Thanks to the kind folks on this board I've got lots of info and the parts needed to convert my 21 Colt into a shooter using 1928 parts. The spring I received came in a bag marked new old stock (although I bought it as used) but the ends of the spring were bend inward on both ends. The spring is the right length, # of coils etc. for a new spring but it won't fit over the pilot stem unless I unbend the end, or force it and scratch the stem. Anyone know why the spring is like this (see pic)? The provider has offered to replace it but looks like a simple fix.
Also, I believe I was told or read I should replace the original ejector due to it's rarity -- any comment?
