I've noticed some members not sure of how to use the above magazine locks correctly, to stay legal/compliant in CA. Below I've listed each product and the correct use.

FreeLock Mini Conversion Kit

The FreeLock Mini Kit is designed to work with your Prince50 Bullet Button. It is not a bullet button by itself. It allows you to convert your Prince50 Bullet Button into a 2 position magazine lock. The FreeLock Mini Button stays installed in your Bullet Button and you switch between positions with the FreeLock Tool.

This gif shows the 2 positions available.

As you can see in the above gif and video, when the button is screwed in all the way it operates as a standard fixed magazine that can only be operated with a tool. i.e. pushing in to release the magazine. You are not able to use your finger.

Now when the button is unscrewed it can be operated without the use of a tool(can be operated with your finger). In this position you must be out of the state of California and in another state that allows a standard AR-15 magazine release; using a .22 upper receiver or conversion kit; or using a featureless build. Please use the search for info on featureless builds.

Prince50 Wonder Wrench

The Wonder Wrench is designed to be intalled only when your rifle is setup correctly. The wonder wrench can be installed when you are out of state, using a .22 upper/conversion kit, or using a featureless build. The wonder wrench is also designed to be used for installation of your Prince50 Bullet Buttons center nut. Just be sure to stop screwing the center in before the the threads on the wonder wrench start to catch.

Raddlock AR-15 Two-Position Bullet Button

That AR-15 Raddlock Bullet Button is a two position bullet button by itself. The Raddlock in designed to be able to switch between a fixed magazine rifle and a non fixed mag rifle when; out of state, using a .22 upper/conversion kit, or using a featureless build. The Raddlock stays installed on your rifle and a tool is used to switch between the two positions.

B-16 Bullet Button

The B-16 operates as a Bullet Button alone with the standard magazine release parts. The B-16 is designed to be removed and expose the original magazine release for use out of state, with a .22 upper/conversion kit, or with a featureless build.

This list was to explain the proper use of the interchangeable magazine locking devices. I left the Prince50 Bullet Button out because it's use is pretty straight forward.

If there are any AK mag locks that are designed to switch back an forth then the manufacturer can post in this thread. I am unaware of any.

good bump. I bought the freelock kit for my first build, and a few on here thought it was the wonder wrench...mine is DEFINATELY installed correctly! Its a very nice product btw, since we have a vacation house in Bullhead city that butts up on BLM land.

I'm glad you like it and that you got it installed correctly.:thumbsup: The last thing I want is someone to get in trouble for having anyone of the above products setup wrong.
