Switched the two and my accuracy and no breaking paint issues were fixed. My only complaint with the spacer is when it comes off when cleaning it.
Stock spring for sure...the softer spring probably wasnt moving the bolt back enough and was probably chopping balls.
As far as the spacer thing, it should be fairly snug (but not feel stuck). Should come off with easy force, but not enough to just slide off. On mine, I removed any grease from the oring that sits beneath the spacer part and or, use the proper sized oring under there. Its been a while since I installed my Lurker, but it might have come with a different size oring so the spacer remains a little bit tighter to prevent it from sliding around.
