So, I have been trying to fix this for a while but it keeps coming back,

the lowerhand guard on my Romy AK keeps coming loose after a couple of rounds, It seems that the little lever that holds it in place is either not engaging right or is not staying locked and will unlock it self after a couple of rounds.

I taught I had already, after I putting a lot of loctite on it, but yesterday I only shot 10 rounds with it all day and it was loose already.

anybody know any tricks on how to fix this issue?

thanks

Did you install the metal HG retainer spring? It's installed on the front of the HG where it locks into the HG retainer to give it a little tension to prevent the HG retainer lever from "walking".

I just took at it and one side is broken, so I brought the other as much as I could and it seems to be tight right now,
might end up doing something like this if it doesnt stay
