1.) I just ordered a magazine feed lip repair tool from Brownells to fix some of my old less reliable mags. Has anyone had any luck with this tool and process? Years ago i tried the old pliers and wound up cracking one of them...no problem, I just had a friend in the biz swap one out with a new one in the armory. Well as luck would have it, I've lost that special person to a move and doubt if i could ever find a preban to swap it out.

2.) I also ordered a can of that Aluma-Hyde II in Desert Tan. Any problems with that stuff. Last stuff i used just flaked off in area where there was contact. I have bought some Perma-silk, but haven't tried it yet. I want to see if the mag repair tool works first.

Thanks fellow members, I'm just another guy trapped here in NY trying to keep the sanity.

Aluma hyde II is kind of thick and you have to watch for fitting problems that might occur. Also for me I found the part coated with it needs to set at least a week before use. Longer the better.

Do the regs allow you to buy repair parts for your mag body repairs?

1. I have not tried the feed lip repair tool but if it doesn't work you can get replacement magazine bodies to repair your prebans from CMMG and Cproducts

2. Aluma-Hyde II is good but takes a long time to fully dry (3 to 4 weeks)
acetone works well to degrease the mags before spraying them.

Yeah, I've got plenty of bodies for replacement, but if I can get one to work, why retire it? The law is so gray with loopholes...it ought to just go away!

If you replace the bodies just save the old ones. The replacements probably won't have dates so it would be hard to get into trouble.

Still waiting for package from Brownell's...gonna rain all week, so I can depend on "Brown" to get it to me then as they leave my stuff out in the rain every time. I don't even think the driver gets out of the truck! "Wiiiiiiiing", goes my package on the lawn!
