I hate doing disassembly in a big 1gal ZipLoc bag, but it seems about the only way to avoid Carpet-Spring Syndrome. Otherwise, it's far too "catching."

Condolences. We've all been there. In fact, I'm about to fiddle with the bolt and firing pin assembly on a rifle, to replace a couple of parts; hoping I don't eject springs all over. Now, where are those ZipLoc bags ...

Many thanks! I could leave it out, yes. But then i have a bubba'd firearm. Taurus, if they would send it to me, would take who knows how long. I ordered the one from the site you linked, (it is a pt111 g2) , maybe I'll hit up Taurus and see if i can get a spare.
