    DIY magazine release spring

    know this isn't the best looking rig but it works and I'm sure many of you can find something that works better but it's an idea to run with for now and see who can make it better.This us a thin piece of metal bent and then tapped to the shell. It lays flat when the magazine is latched but when you pull back the mag release it springs up the empty mag so you don't have to hold the mag release back and lift at the same time.

    i was originally thinking of a small piece of metal with the width of the inside of the stock and bent to a narrow V shape, then sandwiched between the receiver and stock when putting the gun together. But i didn't have anything on hand that fit the description so i made due with what i had.

    Many years ago somone tried to come up with an idea like this.

    While it seems like it would be helpful, wasn't easy to get something that worked well.

    Your design seems like it would work ok.

    I think FN's thought was when removing the mag, you used one hand to actuate the mag latch, as you were pulling up on the mag to remove it. One fluid motion, with your weak hand.

    We need to have a spring made/ designed that snaps in somewhere. I like that idea.

    I tried something like this on an airsoft I use to have. Hot glue wouldn't hold after awhile. Completely forgot about that and congrats to bringing it to the table. Hoping you develop something...
