You crazy bastard. :ROTFL:

The wrist mounted mag could theoretically work but it would be tricky. Squarehead mags rely on a ball catch and a separate button to release the follower. The trick...

Thanks. As for the VSL having less force than a Rotor, I believe that is the case. The VSL works more like a Spire so the balls aren't under as much pressure. I think that this may be what caused...

The new cam bolt held up okay with the layers going vertically. However, the stress placed on the feed neck itself by the lever caused the layers to separate. It's just too much torque for it to...

Nor do I. So long as the springs are compressed and the ball catch is retracted, they should be pretty simple to load though. It's the mags like the TMC and Helix mags that are tricky to make speed...

Done!

I have to say that I love this design. It holds the tube in place and loads each tube in no time at all. This will make preparing for stock class days so much faster.
