tilted Rhino spring

So I wasn't too careful the first time I pulled the spring off of my bolt guide (spring that came with Eigenbolt) and I seem to have bent the spring slightly. So now when I put the spring back on the guide, the top (end that goes into bolt) is off-center and gently rests on the side of the guide. The gun still shoots perfectly fine, but is it something that could cause excessive wear and I should fix?

they don't cost much. just pick up another from Rhino. spares are always good since they're so cheap.

I wouldn't think it could hurt anything unless it was really bent bad. It's gonna be up in the bolt and it's going to be compressed down a little anyway. But they are pretty cheap and it's good to have a back up.

if it ends up getting bound in there and you pull it out it can take some force. that will cause the spring to unwind and either be too long or widen the coils making it unable to fit in your bolt.

Alright, thanks guys. There wasn't any binding and the bolt still fit perfectly over the spring, but just to be safe, I carefully bent the spring back into shape.

The springs are very durable. Although bending them would take quite a bit of force. Glad you got it back in shape. I'll have more available if you need them.

Thanks. Yeah, I had to really pull at it to bend it back.
