Question G6R - broken poppet spring

Has anyone encountered a broken G6R poppet spring? Took the marker apart to do a full cleaning, and the poppet spring was broken. Does anyone know what would cause this? Has this happened before to anyone? I tried searching, but couldn't find anything.

Never heard of this but it's likely an isolated incident. Call up BLAST and let them know the issue and see what they say.

And it likely happened because the poppit spring wasn't seated properly for anyone else who is wondering.

I would also bet that as the probable cause.
