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!”
AR MAGLOCK Won hands down !
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.
I have upper and lower combinations that are “featureless ” one lower with the AR MAGLOCK, it can be quickly removed in all mis-feed malfunctions , this was a show and tell for the AR MAGLOCK….
AR MAGLOCK equipped.
Registering my AR and/or completely butchering it to comply is not something I wanted to do. I spent a lot of time learning about the rifle, about every component, building the whole thing part by part over a 9 month period until I was happy with it. Then to be told to remove this and that or to register, just annoyed the hell out of me.
That is why I am grateful for companies like AR MAGLOCK who develop simple and easy compromises to comply with the law without having to destroy the look or have to register. Thank you AR MAGLOCK!
I did a LOT of research on all the different options to stay compliant. Didn’t want to go featureless as that’s gay, and all of the other products on the market are inferior to the AR MAGLOCK. I actually purchased and tried competing products and none of them are as nice as this solution.
Once you get used to the AR MAGLOCK it’s actually faster than the bullet button.
Installation was simple, was even able to swap out the rear takedown pin using an appropriately sized punch and a carbon scrapper (dental pick) by pushing the takedown pin through with the punch. Once you reach the end of the detent groove use the pick to press the detent down and rotate the pin. Then push the punch the rest of the way through. Installation of the new pin is in the reverse. Use it to push the punch back through the lower making sure the detent groove is rotated away from the detent. once the pin is through the lower’s wall rotate the pin to allow the detent to seat into the groove.
Functioned flawless through several magazine changes. Decided to induce a double feed and was able to clear it by pulling both take down pins and pulling the front apart just enough to clear the upper receiver so I could drop the mag. problem solved. In fact, the only real annoyance is that the ring on the take down pin interferes with my ambi-saftey not a big deal though.
Overall, a fantastic solution that keeps me off the list!
Allows enough room to open without the upper completely falling forward.
Works best with this tether.
I spared no expense on this build. Spikes up and lower, Giesille Super Tricon trigger, Faxon flame fluted nitride 300 black out barrel with matched Faxon BCG, VG6 muzzle break, Yankee hill extend take down pins, PWS buffer tube kit with Spikes buffer and Strike Industries flatwire spring, Hogue butt-stock, Ergo pistol grip, Spikes Bar2 rail and when it came time to put in my parts to make it California compliant no thought was needed, AR MAGLOCK was the only way to go.
Like I said this is my 5th build and couldn’t imagine using another mag locking part other than AR MAGLOCK’s. In fact I have told other manufacturers that at gun shows when they are trying to sell me their product. So thank AR MAGLOCK for making California guns Great Again.
Flat-rate shipping was only $4.95 and took 4 days with a holiday thrown in there.
Keep it up guys!
Fit and function is great!!!
The installation is very easy and it’s use, although ridiculous to no fault of AR MAGLOCKS, is about as smooth as it can be while remaining compliant.
I purchased the kit with the extended take down pin so opening the receivers is as easy as grabbing the ring and pulling it loose.
I have recommended this to all my gun loving friends and would love to add this to my next build.
Save your old mag release button Merica!
No gun registration for me!
Thank you AR MAGLOCK.
It’s so easy to install, and allows you to keep your stock, grips and muzzle device.
Best of all, in 5 minutes you can be back to OEM should you go out of state or SHTF.
I highly recommend this option.
Here it is on one of my bench rest rifles complete with the Patriot-Pin.
AR MAGLOCK works perfectly on an Anderson lower.
Have a lesser brand on an M4 Forgery had to swap out since it didn’t hold mag properly.
With AR MAGLOCK I’m secure and it just works.
Thankfully there are companies like AR MAGLOCK who are looking out for us.
Here are my 2 Rifles sporting the AR MAGLOCK’s.
One is my .300 blackout Frankengun that I built as a budget rifle. The other is a Bushmaster in .223/5.56.
I just installed my AR MAGLOCK to my 80% lower receiver and it works perfectly.
Easy to install just as they said it would.
Even better than the bullet button.
I’ve had no issues with clearing a double feed, and changing out magazines is very quick and simple.
Great product overall.
My first time at the range with it installed, my rifle functioned flawlessly.
The AR MAGLOCK is faster than the bullet button and no tools are needed to operate it!
My A1 Clone, utilizing original era proper furniture. Thank you AR MAGLOCK for allowing me to retain the look and feel.
Looks better than the rest of the “options” to stay unregistered.
Also… Went on super easy!
NO SKILL REQUIRED to install! And I’m basically the “call of duty Internet guy” that other people make fun of for playing COD AND DRESSING LIKE IT!!!!
The AR MAGLOCK is far superior to its competitors. I would highly recommend this product.
Works as advertised.
Went to my local Calif range, no questioned asked after inspecting my AR.
It’s CA compliant.
Will use on my next build.
Smooth operation and quick.
Great Job On The Design.
