I love the gun...love the ease of takedown. Putting it back together has been a challenge when it comes to getting the spring back in. I'm olde - 69 - but not weak. Have managed the spring before but after a day at the range yesterday, and cleaning her up, got stuck with the spring. Lacked just a hair for it to drop into place. Wanted to cut a bit off but resisted. Walked away a while. Watched some how to videos on you tube. Came back and pressed and wiggled...used the base of a fork for purchase on the push. Got lucky and it popped in.

Any suggestions other than brute force and wiggling appreciated...

I have discovered the solution to your problem. If it doesn't go easily, remove the guide rod and spring and rotate the spring 15 to 20 degrees on the guide rod and try again. If that doesn't work repeat until it slips right in.
