Bolt spring and Etek3

Hi guys,

I did originally post this in the Etek forum, but it's not very active there and I really need an answer. I just got an Etek3 a week or so ago and am brand new to electronic markers (and really paintball in general)

My question is cleaning it and lubing it up for the first time last night, a spring from the bolt popped out and I have no idea where it came from! It still fired, but I assume it has to be somewhat important. Even looking in the parts part in the book I couldn't find any information on it. Where does this little bugger go?

Is it a fairly small spring?

Yup. Small. I'd say half an inch, a little smaller.

It goes inside your bolt in the back there's a little nipple that holds your pin in place the spring goes behind that

so that spring is what sits behind the little retaining bearing that makes sure that your bolt pin stays in place, which holds your bolt in line in the breech and connected to the firing assembly.
Just hit up P.E., if they don't send a free spare, you can just grab one for dirt cheap.

that said, you should never ever have to go that far into your bolt (or, well, take it apart at all) unless you're changing the bolt in your gun and need to keep the pin.

For maintenance, that should never ever be touched.

All I did was pull the bolt to lube it. The spring came out.

EDIT: I got it. Thanks for the help guys! Especially yodainspandex!
