Default A question about extractor springs.

I was cleaning the bolt and extractor the other day and the spring came loose and I put it back in but I am wondering if that is normal or should I worry about getting a new extractor spring?

its normal for some to be looser than others. only real fix would be to replace the extractor and spring. the extraor retaining pin will keep it all together under pressure. if it doesnt then you need a new spring for sure.
