    I second that. Let our errors be others caution.

    That Bic pencil spring worked perfectly without me cutting any coils off or stretching it. No mods whatsoever. Getting the spring out of the pencil was the hardest part.

    I had seen the video on the 522 before I got mine so I always paid attention to the spring. So far it has not fallen out once, but I will probably keep a couple of those bic’s around just for good measure. Thanks for figuring out such an easy to source replacement!

    So this spring will pop out of the gun during the recommended disassembly for cleaning?
    I just did that and don't recall seeing a spring. I'll check out the video.

    Yes, they work. There is a little play in the front one but do snt effect function.

    That dumb spring. I will suggest that as soon as you pull the bolt grab that spring and put it in a safe place. It always falls out when ya don’t notice

    My spring popped out as well. I almost lost it. looked everywhere. Finally found in inside the gun stuck to the side. Was a very happy moment. My son was looking at me like whys dad going so nuts lol. I think im gonna put a lil piece of black electrical tape over it so it doesn't go missing again. hope that helps me. Good to hear about the bic tho if it does go missing.

    I'm in the same dilemma, except mine must have popped out after about 100 rds at the range. Slide locked back, wouldn't charge. Had to use a small tool to push the lever down while holding the bolt back to get it to go forward. No doubt it fell out of the mag well and ended up on the floor.


    UPDATE: By sheer luck, we had a bic mech pencil. Did as you guys said, works like a charm !!! Thanks all !
