Molon Labe® AR15 Magazine Catch Video
While most of you will already know this, not everyone does, so I am adding this section and the video below. The magazine catch is part of the firearm, not part of the magazine. A magazine consists of 4 parts: the magazine body, magazine follower, magazine spring, and the magazine floor plate.
Since the magazine catch is part of the firearm (and just about every firearm has a magazine catch) it is not restricted by any State level magazine regulations and is legal in all 50 states. It does not couple magazines together or increase the capacity of the magazine.
Molon Labe® AR15 Magazine Catch Assembly
PARTS: magazine catch, magazine catch spring, magazine button
TOOLS: 5/32" roll pin punch, or other small diameter tool.
►Install magazine catch into recess on left of receiver.
►Install spring onto threaded portion of magazine catch from the right side of receiver.
►Screw button onto threaded portion of magazine catch 3 or 4 turns.
►Use a punch (larger than hole in magazine button) or wooden dowel to push in the magazine button so you can turn the magazine catch clockwise until the end of the catch is flush with the magazine button head. You can hold the receiver and press the punch against the table to do this, but put something between the punch and the magazine catch button to prevent marking it. Do this step first, as it will prevent the bolt catch from getting in the way as you turn the magazine catch into place.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO SCRATCH THE RECEIVER ON THIS STEP!
Take special care when turning the magazine catch to avoid rubbing against the hump around the bolt catch.
►Check that depressing the magazine release button will push the magazine catch out of the magazine well in the lower receiver.
►Spring will return magazine catch to engage in magazine well.
