I have one, but I have no idea when they changed them or why. I bought one to put in my 3k flatline for a pump, but that never really panned out for consistency. I'm not sure there was difference from the stock flatline pack.

According to the AGD website, this is simply the standard AM/MM spring pack assembly. Says nothing about ULE or anything of the kind.

Wouldn't they make a distinction between the two?

And if they did, they surely would list the old style, but don't. This is all there is to be found of the classic spring packs. And when I scan about on other online stores, this is also the part they list for the classic mag, and they say nothing of the ULE.

This really is weird. I was sure most of you would have found the old style to be rare indeed, and expected nearly all of you to have the newer style.

Hmn . . . .

Guess maybe I should stick this thing in the old mag and see what happens.

Wait. This spring pack also works in the flatline?

I suppose they would have some interchangeability, and looking at that part on the AGD website its does look the same, but that's odd indeed.

Well, live and learn.

I made an effort to keep the two packs away from each other so I wouldn't get them mixed up. Whenever I come across the old flatline pack, I have to wonder where it came from. I'm afraid that if I put them together, I wouldn't know which was which until I tried to turn the flatline up to 800 psi or more. I'm not sure that is a real test either.

That was a joke. It would be stupid to tout a few tenths of a gram as ultra light engineering. Frankly, I don't know if I have the old, new, or both. I have 4 classic mags, but never really looked at the spring packs on them.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same. AGD has always been crafty in that sense.

That spring pack might have came out of an AA reg as well . Just throwing that out there I rebuilt a couple Apocalypses a few weeks ago and I think their spring packs had a larger disk on the end .

I'm pretty sure it's a manufacture thing. Different manufactures, different designs. The ANS regs also use the same type spring pack. There's are longer due to the longer cavity of the adj screw. Most of the AA regs and all flatlines use them as well.

I just swapped the top of an AA rapter reg onto my classic valve, and the spring pack from that had a larger ring, were the classic valve was like your smaller one.
