I've broken my fourth main spring, this time on my XS46U (which I really love).

I believe it broke because the screw holding the scope stop which I think is installed at the factory is a little too long by about 1mm and impinges on the inside of the receiver damaging the spring. It has a very rough end.

I broke about 1 1/2 coils off the back, and then today, probably from stress of the coils being broken, another 9 coils broke off the front of the spring and the sound of the gun changed.

The gun shot just fine (don't know about fps because my son-in-law has borrowed my Chrony) but it started to bind when cocking. I took it apart and found the damage.

I suggest you check the screw and grind the end smooth.

Peter :D
