Ultimate Bullet Button Tool from "Thordo":
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=262666

Once the blocks and bullet button tool were installed, I riveted the base plate to the spring plate to permanently fix the magazine closed. The rivets then got touched up with a black sharpie. Here they are:

Looks awesome! But because I'm an idiot, can you explain what the screws on the side are for?

I'm new to BBs and whatnot, but I was just reading on another topic that if you attach your tool to the rifle in any way (including rubber banding it to a sling) then it becomes part of the rifle and makes it an AW??

Is a magazine different?

once the magazine is in the rifle its impossible to use the tool attached to it to release the mag. Its like trying to touch your chin with your nose, it aint never gunna happen...


im going to add a bb tool to one of these. kinda nerdy but whatever.

OK, that seems logical, but I have long since sworn off relying on what seems logical as legal opinion

I actually make my own version of "the ultimate bullet button tool" for my own mags. have been doing it for years. I take a plastic nut and bolt and put it through the hole in the bottom baseplate of my c products mags. then i cut the plastic bolt to the right size and dip it into rubber tool dip and let it dry. works perfect for 3 gun when i need to change mags and after the initial investment of about 10 bucks i can do about 50 to 100 mags and still have half a container of rubber tool dip.
