Winter Park, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- ARMagLock is a new patent pending AR-15 fixed magazine solution. It allows New York, Connecticut, California and new potential Rhode Island AR-15 owners to comply with existing and proposed fixed magazine laws, potentially avoiding assault weapon registration within their respective states. Stay compliant with the laws.
See our legal disclaimer for additional information.
The ARMagLock turns your firearm into a “fixed magazine” firearm that can not release the magazine unless you pull the takedown pin, and separate the upper and lower receivers, thus “disassembling” the firearm action.
Once the receivers are minimally separated, the ARMagLock can be engaged to release the magazine.
After many requests we have produced this illustrated photo guide to installing your own ARMagLock accessory on your own firearm.
You will need the following tools:
- Pick Tool
- Screw Driver (small)
- Bullet Button Tool (optional)
- Allen Wrench that is included
- Needle Nose Pliers
- May need Dremel or file for troubleshooting
Installing the Magazine Catch Bar:
Notes for troubleshooting:
1. After installation of the ARMagLock the button is loose in the lower, to the degree that the magazine can be removed without separating the upper and lower receiver and pushing the button.
a. It should be tight enough that the magazine catch bar keeps magazines from being pulled out even with force, just like an OEM magazine catch. Tighten the cap screw until the desired fit is acquired.
2. After installation of the ARMagLock the button is tight in the lower, to the degree that the lip is jamming between the upper and lower receivers when attempting to close them.
a. It should be tightened to the point that the magazine catch bar holds magazine in place but not so tight it jams the upper bar between the upper and lower. If the required tightness for magazine retention continues to place the upper bar between the upper and lower receives when attempting to close, remove a few thousands of an inch (with a Dremel, light file or sand paper) off of the upper edge. (see image below) Continue until the upper lip is flush with the upper receiver when closed.
Replacement of Rear Takedown Pin:
The easiest way to remove your takedown pin without undoing the castle nut and stripping the staking is to do the following. Pull the rear takedown pin and open the receiver.
