    Les Baer 10mm recoil spring is a pain to re install. It is a new gun and I expected it to be a little rough but I've put 500 rounds through it and after cleaning it is the last part of re assembly and it took me about 1/2 hour to get it in place and the barrel bushing rotated around.. The bushing wrench and my thumb holding the recoil spring and plug at the same time is the issue. I'm hopping the barrel bushing will loosen up enough to turn it by hand so i won't need the wrench. Any one familiar with this? Have any info to offer?
