Are the mags a tight fit? If they go in easily, just depress the mag release until you can back it out a turn or two. A popsicle stick works well to over-depress the catch. [b][size=1]Don Out[/size=1][/b] [b][size=4][red]AIRBORNE! 2/505 PIR H-MINUS[/red][/size=4][/b]

I don't think the mag release is the problem. I've had a couple of Oly lowers that I built up that just had a tight magwell. Some mags would drop free while others wouldn't. I used some BreakFree and some fine steel wool to "polish" the magwell on one of them and it worked great. The other one I just kept using and eventually the mags started to drop free. Maybe Oly just doesn't worry too much about the thickness of the finish inside the magwell? Michael

Since your post implies that you are up to your ass in lowers, send it back.
