Based on this thread, I'm going to chalk it up to a new gun problem, and hold on polishing/sanding the AR maglock for now. Hope it gets better after a few hundred rounds, but might take 1000+ rounds before I see a noticeable improvement.


First thing to try is a standard mag release spring. Something with more pressure to push the AR Maglock out. Make sure also that the AR Maglock is perfectly 90 deg to the firearm.

Fire a lot of rounds but who is going to argue with that?

Hey guys.

Just to let you know the Hyperswitch is now launched on AR Maglocks website and is available as pin solution only as well as with an AR Maglock Kit.

If you already have a maglock device and just want a better pin solution this makes for a great upgrade without breaking the bank.

Also we have a Buffer Receiver Stop that prevents the upper from flopping around. Unlike other devices that put all the pressure on the front takedown pin this puts no pressure on the critical areas and makes mag changes fast.

Check it out.

Once we have surplus Kingpins those will become available for purchase by themselves as well.

Thanks guys.

Here is a video

Can you post some photos or another video of how the buffer receiver stops works, it’s hard to tell from the video which mostly shows the hyperswitch.

Sorry about that.

Here is the install video for it

btw

in the video i'm using it with the Freedom Follower so you just need to open the receiver.

Hey shooters.

Sorry itís taking so long but engineering for .308 is a pretty tough endeavor. Finally getting some prototypes to test so here are some teaser pics

Would it be possible to explain a bit more how you got it to work with the bolt locked back? I'm having the same issue with a brand new build (no rounds through it yet)? I dont understand what you mean by fitting the tab.

Also any tips on how to clear a double feed if I cant release the magazine since I cant get enough separation yet when the bolt is locked back?

Many thanks.

Basically I had to fit the small angled tab that touches the upper. In my case I had to file along the sloped surface (top of the tab) while maintaining the angle it has. This let it fit into the gap between the upper and lower when it was opened and the bolt was back. It fit as-is with the bolt closed as it opens further like that, but I wanted to maintain the ability to mag swap with the bolt open.

I also had to file the tab along the edge that touches the upper (make the tab shorter in the direction perpendicular to the receiver). With the mag inserted, the maglock would not push far enough out to have the tab clear the upper and lower to let them close.

Recipe.


I hate to say it but you have to be patient with this. Unless you're competent on smithing like Broadside the chances of you ruining the maglock are high if you dont know what you're doing.

Keep the maglock on and shoot a few hundred rounds through and see what happens. If this is a new build as in the video you watch you can see I can't get the maglock into the space created when popping the kingpin.

As far as clearing a double feed there are a few methods out there. In the interim of you breaking in the rifle just shoot with a 10 round mag and remove baseplates during the break-in period if you encounter a double feed. You will notice the rifle becoming looser and looser the more you shoot. And what better excuse can you have to shoot?!?!?!

If that doesnt suit your needs you can hop on Juggernauts website and see how they do it. I DO NOT ENDORSE this method but in a pinch with careful hands will get you running again. If you're coming upon double feeds a few times in one range session, something else may be wrong. either with your mags or improper lubrication or obstruction.

Anyway...I hope this helps but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be patient and fire your rifle some. Modifiying the maglock is your last resort.

I agree with protohyp here.

Unless you are comfortable with fitting parts or are willing to buy a replacement (or two) maglock, try breaking in everything first. My rifle had a couple thousand rounds through it but I still I had to fit my maglock though.

The maglock is pretty soft and is very easy to take too much material if you are not careful.

Default HyperSwitch vs. KingPin and B.R.S and .308/AR10 UPDATE!!!!!!

Will your products in the 308 platform work with 308 lowers like bushy and Fulton that have the flange over the rear takedown pins? The external springs on other solutions wonít work with these lowers.

