    There are some folks on this forum I pay close attention to because they REALLY seem to know their stuff. If I express concern over some aspect of a gun and they tell me it's nothing to be concerned about, I take it at face value and I stop worrying about it unless something comes up to make me change my mind. One of those people is RICHGCOOP. That guy has forgotten more about pistol innards than I'll ever know. If he says bent springs aren't a cause for concern because guide rods allow them to perform properly, I'm going to stop worrying about them. YMMV.

    About 200 rounds and I notice a slight bend in the large LCP II spring. No Biggie.
