Possibly it was broken when he received the gun and he just found it when he cleaned it the first time.

My new 9mm 2.0 compact recoil spring broke on round 44, but worked weakly until round 47 when it wouldn't return fully to battery. I disassemble the gun and found the recoil spring broken in the middle. Gun out of action.

I called Smith customer service and they had a new one to me in a week.

I cannot imagine that the broken spring was the OPs fault in any way. It likely came to him broken. Really, what could he have done to break a recoil spring just by cleaning?

I'm guessing this was a defective spring from the get-go. As was mine. Properly made recoil springs don't break when new.
