I just ordered part #23 for my M17 last sunday. I got it in and was surprised to find 2 little springs that look nothing like what i ordered. Ive looked it over and im sure it was a mixup and im wondering if i have to pay shipping back and wait another week for the real parts to come in? ill post a picture of my recipt and the parts. They say 02-023 so im not sure what the 02 stands for.

Those are the cylinder return springs.  Typically when installed they will need to be stretched slightly at  the center.  It's all good!

I thought these were cylinder return springs. nice and large. those are extremly tiny and they dont fit.

Trust me, that's them.  You need to stretch them slightly at the center and when installing them be sure to super glue them on the attachment points.  Have a look at the MP9 tear down guide for a look at what the springs should look like properly stretched.

Post number two has a lot of pics but one have the return springs in it.  The idea is the same with the m17.
