Unhappy Help! PSL extractor spring

Please help! In cleaning my PSL, I think the extractor spring and very small metal piece (hopefully the extractor?) came out. These two pieces are right above the mag release. I cannot get the small metal piece back in its place. It seems as if it won't slide back into the grooves. Can anyone help a brother out??

That is your bolt-hold-open mechanism. You put the spring on the metal piece then slide it up from the bottom and there's a pin that goes in the little hole to keep it in place.

Or your bolt hold open latch and spring? The extractor is in your bolt.

Just get a small roll pin to hold it together. It's just the bolt hold open, you can leave them out as long as nessary.

Here's what I've got. It appears the pin is still in it but I can't slide the piece back up into the grooves from the bottom.

You need to push the pin out, insert the spring and BHO mechanism, Hold the mechanism all the way in (spring compressed), then re-insert the pin.

I looked at the second photo first and thought the fcg was in the way. The first photo was more clear that it wasn't. You're going to need to push the pin from the mag well side towards the fcg now, shouldnt be too big of a job.

Nope, just published prints for anyone to make their own. After they dried up it was the only way finish a build was to make your own.
