If tht spring is broken, likley it's at the base where there is a simple 90deg bend in it. If so, removing the broken peice and putting another bend with pliers in the spring, reinserting it should get it back running again. I've fixed a couple hi caps in the past that had this issue, was pretty easy to do.
If i do go ahead with disassembling the mag it apeares to be glued together im praying its not chem welded together that would be worst case would i just pry the mag apart and hope that all the internals stay in the same spot or do you have any tricks im still waiting on the retailer i contacted to see if i can get it exchanged as i said only aprox 50 rounds have even gone through the gun since i got it brand new. so takeing it apart right now would be my very last option but having some info would be nice or just a little trick you learned to make things go faster

Thanks Kevin
