Automag Questions

I have two questions concerning my new 'Mag.

Firstly is whether there was thread sealant used in the vertical ASA's? I can't get it off by hand. Is there any risks in putting it in hot water? And just to make sure, I only have to remove this screw?



And second, if I wanted to smoothe out these marks around the feed port, would I just use sandpaper? Or is there something more effective at this?




I plan on putting a feedgate, and either cram and jam it, or a springfeed. A smoothe surface would help make it secure. Any advice for attaching the feedblock? JB weld, superglue?

Thanks for any help.

You can use hot water on the rail and vert ASA and you are correct, there is just the one screw. Whether or not there is some sort of sealant on there depends on the previous owner, normally people don't put it on, but who knows.

I dont know if there was sealant used from the factory on the VA's but i know i have gotten a mag or two where someone had used locktight after the fact. A little heat is not going to hurt anything and is worth a shot. Yes, you only need to remove that screw.

As for the body i used a little grinding wheel on mine.. but if you are going to JB weld anyhow a rough surface is actually to your benefit!

Thanks for the help, V asa is off.

So, what product would you recommend to attach the feedgate?

I'm thinking reverse mounted, so I have room to make a longer feed and still have options to change the air setup. It's even flush with the end of the body

So, it held the feedgate well, no wobbles?

And I imagine this doesn't come off easily. If I misalign it, will I have the time to adjust it? (From what I've read, there are a couple types, but lets say I used the 24 hour in this scenario)

JB Weld is an epoxy, so once you apply it you should have plenty of time to get it in the right spot. There will be NO wobble, it held the feedgate on mine rock solid. I recently sold that mag to Fatalis here on MCB, i think he is actually removing the feedgate... you could ask him how hard it is to get off which would give you an idea of how strong the connection is?

Good luck! be sure to post progress pics!

Just make sure to clamp or fix the parts in place while the epoxy cures. I've walked away from epoxy'ing parts together only to find out they fell out of alignment and cured not as intended.

That's good advice...I hadn`t thought of it. I assume some cord would be able to keep it aligned, if I can't find a clamp.

Now, to get one of these 13$ stocks :
Norinco SKS Spike Cut Stock

And put it all together with a springfeed. If it works, it will be nice. Does Stuffy still sell lengths of spring?
