Default Phoenix arms hp22 mod question...

Just did the mag disconnect and release mods on my brand new hp22. Now the magazine drops nice and smooth now, but the question is i still have to press down the mag release button down in order to fully insert the magazine back into the gun. Is this normal or did i screw the mod up? Thanks guys

I don't know if that is normal but it does not sound like it. I do know there are a lot of YouTube videos on this particular modification, maybe can find your answer there if no 1 here can help. good luck.

Very normal. They are fun to shoot. As Quickdraw stated, shoot standard velocity ammo. I cracked my frame and had to have it replaced. My new one is still sitting at the LGS as Phoenix still has to send payment for DROS. It has been 3 months so far and I am still calling Phoenix to get an eta on the check.

Needless to say, I will be selling my brand new one when it comes out of DROS - will come with 6 or 7 mags, 5 recoil springs, spare safety catch, and a 5" barrel also.
