..Specifically my KJW 1911.
Maybe its from a defect maybe from overtightening when I replace the co2 cartridges but the pin is a little bent/ deformed and the co2 just hisses out immediately now. I saw eliteforce makes a mag rebuild kit for about 18$ - almost as much as a new mag (~30$) and contains a lot of other parts I don't need. I emailed the manufacturer but they're in Taiwan so I imagine their response will be in the cryptic language of fortune cookies...
Anyone find a way to replace these stupid little pins? The thing lasted 6 months with light usage.

You could take it apart and try and sharpen/reform it a little bit. But I’d just get the rebuild kit if it’s cheaper. Only if you don’t want more mags.

Atlanta airsoft told me they don't think they are compatible (tho they weren't certain). I would hope the puncture pin and its housing are universal but you know, its airsoft.

Far as tinkering without the kit, I don't know how to get that part out of the mag without dremeling the center of a wide flat head screwdriver to unscrew it, which is probably more trouble than its worth. I suspect the punctire pin is too flattened or short and thats why co2 is hissing out so filing it would probably make ot worse
