Default Reposting AK Help

I for some reason took the mag release off on my AK. I can't seen to get the spring back in the right position to put it back. Do any of you know how to do that? I am getting very frustrated

Look it up on youtube. EVERYTHING is on youtube. My AK fell apart while I was taking it apart by accident (my stoopid mistake) and there was a complete youtube video on what I was doing wrong. Try that.

You need to compress the spring in a vise and secure it with a small zip tie. Then you can reassemble the release and use a screwdriver heated with a propane torch to melt the zip tie and then pull it out.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
