1 Should the piston be allowed to move back before it hits the spring, or should they be in contact when at rest?

2 Should the spring be mounted in the piston? My piston will be solid delrin rod

3 How would I mount the spring in the gun? I was thinking about using a 3 to 1 bushing and mounting three springs in it. Would this be secure enough if it was glued in, or should it be reinforced with some screws?
