Hello from Sweden!

I have a problem with my Molot factory mags that I'm hoping to get som help with. During a match this weekend, during a reload, I dropped my mag and the entire mag emptied, spraying shells on the ground. When I picked it up I noticed that the steel lips that wrap around the rear end of the top of the magazine had come off (luckily I found it again).

How do I make sure that the steel lips stay put?

This is something i have been meaning to do for the last 6 months and will be doing tomorrow.

After youre sure the mags fitted properly to the gun and it latches in and drops out when its supposed to then i guess you pry the lips off, scuff up the part of the mag that contacts the lips and also scuff the part of the lip that contacts the mag, and then glue it in place with something pretty strong.

I have never seen these spring lips for sale seperately and have always thought that if i lose one on a jungle run then i would have to buy a whole new mag. We dont get alot of options here in NZ for gun parts and bits n pieces, you might have a better chance of sourcing stuff in your part of the world though.

Hi and thanks! That's what I was thinking of, basically using super glue to get them to stick. What's the drawback of doing that though? Can you disassemble the mag with it glued in place? Is there any other way?

In Sweden we can still get pretty much any component without major problems except magazines so I'm like you, very careful with the ones I have :-)

Super glue becomes brittle and releases in sub freezing temperatures. Suggest epoxy. Slower set equals stronger bond. ;)

i have 2 ways to secure the metal feed lips, first is to slightly bend the feed lips in from the rear to give them more tension so they stay put better, the second idea is to apply some clean nail polish on under and outside of the feed lips, this should secure them better, i got this idea from my sister who is a beautician and i asked her for a idea that would keep a item such as this secure.

Haha, I'll ask my wife if can borrow her nailpolish

When she asks why I need it I wonder which answer will worry her more:

"I'm not saying"
or
"I need it for my guns"

:lol:

Google "What is nail polish made from?"

- Nitrocellulose (main ingredient in modern gun powder)

Let's put THAT in the breach at the top of a stack of rounds and rapid fire! ;)

If you do, I'm curious as to the results! I'm sure it's fine...

You do it first.

The nitrocellulose is dissolved... in other highly flammable solvents. :lol:
