is the key to accuracy. I don't know if it reduces recoil , but it does smooth the recoil up . It wouldn't sell so well and be one of the 1st modifications mentioned by almost every M1A/M14 shooter on this site IF it didn't work. Some mods are eye candy designed just to sell parts for imagined problems and fixes , the NM spring guide is not one of them, Dollar wise it's one of the best improvements you can make to your rifle. PS Watch the video the Shooter put in upstairs. If you can't see the difference on the video , no amount of words will help.Without the bolt in my rifle, I can't feel anything but smoothness when I cycle the op-rod back and forth with the USGI spring guide.

How can the spring guide affect recoil? This is a new one for me.
I can see the difference fine, thank you.PS Watch the video the Shooter put in upstairs. If you can't see the difference on the video , no amount of words will help.
Quite a few less uncalled flyers , my groups are tighter spaced. This modification was originally developed by the Army and Marine Corp Armorers building rifles to compete at the National Match with, who welded the mag hook end to a round rod with a tapered end. Sadlak just took that proven idea and made a one piece model. Look up the history of it . It works.I can see the difference fine, thank you.
How has it affected your groups?
Sadlak has two detailed pages explaining all the differences between USGI spring guide and their National match guide. Just read it!I can see the difference fine, thank you.
How has it affected your groups? I read about people installing a NM style spring guide all the time but they never follow up with proof of results.
