I have a friend who got a new gun and he had a UTG MK96 before, and he gave me his two mags. Well these two mags are the standard ones that come with the gun and worked fine when I got them, but one of them has a problem I'm not sure how to fix. When I push down on the plastic part and it goes into the metal base, and doesn't come back out on its own. Its like the spring that pushes it up is broken or something, I'm not really sure what the problem is, because I was able to jimmy it back up with a knife and when I push it down there is still resistance but theres no force to push it back up. Any help/advice would be appreciated :)

There are two pins on the side of the magazine that you will need to pop out. Once they are both out, lift the upper plastic portion from the back end and allow it to swivel upward. You should see a large spring in the middle of the magazine housing right below the portion you just lifted up.

The spring is either out of place (I'm sure you can fix this if this is the case) or the spring is broken/missing. Let me know what you see as soon as you lift the upper plastic portion.

ok i did that (thanks for that advice btw) and I can see now thats its not the spring. This is kind of hard to explain without visuals and I don't have my camera right now but I will try my best. The metal part of the mag surrounds a smaller plastic rectangle that hold all the parts of the mag, it is plastic and the seam that runs down the middle has spread apart and it holds the "pushy-downy" part of the mag against the metal base. I am not sure where to go from here... should I throw some electrical tape around it to hold it together? or super-glue it? or is there another option maybe?

Ah, well if the seam has split there's no other option than making it stick back together with tape or glue as you stated. If I were in your shoes I would try tape first and if that doesn't work too well, super glue as a last resort. Or super glue + tape >:D.

If you plan on super gluing, try cleaning whatever you're about to glue with rubbing alcohol. This should allow maximum adhesion.

Grease really shouldn't do much for the magazine in theory, and
I've avoided greasing the magazine because grease in the magazine would lead to...

grease in the mag well, BBs, hop up, bucking, inner barrel, and finally this all leads to bad accuracy and FPS consistency. All in that order >:D
