If it's anything like an AK-47, it goes inside the receiver. It's used to hold the fire control group parts together (hammer, trigger, sear, dis-connector, etc.)...

Here is a decent video giving you the basic idea (on an AK)... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXjebSTAAPM

Are you talking about the spring that has a coil of wire at one end. That one wont work. Use the redstar plate retainer, AKbuilder is your friend.

I modified a spare Krebs AK retainer plate for my PSL. That wire thing was a PITA.

Like everyone else said, ditch the wire and get a retainer plate from RedStar.

Quick FYI, odds are you might have to do a little dremel work to get it to fit properly, but don't panic, it's a VERY small amount if you need to do it at all.

If you're super desperate and don't want to wait you could try the old C-clip trick.

In the original configuration that spring retained the fcg pins. Since your receiver doesn't have the third hole it has nothing to ride on now.

psl has a 2nd safety sear that the batf does not allow so on the US receivers it's not used
