    If you can't find exactly that spring, you can try to find L461/L579/L61R bolt retainer spring and clip off the excess. I believe this is how they were made originally anyway.

    Addition: it is part number 16 bolt stop spring in the old parts diagrams. The part code is changed though. The one in the old diagrams will get you the M90 version, which doesn't work for your purpose or fit old L-series rifles. What you want is code S3341224.
