Ultimate Hammer Spring Infographic- Trying to Give back
I recently worked on a few of my pistols- an HK45, 45c, and P30. I had a lot of help from this forum, and wanted to give something back. Here is a little infographic I made to help recognize different hammer springs for these models. Feel free to add pictures of your own hammer springs and their lengths if you have them.
Just as a clarification, it appears that 214300 and 215694 with the 215694 being just a tad lighter. If you have an extra spring of either one, feel free to take a photo and upload it. It seems like both can go into an HK45, but the 215694 isn't indicated for the P30. This is kind of confusing. Can anyone explain this one?
In any case, feel free to edit the photos if you feel there has been a mistake.

Don't believe everything you read on HKParts or a couple of other online vendors (Brownells comes to mind.) I found too many mistakes in their listings over the years. They also use the same picture for many different parts so beware.
215694 is the Match Hammer Spring (also used in older USP Compacts) and can be used in ALL pistols, except the HK45C, SKs, and VP series.
