I found this spring on the floor of the bathroom.I changed the recoil springs in my two PCII and field cleaned GiGi's Ultra in the dining room.I thought it may have come out of one of the three and even got online and looked at each of the guns parts illustrations.I couldn't find this spring on any of them but it's driving me nuts wondering what it belongs to.Even with the ice and snow in StLou today,I 4-wheeled it up to the range and we shot all 3 without any problems.Has anybody seen this spring in a PCII or an Ultra TLE???

Jeff, off hand I don't recognize it, could you take another picture of it next to a ruler so we can get an idea of it's size?

Well the new picture gives me a little better idea of it's size but I'm still at a loss on identifying it.

Since you found it in the bathroom, perhaps it's not from a gun.

The same here.I can't figure out how a spring would stay on my clothing then make it 25 feet to the bathroom.Like I said,the 3 guns work fine but just really making me go nuts trying to figure out where it belongs.

It's not from your 1911s thank God. Maybe it came in in your boot treads. Any leaks in your bathroom? Haha I m no plumber. Or comedian.

I didn't want to come right out and suggest that. I was trying to be polite!

Now that you mention it, it could be from one of her hair thingies, some of them are spring loaded.

Just checked all of them and none missing.I give up.They probably aren't from the guns since they shoot and I was very careful when I took them apart.Something will come up with a missing spring.Thanks guys..

Jeff this is by far the funniest post I've ever read. now my wife is screaming at me for spitting coffee all over the place. but on a serious note I do hope you find out where the spring came from.

I want to thank all of you for the visions I am now having. As they are coming at me from several different directions, I'm not really sure what I'm seeing. But I'm convinced everyone of you enjoyed it! :)

:D:DYou didn't step on the bathroom scales did you?
Not a chance.I was 6'3 220 lbs when I met GiGi 3 years ago and after MANY Mexican meals later,I'm sure I've added another 20.I'm sure I would lose a few from her chasing me around the house if she read this thread...:eek:
