    Hey guys, my charging handle spring on my Mk12 mod.1 has stretched out way too much and now the charging handle will not come in all the way. The spring is so stretched out that it looks arched. I'm wondering if there's any technique I can use to make the spring tighter or if I should just try to find a replacement. Here are some pictures:

    I would probably just buy a replacement charging handle spring, there are probably ways to fix it; but I am not sure.

    You could cut down the spring and the bend the final spring coil outward so it is perpendicular with the rest of the coils. You can then use that coil to tighten it into place with the screw holding it in. To be honest it would probably be easier to just get a new one. They are very inexpensive.
