Spring help

I got the WC complete spring kit to replace a couple of springs I lost after a full disassembly. The firing pin block plunger spring is to long in the kit. It is almost twice the length of plunger itself. Can I cut it down without any adverse effects? If I can anybody know how long it is over all? Thanks for your help guys.

Are you refering to the firing pin spring or the spring under the little dumbell plunger in the series 80 parts?

Call Taurus and they will send you every spring that your missing within a 5 day period, if the spring from Wilson is to long and it will fit correctly into the block hole you should be able to cut a couple coils from it no big deal.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

I lost my plunger spring on my Taurus once and had to use a ball piont pen spring to fix it. The pen spring worked great never had an issue with it. I just cut the spring to the length I needed. About 3 months latter I was working on another gun and came across that spring and put it back in. Lucky never thought I would see it again. Good Luck on you're spring issue but I agree Taurus will probably just send you one.
