Member Dan's SIGs reported that some of the "lighter blue" springs were wound around too small of a mandrel.Wow, what excellent information here!
Yes, the spring looks like it's binding on the rod and it's hard to separate from the rod.
I ordered a grayguns guide rod, the stainless one. For laughs, I got a Sprinco guide rod as well and will try to polish my stock guide rod.
Ordered some Wolff 17lb springs, but I'll order the flat springs from Midway as well and see which one works.
Finally, I'll contact Sig and see if they will send me another spring.

The Painted "end" only should be tight to the rod, the "reason" it goes against the Guide Rod's flange. The coils should move freely over the rod itself.
