i was bumbling around recently looking for a tool to drop my AR15 mag and Lo & behold...:facepalm:...the A2, front sight adjusting tool i purchased for my Kel-tec SU16CA has a Phillips head screwdriver point on one end of it...it works beautifully for the bullet button..(The Phillips head)...:)

Sounds like that works well for you. You can also get a GPik and poke it through a glove on your middle finger. It's almost as easy as dropping mags without a BB. The other option is the UBB (Ultimate Bullet Button) tool that you can attach to your mags to drop the old mag before inserting the new one.

Here's an example of how I use the GPik option.

Wow, Glad we are even able to have these rifles.

Sad that we're talking about the need for a little actuator to drop a mag.

+1. It's a lot harder to lose a mag than a small BB tool.

Yea I got a little "tool" on my gloves too. But before that I just used a 5.56 round or a mini screw driver and hang it around my neck like a necklace.

Jesus god. I wonder how many packets of Kool-Aid it took for the injection molding process on that?

Depends on what flavor.

I found that in some boxes of ammo there is a white plastic cartridge separator that has long narrow parts that work well. Sorry I don't recall the brand.

Ha Ha... I never knew that Magpul made a BB tool. I'll have to look into that.

I'm not familiar with Gpik either, but they look cheap enough that I'd shell out $5 to try it out.

LOL. Actually they dont. Magpul sells polymer snap cap dummy rounds for training (3 came free with my ACS stock). The MIAD grip has a storage compartment that can hold 3 spare emergency rounds and I just stuck one of the dummy rounds in there as a backup BB tool. Works perfect and Im never without a tool close at hand. Of course you can use live ammo but the polymer dummy rounds wont leave marks on the lower and button.
