Could it work without the spring?

OK, so I decide to do the bolt release mod on my 10/22.
I take it apart and remove the release. All very orderly and nothing goes sprong!
I put it back together and notice there isn't any spring action to the mag release.

I take it apart to see what isn't hooked up and don't see anything that would give the mag release a spring action.

I look up a trigger group parts break down and see there is a large spring around the mag catch.

I don't know how it could have gotten away from me but I can't find it anywhere. It's not the kind if a spring that would shoot away like the springs in an AR.

Anyway, this trigger group is new to me. Came from a Charger and I have shot it in my 10/22 a few times and didn't notice anything wrong with it.,

If the spring was missing before I took it apart, I would have noticed it correct?

Anyway, I guess it's time to find a spring.

I hate when this happens!

Anyway, thanks for letting me vent...

If ordering from Ruger or our on line gunsmith, get a firing pin, the little springy down under the FP and the spring on top of the bolt. Will be less than 10 bucks for all inc shipping. Then you will be ready for any break down, pretty much. Might even want a spare mag spring .
