Default Lazy mans Fixed Mag...

Think it was 68cent for 3 of the plastic covers size 10... Homedepot
thin hex nuts were from work...

Fits almost flush with the plastic cap... but has about 1-2mm exposed so u can barely grip it with a good adjustable wrench.
Just used the Mag Catch + the plastic cap + Nut

cost for per set... less than a quarter...


Similar to McMaster.com products
91620A200 Plastic covers
90730A411 Thin hex nut

looks like this

Wrench
1 screw black plastic screw cover
1 thin walled nut (10-32)




The plastic screw cover acts as a plastic washer as well as hiding the nut.
Picked these up from Home depot...

Looks clean and like it was made for it.

Looks nice.

If you had someone say you can't have a detachable tell 'em, 'go ahead, push the button and make the mag come out, I dare you."

I like that so very much more than the regular nylock nut people have been using.

Wow, that's a nice setup. Got more specifics on that black cover?

I think I'll be picking up a few of those, just so I don't have to buy any more CA compliance kits. It looks quite nice.

Any chance you could take a pic of the packaging the stuff comes in? It'd help with tracking it down - I normally only make tool runs to home depot, and buy my bolts/whatnot from a local supplier where I like the bin selection better.

So basically, are you using the regular detchable mag parts minus the spring and button?

Agreed.

That looks much cleaner than some of the kits out there.

hey, that was my idea except i used a "tee" nut. everything was only $5 and enough for 2 lowers...




edit: I should mention one thing... The outside diameter of the t-nut was actually larger than the inside diameter of the screw cap I used, so I had to grind off some material from the nut. I had the tools readily available at work, but a dremel and pliers will work too. If you don't want to put the work into it, just use the thin nut jtyoshi used. Easier on you... plus, cheaper

it really shouldn't sink as long as the nut's diameter is larger than the opening for the mag catch button. mine is so much wider that it definately will not sink into the hole in the receiver.

The nut + Plastic cap are both larger than the mag hole so they dont sink in at all.

yeah, thats what i thought (logically) with the nut and nylon washers i bought too. but when tightening down the nylon bends under pressure and sinks in a bit. so thats why i asked.

thanks for the info though.

Do you go to Ace Marshalls? Excellent selection of fasteners and what not.

Lowe's seemed to be the only one I can find with the harder-to-find section of the hardware isle. OSH, Ace, Home Depot.. the selection just wasn't as good.

And while anyone else is at a hardware store, pick up a 1/4" clevis pin like this one

Mine cost just under $2, and makes installing the pivot pin sooo much easier, and not worry about shooting the spring and detent across the room. works just like the pivot pin detent tools priced at $5+

This is for the noobs to the OLL AR scene. (this thread is almost 2000 days old )

I was just going through some of my old threads and found this... LOL!

Good ol' nuts and bolts from Home Depot is how we used to fix our mags! Top loading was the norm. I'm so thankful for the Bullet Button and Calguns!!

A true lazy man orders his online and sits on the couch playing COD til ups drops it off haha.

Defiantly cool device you made for that cheap! I bet alot of people would re-consider spending 40$ on a BB when they can make one for .68cent

I just thought it was a neat flash back to what worked at that time and what we all thought was legal.
