Wild Bodie Tom (SASS #67918), a gunsmith of 35 years, designed these 6-round conversion kits. The kit contains a customized spring and follower. It works because the spring is tapered so it collapses inside the follower, thus allowing more room in the tube for a full six rounds.
There are two different kits, one for solid-frame (short follower) and one for take-down frame (long follower).† The kits are easily installed and a gunsmith is not usually required.*
— 1 Magazine Spring

Works WellI have one of these that I have used for about 3 years now. Probably shot 25 to 30 matches with it. I would say it is well worth having in your Winchester '97.
