Okay Guys, have been reading here a lot the last couple of years, but never needed to post much; as the search button has always been my friend and I enjoy reading more than posting. Until now... I purchased a Stag Model One at the end of this past summer. Today I decided to change out the grip. When removing the grip, a slender 1" spring fell out onto the work bench as I pulled the grip off. I did not recognize it so I immediatly checked the parts manual and could not identify what this spring was for. Here is where my ingonarance comes in... After inspecting, I mistakenly deduced that it was a tensioner spring for the screw that I took out to remove the grip. I put the spring in the hole and attached the grip. This was a mistake. After checking for an empty chamber I attempted to move the safety and it would not move. I then took of the grip and saw that the spring was "mangeled" in the safety lever. Before I contacted Stag to show my stupidity, I thought I would show you guys first. Any ideas what this spring was for? Thanks for you assistance.
