Hey all... So I got my Vulcans, and the mag catch is glued.

hmmm....rather nasty looking.

My best idea would be to freeze it overnight. Put it on a non maring surface, like a towel, and with a punch and a mallet, give it one big giant wack on the springed side.

Probably not great advice, but I think it has a good chance of working.

how does the pin and glue work?

I just pushed mine with my finger and the glue broke.

The Glue keeps it from working.

Not an expert... Soak in Solvet...

Call Vulcan. Ask what glue they use.

If you can get a straight answer, ARFcom can find you a solvent.
Then might go one better and let you know how to unfuck it.

Otherwise....methy ethyl ketone or acetone are good all around solvents, though vapors are explosive.

Heat often works, unsure if you can get it where you need it accurately enough.
