I just read this and see it's an old post...
But can anyone tell me if the OP ever followed up ?
If he did follow up in a new post... Please let me know and I'll be sure to apologize.

My hat is off to JackP for going way out of his way to be so generous with tips and suggestions, even supplying links to see and research (Which I believe the OP never looked at).
I need to also include other members that offered up their help.
You all showed concern and provided good honest interest in helping.

The OP was told multiple times to load no more than 2 rounds for fear of a "Run Away".
Then comes back talking almost Giddy about multiple Run Aways on Full Auto.

IMO some just have no business with a gun.

Charlie, we never did hear from the OP again. He said he was in the process of moving to Florida so perhaps he's been otherwise distracted for the last...6 months? Hopefully he sent it back to AO like Tuna suggested. BTW, I have since learned an easy way to install the trigger spring using a paper clip. I could have saved $5.

Thx for the reply JP.

I pull the guts out of a Bic pen and use it to R and R the Trigger spring.
Always plenty of them around in the junk drawer.

Thx Again,

I just put a string thru the loop then out the hole and pull it into place.
