“JohnL57”Thanks for the replies!
I think the R9 is a really good balance of power to weight. I find it hefty enough for good offhand shooting but not too heavy to carry on a hunt.
After 4 years and about 5000 shots, I needed to rebuild, so I put in a Vortek kit. The mainspring looked like this when I tore it down,

 


I have never seen a mainspring shatter like that before. Were you experiencing any dieseling?
