Unertl spring installation

In the for sale section of this site there are return  springs for Unertl scopes for sale. I have an Unertl without a spring but have always assumed if I got a spring I'd have to disassemble the scope to put it on. Is this true? If I would have to disassemble (and hopefully reassemble) the scope is the job within the skills of mortals?

You can do it but you must be very careful. Unscrew the ocular eye piece and remove it. Now your reticle is unprotected and can be broken very easily. Remove the two screws that permit you to level the reticle. Carefully slide the ring off. Now back off your elevation and windage knobs to minimize the pressure on you tube. I generally capture the spring plunger with a ribbon or strip of clothe and slide the rear mount off. Now you can slide the recoil assembly on being careful not to touch the reticle. Then re-assemble the mount, the leveling ring and the eyepiece.
