I just did this and wanted to share with you guys. I have not stumbled upon this before, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

DISCLAIMER!!
I am not responsible if something goes wrong and it breaks. This is a DIY tutorial and you alone is responsible for your own things.
This method is tried on JG and TM magazines.


Why should you do it?
Makes it easy to take out your magazine while wearing gloves.


Tools needed

• Screwdrivers to take apart the magazine
• Either a Dremel or regular Power drill with a 3mm drill.
• A small file
• Masking tape
• (NOT IN PICTURE) 550 Paracord, recommend 16in / 40cm
• Measurement equipment (For paracord)
• Small plier (For paracord)
• Lighter (For paracord)​


Walkthrough
Take apart you magazine. Be careful not to lose any of the springs, especially the 2 small ones.


Mask the outside of the magazine.


Mark at the top of the arch. This is here you will drill.


Drill inside and outward.



Remove the masking tape. The masking tape contribute to a clean hole.


File the corners of the hole. This is done to eliminate shape edges to damage the paracord.


Run the paracord through the magazine BEFORE assembling it.




Make a Diamond knot or what knot you prefer.

Now you are done!




Hope I could help someone out. :shot:

Bobcat: The VSR MagPul was my first thought. But I believe there is some copyright to that name. ;-)

Dore: If you are referring to my other guide, I can't test my rifle without some 0.43g bb. The build is done, only fine tuning is back now. I will try to get it written before or in this coming the weekend.

Well thank you sir. But I'm merely a cheap-chair-softer that solves problems that come along. I'm just happy to help. :)

Tape would work, but as you said yourself, this method is neater + you don't mess with the shape of the magazine. Risking misfeeding and magazine not fitting in magwell.

I was thinking something up after having problems removing the mags last weekend.
Great solution, it's definitely going on my 'great things yet to do'-list.

Thanks for sharing!

The other option I have been considering is to mod the mag release button to male it easier to press with gloves on. Always find mine quite hard to press.

I took apart a mag for the first time with the goal of stretching the spring and now I can't get it back together. I've spent entirely too much time trying to figure it out on my own. How does everyone else manage to put the mag back together without the spring bursting out and making the mag fall apart?!

Thanks

My trick is to assemble the front of the magazine, with most of the spring sticking out at the back (DO NOT CLOSE IT SHUT AND BEND THE SPRING, leave a little gap open.) Then gently press the rest of the spring inside the magazine. Hope this helps.
