Advise remington 700 mark x trigger issue

I took my rifle to local gunsmith to do some work on it. Started off with a remington 700 .308 sps varmit 26" heavy barrel...

cut barrel down
threaded barrel
installed muzzle break
installed badger ordanecce scope mount
* adjust trigger pull

He called and said my rifle was ready but that my trigger spring was bent, from factory. Has anyone ran into this issue? And maybe someone can derect me to a website where i can find a replacement spring?

Any help would be apprecitated!!

I have not seen nor heard of that problem the the X-Mark trigger, I would contact Remington. Their customer service is very good and the one time I contacted them they sent me the part I needed free of charge, even though I told them it was my fault it broke.

With all the work done on your rifle, you could replace the factory trigger with a Timney as it is a much better trigger.

I put a Timney in mine.... Very nice, clean break. If you do put a Timney in, you may have to remove a little metal in the receiver. The Timney has a little bump in it, for the safety, IIRC...
