I will swap-out the recoil spring when the spring kit gets here as a matter of course. Inasmuch as I have had this Carbine for over twenty years, I have cleaned the gas system upon occasion. I have a gas piston wrench, although it is generally not considered to be a good idea to routinely remove it due to its staking.

This is a "fun gun"...only shot occasionally as opposed to being frequently used for hunting or as a defense weapon...spends most of its life sitting in my gun closet.
