#352868 Stryfe Mag Release Extender

Posted by Cappucino on 19 April 2016 - 05:08 PM

Hi Folks! Today I wanted to get an extended mag release button for my stryfe, but I didn't want to pay a lot for shipping from Hobby Mods. So I made a nice little homemade one! I'm pretty sure someone has done this, but I wanted this to be here for reference. So I present to you, my homemade Stryfe extended mag release button. (I'm not sure if you can do this with other stryfe style mag release blasters, but I'll check on that.)

 

So this is what mag release looks like.

So Start out with your Stock mag release stryfe

Open up your stryfe. (This stryfe is my old modded one)

We will be focusing on this area right here. This is the mag release.

Take out that screw and take these two pieces out.

We do not need this piece. You can put this in your extra parts bin.

Now take this Mechanical Dart Lock out.

This is what it looks like.

Remove the spring on it. And Trash or keep it.

Now you are left with this.

Cut this small nub off with a dremel and some other cutting tool.

Now grab the other piece of the mag release we had before.

Add your choice of adhesive to the green spot. (I used hot glue, but you can use something stronger)

This is what it should look like after

Now place it back into the stryfe

Put the screw back on

Finally, put the other half of the shell back on and screw the stryfe back together.

And there we have it, the homemade, cheap extended mag release! This is my first writeup, so I would like any kind of feedback. Thank You!
