What do people use to hold their various sized recoil springs?
I'm looking for a pouch of some type that I can readily ID each and not get them mixed up or confused. Presently I have each still in their orginal plactic baggie and banded together in my toolbox.

I am not trying to make fun of you, Tator, but that is a new one on me. The idea of carrying around a bunch of recoil springs seems like a golfer with a club in his bag for every occasion. I guess I am just not up with the times.

I've actually seen something like this (segmented plastic pouch), can't recall where.

I just keep spare springs in their original packaging, rubber-banded, sorted by gun, in parts bins in my work area.
It's not like you need to carry that many with you at a time, is it, unless maybe you're an itinerant traveling gunsmith?

Best.

Pouch

Wilson has one that comes with springs but is small. I use the old plastic packages that punch & chisel sets or even wrench sets come in from the manufacturers.

The are segmented, plastic, clear, markable, assorted sized sleeves and can be rolled up.

Oh good idea....I didn't even think of that. I guess I go to Pawn shop to look for the drop forged aluminum tools and pouch for $4.99 :D
