Picked up a set at the Vallejo show, didn't think about the Raddlock's smaller hole. Took the plastic covers, screwed them onto one of the screws, used a drill and file as an improvised lathe and turned 'em down until they fit far enough into the Raddlock to operate the mag release. Guess you could say I made my own "Kit C".

Also discovered that if you're left handed, mounting the tool on the lower rear spine of the magazine works better. It allows you to get a proper grip on the mags in the pouch (gripping the bottom front of the mag, index finger extended along the front spine of the mag) and use the tool to release the magazine in the weapon, then insert the fresh mag without shifting your grip.
