Broken Smith & Wesson 22a Firing Pin Spring

The last few spirals of my Smith & Wesson 22a pistol firing pin spring broke off. It's easy to replace it with a new one.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Broken Firing Pin Spring

The end rung of the spring broke off. I believe it will still work in this condition so I reinstalled it into my pistol until the new replacement spring arrives.

Kenn,
Thanks. I appreciate it. Best regards,
Tanner

Follow-Up: I received the firing pin a few days later (very quick response from the Smith & Wesson Customer Service department). I took a picture comparing the old spring with the new one.

Comparison of a used Smith & Wesson firing pin spring with a brand new one. The used one is noticeably shorter.
