Well i'm the new guy here, hello all! After completely stripping my xdm, prior to reading the the very important piece about "not" taking the mag release completely out i'm watching my hair turn gray as I fight to put this back together. I know it's a pita any way you look at it but i'm actually having trouble figuring out how the spring actually goes back in. I have done it 200 different ways and nothing seems to work! What is the orientation of this spring? Pics would be worth a million bucks! I have searched and read back almost a years worth of threads and cant seem to find anything that helps me out. Please and thanks in advance. I now know to never pull this thing off again!!!!!
