Went to range twice today. Damnit if I didn't forget the gun keys the first time. Only shot my CCW the first go around. Decided I had to go back and shoot my RRA carbine.

One of my USGI 30rd mags is really, really tight - both on insertion and removal. I'm comparing the tight one and a good right now side-by-side, but can't see an obvious difference. Both have the same magwell marks.

Ideas?

what are the "gun keys"? Anyway.. It's probably just an older mag. GI mags tend to widen out as they age. It's probably no big deal.

Fatten out with age irrespective of use? I've read of folks filing down the high spots... Gun keys for the locks.

A few light whacks with a rubber mallet and they're good as new! Just don't overdo it. It'd be bad to bind up the follower, you know. CJ

Troy's fix works great. I have used it on 3 mags now. Just go slow, take your time, and it will work perfectly. By the way, thanks Troy! Brad

Gun Locks? are those mandatory for transport in your state?

Thanks for the tip, Troy. I tried it, but am a bit hesitant to over do it for fear of wrecking a working mag. I'll tray again later. Gun locks for just in case. No laws I'm aware of in UT.
