Was shooting my LP10 in league last night. Noticed a little spring coming from the top of the bolt. Not normal. Before I do something terrible and break out my gun plumber tools, I thought I'd ask here. What the heck it this, what caused it and how do I make it right?

I don't know the LP10 that well but it looks like a bit of the stabilizer catch is missing, allowing the spring to stick out.

Have you tried looking at the drawing and parts list on the Steyr web site?

I'm guessing that parts 61 & 65 (and possibly 66) are missing and that you are looking at part 68.

No, wrong side of the Atlantic. Maybe one year.

Thanks for the Illustration exactly what I needed. I think the catch lever (61) is still there. The pin (65) is still there, It appears as if the spring (68) just worked it's way under the edge of the catch lever and started backing itself out.

I'm guessing cure is (hold so no escaped parts), knock the pin out, remove catch lever, flip spring over or bend bitter end so it is not encouraged to work it's way out. Check catch lever for broken or bent, reassemble.

I don't understand what it is doing. The spring pushes against catch so that....?

Is this a common failure?
Should I just replace the bolt assembly?
Send it to my favorite pellet shoot'n fixers in TN and let their gun plumber at it?

you should replace the spring after carefully removing the pin and the small lever. it is propably broken to 2 pieces. without the correct length and strength of that little spring the black lever that catches the moving mass (absorber) will not work properly. this could either lead to unpredictable feeling from shot to shot or a jam of the bolt in its rearmost position. this happened to a fellow shooters LP10 that the spring was damaged and only half of it remained. you could send it to our host Pilk or you could get from them the spring if you are the DIY guy.

I see a broken piece (it's encircled in red and looks like part nÂș 61, catch lever) in your pic.

This happened to me about a year ago. 6 year old LP10, probably 15000 shots fired.

Spring broke near the end, the exposed pointy part made its way up and became visible. Got a new spring, watched the video, fixed in no time!

Someone spent a lot of time making quality video on Youtube for the LP10. Thanks.

If I was in the market for a new air pistol, I'd seriously consider buying a Steyr just because of the excellent support they provide with these videos.

Well in my wonderful town of East Podunk Hollar, There is not a small enough pin punch to be had. 1/16th is as small as you can get locally. I've ordered some watch band repair pin punches which come much smaller. 0.8, 0.9, and 1.0 mm

I usually take mini nail for such purposes. But file (cut) the peak before use :-)

I think I just hammered the smallest unbrako/hex tool (incl. with the LP10) into the pin to release it.
