Release button for magazine falls out

Postby Flowsho73 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 9:40 pm

The spring for my magazine release keeps coming out of place I've tried to put it back but it keeps moving and the mclip will fall out I get the pin in the button it's self but I can't get the other side to stay where it needs to be is there a easy fix for this or do I need to send it in (this has been happening since I first bought my cx-2)

Sccy revised the mag release spring a very long time ago, by adding a 90° bend to the short leg on the right side.
Perhaps you have an older vintage cpx with the straight-leg spring?
Compare it to the picture on page 30 of the latest manual ...

Also, this same detachment problem has repeated itself on more recent gen 2's with the revised spring.
The exact cause is vague, ranging from improper assembly to perhaps a batch of poorly formed springs.
Members report that the equally vague solution has required a no-charge factory return for repair.
Give Sccy a call. This is another of the persistent design failures of which they are aware.

It's been suggested that a shallow hole on the right side of the frame could help to locate and retain the 90° bend.
It can't hurt to request a new mag release spring, but it may only be sent to you through your local FFL dealer. hth
