If you did, would that be attached to your weapon? I wouldn't risk it. Hopefully, the legal guys on Calguns can answer your question.

Honestly, as long as it's not something like mag magnet and not in the immediate vicinity of the mag release, you're fine. By the contrary logic, even a live round would be "bad" due to it being well attached to the weapon (if not immediately accessible)

Wouldn't it be attached like a ubbt is attached? You can't use it unless it is no longer part of the weapon.
Unlike tool on a string or cable (or similar) attached to rifle which makes tool usable while attached.

I would say that would be ok to use its a tool and it wouldn't be the easiest thing to get to

I keep a "magnet thingy" (not officially a "mag magnet") in my grip core and don't think twice about it. There is no way to use it without detaching it from the rifle... and for that matter, I don't use it unless I cross a border. Good to go.

Mossy Man, you gave me an idea. I shaved down an NRA plastic chamber flag and it fits in my Ergo Grip quite nicely. Thanks.

afaik if it is not attached to the rifle while you are releasing the magazine its ok.as in taking it out of the compartment,using it,then putting it back in there.

Exactly right. I keep a couple of Q-Tips in my grip. They can work the bullet button. So what?

Anything could be a "bullet button tool", a live ammo, tools, sling, you an make anything jnto a tool. If you wanted to can literally take your stock off and use the pointy part as a bbt.
So yes, they have nothing on you

^yup.

as long as you can't actually use it in its attached configuration you're fine.

If you can't use it WHILE it's attached to the rifle, it should be fine. The UBB is technically attached to the rifle as part of the mag, but obviously you can't make use of it while it is.

Best rule of thumb...if a cop has to remove said tool from your rifle in order to remove the mag then you're gtg...however if the mag can be removed from your rifle without the tool ever leaving your rifle/sling/etc, then its bad.

I keep an old key in my grip. Light and expendable.

I keep a few rounds in my grip, therefore I keep a bullet button tool in my grip.
