A TM spring guide should only run maybe $5 and a metal one WITH ball bearings should only run you about $25-35 tops. If the prices you posted are accurate your getting fucked over big time. The person responsible for selling you those items should be ashamed of himself. There is no way in hell that you should have to pay for a part this individual broke. You know what, I'd like to know who this person is.
Few individuals would view themselves as barbarous, no, instead they view themselves in a different light, a distorted reality that justifies who they are and what they have done.