Thanks

It is entirely possible but untested for those particular lowers. Itís hard to produce for the masses with .308 being such a small mass and specialized .308ís being an even smaller part of that mass. Thatís why itís taking us a while to get the .308 pin out because we want to be able to accommodate as many rifles as possible

Based on the pictures of Fulton rifles the only adjustment that seems to be needed may be a shorter spring. Again without having one available to test on we couldnít answer definitively but Iím only basing that on the pictures of the lowers I see on the internet.

Proto,

How does your pin differ from JT ?

I see a spring, does your pin also have a removable nut?

It is more robust but lower profile so much easier access to safety. Much easier to remove and install. No removable nut. Comes with a longer detent so you donít lose it if you take the pin out.

protohyp,
this may be a stupid question but after reviewing the thread i was unable to find the answer.
Besides the obvious cooperation with AR Maglock, is there a reason the Kingpin cannot be used with a standard mag release button and freedom fighter fixed mag kit installed?
Im aware some are not willing to modify their lower and for those, the AR Maglock is far superior of an option. But those that have a freedom fighter kit already installed, seems like the Kingpin would be a sweet setup. Just saying....

Thanks for the support but the Kingpin solo has been for sale on AR Maglocks website for a few weeks now.

And yes through this thread people have reported that it works great with the freedom fighter kit. We just saved our inventory for the rush to get compliant and now they're available as just a pin alone.

Thanks.

I'm anxiously awaiting for the day that it is released for .308. I bought one for my wife (AR Maglock Gen 2 with Kingpin) and can't wait to get one on mine. Please keep us updated.

My machinist is waiting on a new Collet for his machine because the added length on the .308 has been problematic.

I want to make sure everything is right before we launch so please hang in there. You can see as simple as the Kingpin is I put a lot of time into thinking it through and as much as I'd like to say we can just increase the size of the Kingpin to accommodate .308 it just isn't that easy.

Stay tuned folks. you will all be the first to know.

Thanks

Don't mind waiting.

With the Kingpin and the 3.33 mag catch in a 308 do you know if we can drop the mag with the bolt back?

I donít have any experience with the 333 catch so canít verify. We did design it to work with the .308 with bolt holdback in most rifles.

Again .308 is a different monster than .223/5.56. Too many variables to provide consistency which is why we are taking our time to allow for application to most rifles

Hey guys

I was just informed by AR Maglock that Gen 2 arms are available as a stand alone Maglock kit now on their website. They're working on revamping the website but it is in a pulldown menu when you get to the Gen 2 options.

For those that want double feed clearing can now use the Gen 2 arm with ANY takedown pin to do this. Since the bolt will need to be held back to clear a double feed you dont need the Kingpin to clear although the Kingpin obviously adds speed to your reloads. If you want bolt hold back and have a JT pin now you can upgrade to Maglock Gen 2 for this feature.

44.95 for Gen 2 Maglocks

https://armaglock.com/product/ar-mag...-5-56-gen-2-2/


Of course i'd still love it if you guys could get the Kingpin but this just gives you more options.

Also the machine shop is working diligently on getting final protohyp testing on the .308 pins to me so once I approve those we will have .308 pins available hopefully soon.

For those that want double feed clearing can now use the Gen 2 arm with ANY takedown pin to do this. Since the bolt will need to be held back to clear a double feed you dont need the Kingpin to clear although the Kingpin obviously adds speed to your reloads. If you want bolt hold back and have a JT pin now you can upgrade to Maglock Gen 2 for this feature.

44.95 for Gen 2 Maglocks

Of course i'd still love it if you guys could get the Kingpin but this just gives you more options.

Also the machine shop is working diligently on getting final protohyp testing on the .308 pins to me so once I approve those we will have .308 pins available hopefully soon.

If the detent comes from the bottom at the grip it should work.

Thanks for the support! We absolutely want to get it right and because of the variances of .308 receivers we had to really find a good middle ground to run with. This also means specĎ if the proper spring for it which is proving to be a little more difficult than the .223 Kingpin

We are almost there though!
