Changing XM15 Return spring
 
Hello fellas,

How in the world do you change the return spring on the XM15 pump kit? I cannot separate the thing for the life of me, and I'd like to replace it with an uncut spring.

if i remember correctly you unscrew the bolt down the front of the pump handle...

Bolt?

I don't think mine has a bolt. It is completely flat on the front.

Is it full of something? Pics?

Looks like the main guide threads into the mounting block. A steel rod that fits through the cross hole would be used to turn it, being on the lookout for loctite. An allen wrench would work, but will probably make a burr that you will have to sand down. You could wrap an allen with a few layers of electrical tape and try that, but back off if you think it will deform the hole. You might have a round screw driver shaft that is the right size.
