    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.
