Magazine catch filing question.
Posted 02 January 2016 - 03:19 AM
When filing the little bit of the magazine catch, so far right now my mag catch locks a mag but the catch is touching the edge of the lug on the magazine.
What I wanna know is that should I be filing the mag catch some more so when the catch locks the mag the catch should be going past the lip edge and touching the magazine body?
I hope my question is making sense.

1 is the lip
2 is where I'm asking should the catch touch

The latch should touch the #2 surface, or at least get very close.
Remove tiny amounts of metal at a time and remove the burrs before checking fit.
You can square the surface by blackening the adjusted surface with a sharpie before testing, and rub the catch on the magazine 'lip' a couple times to remove the sharpie, the shiny side is the higher side.
Don't remove to much or you magazines will wobble.
