Does anyone know why they don't like holding any bbs? Does anyone have a fix for it?

Normally removing the speed loader carefully does the trick however last night 2 of my mags just wasn't having it

Any help of the matter will be appreciated

Thanks
JD

Mine is terrible for spewing out the bbs at any opportunity. Other than making sure the catch is oiled the only other solution is to treat them gentle.

The problem is the Sten hopup. King arms mags hold bb's better as the catch sticks out further, but this causes problems getting them to fit into a Sten.

Yep that's exactly what I found. If my agm metal mag vents all the bb's one more time I'm stripping it down and looking for a solution. Maybe laser cut a new catch. If I do I'll make spares!

It's possible that a stronger spring on the catch may help. Personally I just learned to live with it and treat my mags as if they are made of nitroglycerine until I get them into my mag pouch.

If you remove the catch you can file away the forward part of the grooved bit that you push back to release the bb's ,this allows the catch to move further forward over the bb's ,simple to do .

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.

Probably only needs 1mm maybe 1.5mm ,if you do a little you can always cut a bit more ,much harder to put material back if you take too much off.

Right, finally got round to taking alook into this....

Is there any other way of taking the mags apart? Other that taking the bottom plate off

The top plastic lip just clipps into the outer metal shell ,one clip on either side ,there are two holes each side near the top on a slight diagonal ,in the lower hole you can just see the edge of the clip ,they need to be pressed in with a fine screwdriver from both sides and with a third hand pull the top lip out ,seriously though don't push the clips in too hard as they can snap off .there's no need to remove the base plate at all.
