Is the single wire hammer spring any good, or reason to replace the multi-wire spring?  It seems that the latter is much stronger and durable.  What do you think?

I've actually never seen a single-wire AK hammer spring.


This would be my signature if I had anything important to say.

Yes that's what I mean! I am sensing that most of the forum feel its just a marketing gimick.

Well, I'm one of those that really like the single wire JTE ones.  I run them on all my AK based guns and for me personally, I can feel the difference over the standard wound wire springs. 

Over the years and countless rounds, I've never noticed any durability/reliability concerns. In fact, on one of my saigas the wound wire spring would actually hang up on the bolt hold open lever and jam the trigger(russians didn't wind that particular spring tight enough), but the single wire one works beautifully.

So I suppose its mostly personal preference, but trigger seems smoother and lighter to me.
