He explained to me how the spring is not needed and that the whole spring in the gas system started years ago with the Beretta 303 and 390 designs.
I know how well his sure cycle systems work so I see no reason why this will not work very well too........Cost is $35 plus shipping so like $47 total.

My gun ran fine while shooting it with the heavy spring installed but when I'd toss a shell into the action and release the bolt it would try to close faster than the shell could be hoisted up to the chamber and it would jam up. I installed the lighter spring and now it works just like it should. The directions said that there was no danger in using the lighter spring with magnum loads so that's the one I'm gonna leave in there. Later on I may try either removing a coil or two out of the heavy spring to see if I can make it work.
