My trigger spring fell off one side of the trigger shoulder. All I was doing was cycling the bolt. I assume this isn't normal so do I need to get in there with a needle nose and tweak it in a little? Would I be better off to invest in a new spring? TIA.

You talking the wire(sheppard hook) that holds the hammer and trigger all together??? Just get youre needle nose out...After a little cussing it will go right back in...

No, not the shepherds hook. It's a wire wound spring in a U shape. Reading up on the subject some call it the "hammer spring legs". One leg rests on each side of the trigger group. I'm new to this model so I'm a little leery of just bending the spring so it's up against the receiver wall. Maybe I need a new one?

Just bend it a little. This is an AK - you can't hurt it unless you really try

scromer is correct, bend it a little, back over it with a Peterbilt, or just yank the hell out of it. Then it'll work just fine.
