Another newbie SX1 question - are there any parts other than a few buffers, the recoil follower, and the cocking handle that are good to have around? The sort of thing that is either 1) prone to fail, or 2) good to check at each cleaning?

I'm thinking particularly about the various springs (for example, I always keep a couple Model 50 recoil springs in stock) but also open to other suggestions.

Thanks

The action spring should be replaced when needed.
A new spring is 30" free length. When it has sacked to 27" or less replace it with a new one.
Be sure to use only a standard spring like NU-Line Guns sell. NEVER use an after market heavy duty
spring unless you like troubles and failures.

If your gun has an early rib that is held on with a button head screw at the muzzle, remove it and clean the threads with a strong solvent and then replace it tightly with red Locktite.

Thanks for the minimum length on the action spring.

Nu-Line knows Winchester SX1 well. You can look at their 14 pc repair kit and get an idea what they think are the common wear parts. I've only replaced what searun said on my well used SX1 and it's working just fine.

I would keep an extra extractor and spring on hand and a bolt handle. Extractors break always at the worst moment
