If you dip that little rascal in some grease when you install it,it'll help keep it in place.
Just lost the same spring installing the Apex J frame spring kit on my 642-1. I thought I saw it fall out with the hammer, but couldn't find it. After reassembly it wouldn't cock the hammer. Finally figured out what was missing and a search turned up this thread.
Any issues getting the springback in?
I lost a little spring out of a Colt revolver,A magnet found that little sumabitch in a whole pile of junk
