Recently there are reports that some of our spare mags are not holding gas when user is charging the mag with green gas.  Please follow the steps below to tighten the Release valve.

Tools Require:
* Valve Key (available to purchase from airsoft retailers)
* 2.0 mm Allen Wrench

*** DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE VALVE, over tighten can damage the tread and will affect the gas release when operating in hot temperature ***

Step 1
Remove two screws on to of the mag.

Step 4
Insert the Release Valve Block in the Magazine.  Make sure the open slot is vertical so the long screw can be insert into the mag later.

Step 5
Place the Magazine disconnector and disconnect transfer onto the magazine.

Step 6
Insert the BB follower spring and BB follower into the mag.

Step 7

Step 9
Insert gas to test the mag for leakage.  If it's still leaking, please contact KWA Helpdesk at www.kwausa.com/support.

What should the valve look like when you take the rubber square piece off and look at it from the top?

So I got to do the same on a PMag, I figured it'd be the same as the GI Mags but looks like it's not that simple... O_o

I did remove the two top screws and the pin; I could remove the Magazine Lip and I see the Valve under it, but that's as far as I can get.

I tried looking elsewhere for info but couldn't find any...

Thanks

There are two screws on the botton
Tried removing them to no avail. They're very short, so I don't think they're involved in what interests us...

Maybe someone from KWA can chime in??
