What does the Sear Spring in the SRS do?

Hey guys! I recently got an SRS Silverback, but with the 500 FPS spring it has installed, its a PAIN to pull back all the way to chamber a round (pull bolt). What's the most difficult for me has been the last centimeter or two of pull right before the bolt locks out and goes smooth.

Someone told me to remove the sear spring on the SRS to fix this issue, but I wanted to check here first to see if anyone could help. I just pulled the bolt out to re-grease as well as check for good airseal (yes all good).

Also, I have one of those "Flexible followers" for the SRS mags, should I install it on an old mag? I bought the SRS used, so the old mag apparently doesn't feed to well. I have an extra follower from buying a new mag, so should I install that? Not sure if Gen 1 or 2.

Let me know, and thanks!

Removing the sear spring was the first thing I did when I got my SRS. never had a slam-fire, and I'm constantly running 3+j. (Had stronger springs in without an issue)

Check out snipermechanic's srs guide (on hus blog) and you'll find alot of useful info. How to get the polt pull smoother and easier, and other things.

Edit: oh and instead of usin grease on the bolt, try cleaning away all grease and spraying some dry lube on it.

Gotchu, removed it, and no longer have such a problem. I'm downgrading to an M150, but I'll be getting a W.A.S.P. piston soon (hopefully), so I should still be in the ballpark of 500+ FPS. Thank you as well for the snipermechanics guide reference; ended up doing a lot of those mods to help with sound signature.

Lastly, any dry lube recommendations?

Most people use WD40 PTFE dry lube. Doesn't matter what brand it is tbh, as long as it say dry lube and is for metal parts.
