Well it is pretty simple. The mag release has a spot that the spring fits into. Then you slide the two into the ejector block slot which has a place for the other end of the spring. The screw goes through the receiver to hold the mag release in place. Noe you will have to wiggle the mag release until the screw goes through the hole then just tighten the screw. I wish I had a video for you, but I do not. If you play around with it you will figure it out.

To get the mag latch in place, I stick the spring in the hole on receiver, and I jam latch up in the slot where the latch is supposed to go. If the spring doesn't pop into place, I push it with a paper clip or screwdriver until it pops into place.

Next, you gotta get the mag latch screw through the bolt hold-open device. I stick a paper clip through the hole on the opposite side, and I use the paper clip to depress the little spring-plunger dingus in the bolt hold-open device. While depressing the dingus, I insert the mag latch screw from the opposite side, simutaneously pushing the paper clip out of the way. If you don't do this, you may have a helluva time trying wiggle the mag latch screw past the BHO dingus.
