    Default Recoil Spring

    So,

    I just picked up my PTR9ct from my local shop who did my SBR engraving. I noticed that they had left the bolt in the locked back position. It had been sitting at the shop for about a week before I picked it up, so I can only assume that it had been locked back for about that length of time.

    Sorry if this is a pretty stupid question, but will leaving the bolt locked back for any extended period of time cause extra wear/tear on the recoil spring?

    No. It’s the amount of cycles not the amount of time compressed

    This is correct same idea that’s applied to magazine springs as well.

    You're fine no worries about that bolt spring being compressed/locked back, maybe if it was like 20 years but I bet it would still work 100%.

    Thanks for the replies! I figured it should probably be fine, just wanted to make sure. I always keep my bolt forward when stored..
