Right hand mag release. The MagLev

Post by Solscud007 on Fri Feb 22, 2013 8:50 pm

So this project has been on my mind for over a year. I had a 3D prototype printed last Nov, but it arrived after I sent my Kriss back to VA Beach. When I put it on, the polymer lever was too flimsy to pull the mag catch.

I went out to talk to a metal fabricator to get these made. We discussed the rigidity of different types of metal and he made a rough lever for me to test the rigidity. So now I have a functioning prototype.

Yep, and the stock can still fold and lock onto the catch in the folded position.

I will definitely be interested in one if you manage to produce a few more.

I could review and test it as well if you need more testing. I can post vids and pics as well.

Sadly the quote i got is astronomical and puts the cost of these WAYYY to high. So I need to find another quote.

Since this thread seemed to die somewhat, I ended up coming across a product being advertised by Ace1Arms, a Chinese airsoft company and talk about it in a different thread. If Solscud007 ever comes back around, I wanted to ask him if this was his product or did someone see what he did here and rip his idea off?

Funny you should mention that. I saw it too. I noticed a lot of similarities in their description that mirror my ideas. Like the use of KWA mags and how it helps you with mag changes.

Anyway I spoke with them, they admitted to seeng my video. They are sending me a sample to test and evaluate on my real vector. I plan on ordering them for us if it is viable for the real Vector.

Can you also ask them what their price will be, and when / where they will be available? And it appears to me the mags KWA makes are dimensionally identical to the real deal, so I don't think there is even a question at this point as to the parts' viability? Sorry if I'm confused about. Here's their magazine:



And if they took your idea tell them to give you a case of the things for free!!! That seems unethical to me, but Chinese companies rarely resemble anything remotely ethical.

I think we should try to organize a group buy right here right now. Throw my name down at the top of that list, because I want one regardless.

I was contacted today by Ace1Arms and sent this link

http://www.tokyo-model.com.hk/shop/ace-1-arms-kriss-vector-right-hand-magazine-release-for-kwa-kriss-vector-p-10870.html?cPath=1_197_201

I will wait until tomorrow to order since I want to call and verify that it is in-stock. I'll follow up after and let you all know how it goes.

Well mine is in the mail. If you wait, I will review it and let you know. The only concern is the aluminum they used. I dont foresee any issues. Especially since I swapped real polymer housings on my Airsoft Vector and it functions just fine.

Also I will be engraving them with KRISSTALK on them. Or Maglev haha. Oh and depending on the shipping, It will probably be cheaper than $41.

Solscud, you're the man!  I am just getting off work so I wasn't able to get anything done today.  My bad.  

I'll await your review and since I've seen the AWESOME work you do with your laser engraver over on your Facebook page, I think that sounds perfect.  I like the idea of KRISSTALK alot, feels exclusive.  Also, I was just wondering what you meant about the aluminum?  Is the stuff they are using not as good?

I hope it's not just you, the real genius behind this whole thing, and me who are interested in this.  Either way I am still interested in whatever you come up with.

Also, I was wondering if I could ask you about that M1 Garand clip you laser engraved with the 30 ghost clip thing.  Any chance I could get a quote on doing a couple Pmags done up like that?  I literally lol'd when I saw that.
