mini poppet spring

after cleaning and lubing my newly acquired used mini, i either lost the poppet spring or just have version 1 or the previous owner lost it. after checking the sticky i still have a couple questions. anyway, what type of performance issues can i look out for? and could i put a replacement spring in even if it is only version one?
Just remember the player makes the marker, not the other way around

You will need the poppet spring. If you lost it, you can order another one here (part #79).

depends on the version of your poppet... V1 did NOT use a spring. Look at your poppet sealing face. The Version 1 was brass with just the sealing tip face itself being nylon
The V2 or V3 the entire sealing tip is nylon and both use a spring.

I forgot to put my spring back in my Axe and it fired fine as far as I could see. But it was only dry firing.

I have v1 and v3 mini, the v1 has no rear poppet spring. The v3 does have a poppet spring.

If ur a christian paintballer put this in ur profile, dont be afraid, be proud u are brave enough to have FAITH, and show it.

I believe the poppet spring was to prevent having to reset the poppet. The spring keeps the poppet sealed. I would imagine it isn't totally necessary on a v3 (just manually reset the poppet) but is nice part to have when you need it.
