Can't remove the old BB to replace. Can't push mag lock out far enough to rotate the BB off the stud. Any ideas??

well if you don't plan on reusing any part of the mag release you can drill through it, or you can spend $6 on the wonder tool * and with it you can unscrew the BB.

Wholly S%%^*, Now I need another mag release?? I have the older BB where no tool to install is required.

Got it! Had a little brain fade, it had been awhile since that install!

I was just thinking "how can you not remove the bb" :D Well, unless you used "lock tight" on the thread then it may take some "elbo grease" :D

Or you could always rig the BB tool to an impact wrench ;)

Wait, maybe that's a bad idea.
