Title: Repair damaged magazine?
Post by: Rummy on May 25, 2011, 11:42:48 AM
I have a Tokyo marui Glock 26 GBB pistol for training purposes.
I dropped the magazine and it bent the feed out of true so you that the airsoft bbs will no longer fit through the hole.

Is it possible to find repair parts?
I think this model has been discontinued?
I ordered the pistol from overseas, is there a domestic source for the replacement parts?

Is the only option to buy a $40+ replacement magazine?
Is there a less expensive vendor, used or new available?

That's a tough one.

No replacement parts that I know off as far as the body and feed lips. I've had that happen and I have very, very - did I mention VERY? - carefully bent the lip back as best I can get it, then taken a drill bit and HAND reamed it back to size.

Its an old post but I will help out as this is a common problem.

What works with our rental fleet is you need to straighten out the feed lips as best as possible.
Then..
You may need to redrill out the hole. What this will do is get rid of the warping that happens when the feed lips get bent,
Use a 7/32 drill bit

Now this is a delicate procedure not enough and it won't work, too much and it will no longer hold the ball.
This surgery best done with a magazine that you have tried everything else with first.
