I've been looking. I can "barely" reassemble the gun. I need one (captured guide rod and spring) badly.
My hands are getting weak.
It's the only gun I have with which I struggle.
I do have many other guns that don't have captured springs, but the Taurus has the long, flat, stiff but floppy spring design. Others have traditional round springs that seem to compress more easily on the rod.
The flat spring also is super sharp at each end where is was cut.
