My friend bought one and spray painted it black, fired about 50 BB's at some cans, when the retention pin for the spring broke. the pin is about half the thickness of a paper clip, so he drills a hole, and inserts part of an actual paper clip into the spring mechanism.

Still works to this day.
That tells all about quality, when a Paper Clip outperforms a factory part, doesnt it?
Just on that information, I would not even think of thinking of having a delusion about those guns.
The spring flew of my SP-M203 years back and I replaced it with the 1 cent spring from a pen, worked better overall and held the tube more snuggly in than the factory spring did. The origional part wasn't so great, but sometimes things happen and aftermarket ingenuity makes something better. Does that mean that the original product was bad, no.. it just means it could be better with a bit of thinking.

I'm not defending crossman, but I think that your logic is very skewed sometimes.
