Make sure there is no debris in the hole...

back the buffer nut all the way,
screw in your tube till it retains the buffer retainer
turn the tube till the plate is off to the side closest to hole
drop in the pin,
drop in the detent,
drop in the spring,
turn the tube a bit
push the plate down
then tighten your nut while watching the spring

hope that helps

im in san diego... mira mesa to be exact. i googled and found a guy who tapped his to make it easier to fit on arfcom. he had to cut a few coils off the spring and used some size 40 allen heads. might try home depot tomorrow if i can find springs locally.
