I assembled a midlength upper on a Century lower, and the rear takedown pin is kinda loose..........not loose in that it falls out, but it's a little easier to push out than my Eagle Arms rifle and wiggles a bit, and the spring seems a little loose..........would you recommend replacing the spring? The spring is new........any suggestions?

I seem to remember someone making an oversized pin to tighten up a loose lower. I can't remember who had it. Maybe someone will chime in.

Is it an undersized pin or oversizes pin hole causing it to be loose?

The takedown pin in my Bushy lower/LMT upper is a little looser than most. An Accuwedge will tighten it up for you though.

A bit pricey but this will fill the bill
