I hope you get an answer, because just today I was out in the garage cleaning my Spectrum (and a few others also) and you're right that sucker comes out real easy, but going back in it wants to bend before I could get it compressed enough. It's almost like it's the wrong spring or a bad design. I don't have any spring problems with reassembly of any of my other pistols. Also if I'm putting a product on the market, I had better be ready to support it from day one, not weeks or months after the item is already in the public market. We shall see what happens.
