    Default P30sks recoil spring assembly question

    Just added a very lightly used P30sks to my small but growing H&K family (USP Tactical 45, VP9, VP9sk). Upon cleaning I noticed the recoil spring doesn't stay captured as I believe it's supposed to be. So I just want make sure I'm correct that this isn't the way it's supposed to be before I go order a new assembly. Thanks in advance!

    Normally it stays captive against the rod end/stop, but it's not unusual for it to come off either. Just compress the spring back to rest on the stop.

    There are plenty of threads about the recoil spring getting loose when disassembling and what not on here. You can find them if you use the Search function.

    HK will replace it if you call them, last I heard.

    Thanks guys. I did try a quick search...guess I need better search terms.

    In related news to future readers: If you compress the spring too much it prevents the slide from moving back far enough to get to the slide disassembly position (second notch). It goes past the slide lock notch but won't go all the way back. Pulling the end of the spring away from the rod but still close enough that it doesn't easily come off the guide rod seems to work fine.
