ACR J10 Magazine hack for broken plastic latch

Plastic latch broke after a couple of cleans. Found a screw inside that did not appear to have any real purpose. Removed screw, drilled small hole 11mm slightly right if the line and screwed in screw. Give it a couple of extra turns when you hit the nylon that way it will go nicely into the magazine housing. Works for me, as always, mod at own risk. Pictures should give a good idea.


I broke mine first clean!! And have just left them broken, doesn’t seem to have too much effect on anything while in use and less effort to pull apart to clean!
I like your idea though


Tape…just enough to be tight fit

Thanks man. Yeah, will suit some but everyone has their own way of dealing with the pain.
