    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.
