    spring replacement in the bolt

    anyone know if its possible and where to get a spring from?
    the one i have doesn't want to play ball with 18500 batteries, almost as though it needs stretching out a bit to allow contact

    A few of the mod springs are interchangable. I know with the first Vamo's the springs were crap so people put bolt springs in them (I think), would be worth checking and getting a vamo spring for it, you can buy them as a seperate item.

    Stretching the spring a little wouldnt hurt it either.

    I have personal preferences to not stretch springs.

    The spring I had in my bolt was fairly big. You sure you haven't had a short?
    Move along!!! Nothing to see here.
