FM 90 Hammer Spring Weight

Would anyone here know the hammer spring weight in pounds of the Argentine FM 90?

All I can say is FM was very good about sticking to FN specifications from 69-89. I know of no reason why they would deviate in spring weights begining with the 90. I no longer have the 90 I acquired marked as imported by Sport Arms Miami. My feel o meter is pretty well calibrated. I did not detect the main spring to be light. It is something I have felt in other used hi powers. I currently have one on the light side and two of the standard post 75 more or less 32s. All are spur hammer and I would have no difficulty picking the light spring blind folded. If there is doubt as to an existing spring, I would opt to replace the strut assembly with one from Arnold MO.
