    I have the Action Army spring guide for my VSR 10. I had some problems cocking the bolt back and having it click. There was no way this was my 1 month-old Zero trigger causing the problem, so I opened the gun up and found the back part of the spring guide loose (it screw off). Is it okay to epoxy the threads attaching to the back of the spring guide?

    Is it one like this (has a bearing)?

    Or one like this (no bearing)?

    I would say if it is one with the bearing you could, but you will have to first make sure that by doing that your not wrecking the bearing, because the bearing helps to allow your spring to move easily is it were to "twist" somewhat.

    And is it isn't a guide with a bearing, I would say go for it.

    I wouldn't go as far as epoxying the threads. I think some medium strength thread lock should suffice, in case you ever get a smaller diameter spring, you can swap out the spring guide without having to change bases. Though I don't know if they make different spring diameters for vsr-10s. I know for sure they do that for the APS2s

    Alright, looks like I'll go buy some loctite thread lock.
