M1911 Mark II PTP - magazine rattling
Posted 13 July 2010 - 07:19 PM
So I bought my first GBB pistol yesterday, the M1911 Mark II PTP, from AirsoftGI. I wasn't able to fire it at all that day since the green gas hadn't arrived yet, but I was screwing around with it for awhile. The magazine seemed solid, that is until I tried to fire it today. I loaded the mag with green gas and .20g KSC perfects. Immediately after filling the mag with gas, it started to rattle around. It sounds like there is something metal loose in the mag. It functions fine, but I do not want to use it more for fear of damaging it. It's still under warranty as well. Is this something common and easily fixable, or am I going to need to RMA this mag?
Also, if I can fix this myself, where can I find instructions to disassemble it? I can't seem to find a guide for this specific mag, probably since it is so new.
The green gas, mine shipped from Airsplat:
Thank you in advance,

They pop back in easily if you have proper hand tools, but opening the magazine up will void the magazine's protection.
If you are unsure, the KWA service center is always more than happy to take a look.

What tools would I need?
Is there a magazine disassembly guide somewhere? I've only been able to find guides for the gun itself

just a warning, this will void warranty[as indicated in my title line]
You'll basically need a set of pin punches, like a 3/32 will do it. as well as a Phillips driver and a plastic mallet. Maybe some superglue.
First foremost, release all the gas. This will keep you from crapping yourself. Next, remove the plastic base plate on the magazine with the Phillips. This will show the base plate. Drive out the two pins with the 3/32 punch and slowly pull out the base. The tube should fall out with it. If you look closely, the tube goes into the base. Just put the base and tube on a hard flat surface and give it a light tap with the plastic mallet. Dab some super glue on it and let it dry. DO NOT INSTALL IT IF THE GLUE IS STILL WET. When the glue settles, just reassemble
