Hi,
I’d watch the MCarbo install video first to install this stainless end piece for charging handle spring. To compress spring, saw a 2”x4” about 6-7” long to make a spring jig. Turn the short 2x4 on its end and drill a 3/8” hole in the end 3” deep. Then you can put this jig in your bench vise to compress one end, holding it compressed with the tiny Allen wrench, as video shows on MCarbo. It would be very good to have an extra pair of hands to push the Allen wrench thru to hold compression. Do this horizontally so other pin inside spring doesn’t fall even with other pin. Patience & you’ll get it. Wife was my second pair of hands. Best.
