ADG Bolt return spring question ...
The Classic/A.I.R. 68 automag springs had an upgrade in material quality at some point and I have no clue how to tell what is the better quality ones.
See some that are carbon steel BLACK in color ... ?
Some that are GOLD in color ... ?
Which is the newer spring
Older & Slower ... But well armed.

The gold ones are newer. I have one of each and use the newer one. I can't really tell a difference between the two.
Does anyone know if there is a difference between the blue bumpers and black rubber bumpers either?

I have always had gold springs on valves with the rt effect (classic rt, retro, x, emag) and the standard steel springs on classic valves unless the classic valves have lvl 10 though.
Ljpiller is probably right also though.

Searching before posting a question about springs and ran across this post...
I just acquired one of the older, carbon steel springs today from a local field owner who has been a 'Mag owner for about 15 or 16 years now. He swears that the older carbon springs are better than the plated springs now available. He says the hold up better and are less prone to stress out and claims that the plating process degrades spring performance. He stock-piled these springs years ago and has a dozen or so remaining that he is keeping only for himself. No clue why he decided to sell one to me!
So, I will be putting this spring in (my current spring needs replacement) and see what happens.
Anyone else have any experience between the two?
