can you explain better. what exactly are you having trouble with

It's the spring bar that also part of the shell ejector, it's the bar that keeps the shells in the mag. It had spring tension by a leaf spring held onto the reciever by a single screw right above the trigger mech.

I wouldnt remove it.. Looking at my Mosin, it seems to me if you remove the shell retaining spring that it would no longer hold or eject shells...
You just gotta be tough with the Mosin... :p
