Zeta mag maintenance (spring troubleshooting and release mod)
 
ULTRA FAST UPDATE!!


Post #3 has the email response and a quick mod along with the spring troubleshooting video that Stark's support team and Wash provided. Thanks to those involved it was a quick fix. I was about to tear it apart when my email alert went off, so I checked here and my email and vóila, fixed.


----------------------



So, one of my zeta mags decided do screw up on me. Using the given rod, I applied enough pressure to lock the follower down. I didn't notice any negative feedback from the spring. Now it locked up on me. I can see the spring has somehow tangled itself.

Wanted to pick the mcb brain just before I contact their support. I'd like to solve this without sending it in, which I think shouldn't be necessary since it screws apart. Have any of you experienced this or managed to dis-assemble one of the mags? Thanks all.

Lol thanks. Support just sent me that and it helped a lot. No joke, those springs are picky and need some gentle lovin'. My mag is up and running again. Thanks Wash, and thanks to the Stark support team.




EDIT: here's the email -

We do not recommend taking the ZetaMag apart. It has a lot of parts under tension and you will not be able to get it back together, if you do so. We do however have a couple service videos, that will be able to help you. The first video is to service your spring and the second is a Quick Mod Follower release video, both will be of service to you. Thank you for your time and let us know if you need any more help.
