I need to replace 2 of the springs in my 226 hi cap mags as they're just worn out. I've had them for close to 12 years now and the slide fails to stay back after the mag is empty.

Does anyone recommend a good place to get these from online?

Thanks in advance!

Is that a spring problem? Have you tried using different springs in the same follower to see if you can narrow it down to something else? Maybe a follower problem? Or slide stop spring?

I have 8-10 mags for the gun, and it's only the two that have been used the most and are the oldest. When it was loaded as a home defense weapon, they were loaded most of the time. The other mags work fine.

UPDATE - Where to find Sig mag springs

Just wanted to thank those who pointed me in the right direction. New springs installed and the problem has been solved. Was at the range tonight with the mags in question and I put through 200 rounds without a problem. Loaded only 5 rounds at a time in the mags to really test it out.
