First off. I'm a noob. I just finished building my first AR that is totally legit. And I'm a leftly.

Came across this today.

Troy Ambi Mag Release (http://troyind.com/%20/troy-weapon-upgrades/troy-ambidextrous-magazine-release-coming-soon-2#)

To my understanding, having this installed on a gun would not make an AR illegal. But once you use it instead of the bullet button, you're screwed. Am I off the mark?

Please go easy on the flames.

If you are using a bullet button on the right hand side and you use that mag release you will have negated the purpose of the bullet button. You will be able to drop the magazine without the use of a tool. Don't do it unless you are running a featureless rifle.

no matter where the release is, if it can be released without a tool its a detachable magazine.
