Kinda strange occurance, is the last loop of the latch spring larger in diamiter than the rest of the spring ? Mine was a &@*)#^%)*^!bitch to remove the one time I did it.

Sounds very typical Jay.

The frame latch spring is tapered and the end is supposed to be large enough to bind in the hole and retain it. The end against the frame latch itself is supposed to be small enough to capture the barb on the end of the latch.

The front sight is retained with epoxy glue.

Congrats and enjoy!
