After several days of fitting and filing to get it to work with the different magazines that I have, I finally glued the adjustment screw, per instructions, and hammered in the plug and waited for the glue to set. After doing so I separated the upper and lower only to find that the small hex adjustment screw was now dragging on the upper. I adjusted it in, and in, and in, and in until it bottomed out but it still caught on the upper and would not allow it to close. I removed the screw so I could close the receivers, but then the magazine would drop if pushed. I cut, filed, and adjusted the screw until I was finally able to get it work as it should. But, once I tried it with a different magazine it would not function. So I had only one magazine that I could use. At this point I was done.
I went to my local gun store and picked up an AR MAGLOCK. However, before I could install it I had to drill out, yes drill, the magazine catch thus destroying it. Unlike that Patriot Mag Release, the AR MAGLOCK installed quickly, easily, and required absolutely zero adjustments. It works with all my magazines. I am able to swap out upper receivers without any troubles and in case of a malfunction, it is easily disabled with just a hex key.
Wish I would have purchased it first and saved myself the money and a lot of frustration. Thanks for such a well thought out product!
I’ve had no issues with clearing a double feed, and changing out magazines is very quick and simple.
Great product overall.
The AR MAGLOCK is faster than the bullet button and no tools are needed to operate it!
AR MAGLOCK is the best solution I found so I don’t have to worry about my gun being illegal.
These can save an accidental felony and confusion with police if the issue ever comes up. It happened to me and it can happen to anyone. I had a bitchin’ rifle confiscated from me because of my standard mag catch.
