APEX release won’t drop mag
« on: July 09, 2019, 12:48:35 PM »
I installed the tactical length apex mag release and it won’t release mag without me pulling it out.

I previously did a polish of the internal contact points and this made a bit of a difference but I wanted a nice smooth release. I bought the apex after reviewing it.

So I did notice that the mag release spring was kind of squished toward the muzzle like it was bent slightly as I removed the OEM release button. Everything went back together with the new part and the mag seats fine. When I hit the release button it seems like something is catching and I have  to push the mag inward and then pull it out.

Oddly. It WILL drop free if the mag is loaded. Not sure if the extra weight or what.

Can the spring and lever arm piece be purchased from CZ? Would that fix things?

Fixed. Flipped over the bent spring so the bad side was in the hole and reassembled . All worked as designed.

I had the spring issue with the factory ambi release.  I think others have posted about it as well.  The Apex is a huge improvement.  My P10c is perfect with it installed.
