Uzi Mag Problem

Recommended Posts

Got my M16 a few weeks ago. Colt. Also bought a 9mm Colt upper to go with it. I got a VM Hyteck magblock to use Uzi mags. The cartridge bases sit too low in the mag to be stripped by the bolt. They all seem to have this problem; the lips have a curl in them that makes the whole cartridge sit to low. I bought some 25 rd. IMI used and some new 32 rd MecGar. All have that curl.

Metal is hard & brittle; starts cracking when you try to bend the lips.

Advice needed!

Go to www.Brownells.com. They have a Mag Gauge that allows you to properlly reset the magz. Comes as a whole kit it of special shaping plyers, the guage and a few other things.

I looked on Brownell's but couldn't find it. Is there a key word I could look for?

Tried the obvious ones I could think of.

Thanks

I just looked through the sight again and didnt see it either. I will give them a call tommorow and get the part number for you.
