:( SHot me new Model 60 at the range yesterday. Not crazy about the trigger but everything else was great. Broke the gun down and cleaned it. Upon reassembly I bent the recoil spring. UGH! Will have to order a new one tomorrow. Is the a trick to getting it back in?

Push the bolt over the recoil spring and the guide rod with the guide rod in place, then drop the front of the bolt down into the receiver. It might take a little practice but its pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

Many have bent the spring. I have successfully strightend the spring using needlenose and care. Get it mostly stright and then thread it on the guide. Just fool with it until you can get it back together. Careful not to nick the spring with the pliers. I had to do this when the springs were on backorder, it cycled just fine (200-300) rounds until the new springs came in. I keep a couple of spares around.
Welcome to the club, don't stop trying.
