The dummy bent the return spring

I bent the return spring on my Model 60 while reassembling with oily hands. The good news, the replacement is only $2.69. I ordered 2, just in case I get clumsy again.

Oh, by the way, It performed just fine with the bent spring yesterday. I did have one failure to eject properly. I suspect the bent spring is causing the bolt to move a bit too slow.

I woulda bought six of them. Those tricky buggars bend really easily.

Welcome to the Spring Benders Club.

The trick to not bending the spring is lots of facial contortions and mutterings.
