Beastmode, I went about this in a scientific manner. Based on the exceptional disassembled photo posted by Jpyle, the only round spring in the entire parts kit is the guide rod spring. I am unable to tell the exact size of your small piece of spring, but it is either broken off the end of the original guide rod spring, or it a secondary buffer spring that sits inside of the primary guide rod spring. It is rare to see them snap completely off, but it has happened!

I believe MisterMcCool might be right that the washer is to protect the end of the guide rod from spring dig/damage.

The circular part, if it's a ring then it looks like the part that fits on the guide rod, before you install the suide rod spring.

The small spring looks like it's may be part of the mag catch, but you would have to be doing a complete dis-assembly to need to remove that.

Default Help! I cant figure out what part this is

Well my dad shot it today, said it jammed a few times and to release the mag the hammer had to be back? This is weird. I put the washer on the guide rod but I have no clue where that spring goes.
