The problem I’m having now is that by using a fixed rifle length buttstock the spring is too stiff. WC uses carbine style buttstock on all their factory builds and they recommended finding a spacer and putting a carbine spring in it.

I have taken some off the rifle spring before .I usually take less than 1/2 a turn at a time. I read where you take 1/4 turn off but that is really a hard spring to cut . That’s why take 1/2 turn off. Make sure you take enough off so the bolt catch locks on last round. Springs are only 5$ and after I get my rifle broke in I would put a new spring in it and repeat the process. I hope this helps and I would like to read some other opinions. Short stroking was my first problem I ran into on my first build.

I tend to avoid cutting springs until it’s the last resort. Bad experience with lowering a car, LOL. I ordered a spacer and a JP carbine spring. we’ll see how it works then. Thanks!
