I assume you mean "get another" spring and not "get another " gun. Right?

I thoroughly cleaned and examined the gun (sorry, didn't think to take pics) and found no damage to rails or anything else. I took it to the range yesterday and once again it runs perfectly. Thanks for the replies.

And I'm glad it was a simple fix.

Not much gets by utf59.

I had the pleasure to shoot with him a wile back. Here's the read, you may find it entertaining.

Another FTF meet and shoot.

just noticed UTF, You and me are neighbors, just on opposite ends of the Buckman Bridge. You don't happen to shoot at GRP do you?
