minimag barrel question

I picked up a Minimag out of the trash not too long ago in pretty good shape (score! ). I cleaned it up in no time, the main spring inside was rusted, looks like it spent the night outside, and the spring loaded button that holds the barrel was froze up. I have 2 barrels for it and both easily rock a little over that button. It's enough that it knocks it out of alignment with the feed neck and jams up the paint flow. I'm fairly confident that I cleaned up the spring loaded button well and it seems to push back plenty hard enough. It almost looks like the set hole in the barrel is bigger than the button, but two barrels, and one is brand new??? Anybody ever have this problem?

Replace the twist lock pin assembly (button thingy) and the orings on the outside of the barrels and you should be golden. That twist lock assembly needs to be pushed or pressed out of the rail. Use steady force, dont hit it with a hammer and punch.

I used to work for a private community of summer homes. You would be amazed what the rich consider trash. The mag came with 2 cases of paint too, lol.

I can't honestly answer that one, lol. I don't know if I could recognize marbelizer if I saw it. It is in two sealed clear bags of 2000. No boxes. Haven't opened them up. One solid yellow casing and the other solid orange, don't know what they are filled with.
