You can bend the spring to gain some snap too, just make sure you bend it just forward of the center pin hole, and not too much, a little goes a long way. You may have to re-grind the back a bit because the geometry might be thrown off, but it saves you the trouble of welding and grinding the spring. Trace the outline of the spring on some paper so you can gauge how much you're bending it.
