Try the paste first.  If it doesn't work then it won't be as big of a deal to apply rtv after

I've been using froglube with no luck, so I think I need something more drastic.

Pickle- I just want to double check on the procedure. 1) Clean parts with alcohol. 2) Apply gasket maker to the base plate and mag body (parts #6 & 7). 3) Assemble the mag back together as normal. 4) Give 24 hours to cure.
That is correct. I put a nice coat of the stuff on the base plate, then put the original gasket in place to ensure it gets seated correctly, then put a coat on the top of the gasket and outer edges of the base/gasket, then assemble everything like normal. I suppose you could put the polymer shell back on too with the loading spring and follow etc. but I usually leave it off until it's fully cured and tested just so that if it fails I don't have to take it all apart again.

Hey all, I just wanted to give an update. I put FrogLube paste on my mags yesterday afternoon and so far so good. All four of them seem to be holding pressure. So far I'm very impressed.
