    Good to bring back an old topic. I did one a long time ago were the spring snaps over the magazine lock hole. Very easy DIY and cheap! Picture 1050.jpgPicture 1049.jpg

    It is a decent idea. The only possible issue that I can think of is a weak magazine release spring allowing the magazine to become unseated.

    Thanks M1P90 for posting that, so I didn't have to go looking for that.

    m1p90, i remembered seeing that a long time ago and my only concern was bending the coils or snagging and stretching the spring.

    I had finally got the extended mag release but still felt like it was lacking ease of mag changes. But with the spring to help pop the mag up it is much easier to hit it back and then just grab the mag for a quick change.

    00stormbringer, I agree that was a concern at first but the mag latches very well so i don't think it will happen. Another concern was the upward pressure on the mag might have some impact on how the bullets would feed into the chamber. I know this has been an issue with AE ammo and after market magazines, i will just have to see if it impacts how my gun feeds while shooting.
