New Help with Kel Tec Spring

Hey everyone,

I ordered the Skeletonized Charging Handle and tried to put it on. One of the ends popped off and I cannot get the pieces inside to the end of the spring when I compress them. I have attached some photos. Any suggestions?


Search the forum for the alternative install technique that compresses the spring by twisting.


Thats a tough spot to start from @jj12345
I would start with compressing the factory end cap side as tight as possible, and push a small allen key through the first hoop of the spring guide wire. Then on the second section, you will only be manipulating half the compression strength. The twist method will be much easier from that point.
