    spring and guide failure can be caused by many factors.

    Oiling diretly into the piston chamber and dieselling is sure to cause serious damage.
    Dry firing a springer is also very bad for it.
    The use of heavy pellets [over9grains] is also discouraged and can cause premature spring failures.

    How many pellets did you put through your rifle?
    What kind of pellets?
    Did you dry fire it often and how did you lube it?
