Abstract : The inertial igniter assembly is redesigned to fire an M42G primer. An analytical approach is used to find the optimum design of the striker spring taking into consideration the criteria necessary to fire the M42G primer. Empirical data gathered by test firings are used to evaluate the analytical design. A generalized method of solution is presented that may serve as a standard approach for any future design of a similar mechanism. (Author)
