I think what you are looking for is called a shepards hook. I personally like retainer plates better.

you can also use a "e" clip to retain the hammer pin and trigger pin.

thanks, a e-clip sounds like a perfect idea! i take it the spring has no other function?

basically i got the wasr ak-47 as a box of parts from my dad who said he lost a spring but dosent know which one. now i have a direction for the missing spring , which i assume held the pin in place. i seem to have everything else to make the rifle functional.

attached is a pic of what i thought was the proper spring . can someone identify it for me? instructions are no good and i cant seem to find a thread with specific part pictures. im now thinking its for the bolt catch lever??? photobucket is screwing with me so this attachment is the best i can do.

thanks for any help . im more familiar with the sks and ar platforms . kinda liking the functionality of the ak.i might be looking at one now, are the wasr's good or would a saiga be better?

That looks like another version of a shepards crook replacement that is a pain to install. http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&s...r:11,s:0,i:119 the plate is just another replacement of the shepards crook

No spring for the lever. If you do a google search for ak fire control group you will find different pic views of the layout with and without select fire parts, and shepards crook. I wouldn't go with the e-clips because they are small and easily lost, hard to install, and take off. The plate is held in place with the safety lever and eliminates having to use a tool to take it apart and put together.

I use one of these... It's cheap, easy, works and because of its size is much easier to install and remove if needed... Also harder to lose.

As another member posted, I also have one of these; http://ak-builder.com/index.php?disp...oduct_id=29836

I used it before buying the Tapco. I think they honestly both work just as well, but the Tapco has the advantage because of its size.

i tried every which way to get the spring i have the pic of to fit. but its dosent seem to be for the pins. my dad was adamant he lost a spring and i just want to make sure this spring isnt for anything else.
i ordered the pin retainer plate and for the meantime i have e-clips in there. everything seems to function fine but i havent test fired it yet. so im at a loss with the spring i have pictured.

are there any indoor ranges around north oc area where i can test fire a 7.62x39? i dont want to go all the way out to my desert range to find out it dosent function correctly.i want to make sure its a semi reliable gun before i give it back to my dad.
thanks for all the help

Yes, On Target, but you have to take their rifle class on Sunday morning for 1 hour. If you do, sign up for a lane before you take the class. They only have 3 rifle lanes I think. They let you shoot steel case and steel core.

Field Time has a great indoor range too, but I believe they only allow brass. Call to verify.
