Mag release locks

Is it possible to remove the locks that prevent you from releasing the mags from an unprimed springer?

Well im guessing it's totally possible, what Im wondering is will it cause any issues.

Cheers

It is not a lock that prevents the mag from being pulled out of an unprimed springer, it is the breech that slides over the lips of the mag. You would have to remove the breech to remove the mag from an unprimed springer. That's why you have to prime the blaster to halfway to remove the mag.

Ah ok, wont work then. Cheers.

If you're rough you can pull it out and put it in over the breech anyway =]

Doing this will result in damage to the magazine lips, over time they will become more open, mearning the darts fall out the top of your mags. Doing this with a brass breech will also damage the brass bolt. Unless you have a massive jam yanking the mag out with the action closed is grade A stupid.

But yes.. I wouldn't advise it. But it can be useful if the blaster locks up on you!

Isn't there a lock preventing the mag release from being used while the breech is forward on stock blasters though? I'm pretty sure there is, at least in retaliators.

I am probably not the person to ask, since I don't own any stock springers! A quick google shows there is a mag lock , it's the white plastic parts above the mag release mechanism. Yank those out and toss them and then all you are left with is damaging the magazine instead of a lock and damaging the magazine.

Yes there generally is a lock that prevents you pulling the mag release button while the breach is forward to stop you yanking the mag out and as ON said knackering the lips on the mag and also putting a fair bit of strain on the breach as well. I've taken this lock out in many blasters before and it doesn't make a huge difference if you know what your doing to be honest.

Cheers guys, I knew there must be something as the mag release button only pushes in part way if its not part primed.
I did however completely forget about the breech being in the way! 😂

I guess I need to start using more mag fed blasters,
Thanks for all the info though.

I had this problem when I modded an alphatrooper. i forgot to remove the breach mag lock completely, and then when I inserted the mag and primed, it just got stuck. Ended up silicone greasing it and tuggiing at it until it came out. The mag survived.
