Now I have lost the Magazine Disconnect Spring!!!, LOL, LOL. It is not funny, but I was trying to be Soooooo carefull not to lose it that I did. I was working on the kitchen counter with a pad underneath so if it fell out it would not roll or bounce off the counter......wrong, it went somewhere.

I guess I will be calling S&W for a replacement and some spares tomorrow! I think I will buy several springs just in case I do this again.
They sent 2 for free. I think the best thing to do in the future is just to remove the springs on both side and place them in a safe place. I would put it on a magnetic tray. That way you can also clean the bolt plate and other parts around that area.
