I took the firing pin out to polish up the bolt. As I dropped out the spring, I noticed that one end is tapered. I was not careful enough and I don't know if the tapered end goes towards the bolt or towards the firing pin.

Which was does the tapered end go?

Thanks

Found the solution on Youtube

The tapered end of the spring faces the rear (against the firing pin). Or looking at it the opposite way, the larger square end presses against the bolt.

I was lookin at youtubes also.

Some the aftermarket springs have no taper.
