Having just received one of these beauties, and suffering from lack of nails to pull the blighters out, could you elaborate on your solution, please - a pic would be handy.
Thanks

Sorry for delay, I've only just seen this.

I cut little loops of string and just attached them to the bottom of each mag by wrapping electrical tape around the mag a couple of times. The knot in the string prevents it being pulled out.

I'll sort out a picture shortly.

This is how I did it on my Mosin Nagant mags.

Piece of webbing (thinner the better) wrap it around your finger to get size, glue onto bottom of mag

Yep, that's pretty much what I did, except I used black tape wrapped around the whole mag rather than just glueing the loop on.

Mine don't need to be more snug. I have trouble pulling them out.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

The tape around it might be better to pull with.

As the owner of several real Enfields, all I can say is that I'd love one of these. :)

Eh, I have a feeling US Customs wouldn't look kindly on them shipping one to me. :P

What's the base airsoft rifle of the No4? Mine's recent - early this year.
In particular, I'm after hop adjustment information.

What are the mags modified from?

Used to be APS-2 based with different hop units.

Not sure what it is now. I sold my S&S No.4 to Craig a while back

I think they are now based on APS Type 96s, mine is anyway.

Hop adjustment is via a small allen key hole in the magazine well.

Thanks.
I figured it'd be that, but any idea which way to turn it?

Clockwise for more hop, anti-clockwise for less hop.
