Hello - sorry for the newb question here but I was working on a spring change for my KWA SR7 and I lost control of the spring.  It kind of popped out and when I looked back at the cylinder and cylinder head, they had come apart.  I know the cylinder head and cylinder are not one piece but on my SR10 they do not come apart, it's almost as if they are glued (on the SR10 that is).

So my question is: are the cylinder and cylinder head supposed to come apart?  If not, how to do I secure them together?  (nothing appears to be broken).

If they are designed to come apart, do I just insert the cylinder head into cylinder with it just kind of floating around?  It fits in fairly snugly for a good seal but I'm just worried that it will come loose - I mean, I could push it from the front all the way through if I wanted.

Anyway, I appreciate the help. Thanks!

Hello Gavilan,
The cylinder head and cylinder are designed to come apart when needed. The cylinder head is held into the cylinder by an o-ring that is seated onto the cylinder head.

Also: The Cylinder Head is stabilized in the gearbox Shells by the posts that insert into the ports on each side of the Cylinder Head. Make sure when you reinstall the Cylinder Head into the Cylinder, that the flat part of the face of the Cylinder Head is flush with the Cylinder.
