I bought one of those WASR-10s and I have an issue. The mag release pin came out. I can't get it back on properly. I am having the problem of getting the spring to compress and put in its place.

What is the best way to fix it?

Have you tried putting the rifle in a padded vise? That'll free up 1 hand so you have 2 hands free to compress the spring. It shouldn't be that hard to do. You may have to use a toothpick to ride where the pin goes and then change over once you get it on the firearm.

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!
