Broken FsN Magazine Feed Lip Fix or Prevent it.

Broken FsN Magazine Feed Lip Fix or Prevent it.

Have an expensive FsN with chipped or broken feed lips?

Had to stick it off to the side since FNH will only sell you an entire magazine?

Have a new magazine that you do not want to chip?


Well EA has a fix,

EA Magazine Protector.

With these small clips in place you will keep from chipping your magazines feed lips or more importantly for just a few bucks bring that chipped magazine back into service.

Here is what they look like installed on a new magazine,

I thought feed lips were the part that holds the round in the mag.

The front section is also considered part of the feed lip since they feed rounds in also and keep double feeds from happening. We have not settled on price yet. One of the things we are going to do is include three of them with our three extra power magazine spring package.

They don't seem like much but they cost a decent amount since I had to pay for a custom break press die to makes them. They will still be substantially cheaper then a magazine.

Wow, nicely done Jay! Why don't you go ahead and just do a whole redesign of the 5.7x28 weapon family? :p

Wish these had been announced a week ago!

I would have ordered 5 of them along with the recoil spring.

There is something about paying more for shipping than the item I am buying that rubs me the wrong way...

well, I was at a combating handgun course last month and had three double feeds, each with a different mag. other than those three the rest worked fine (the instructor was a bit surprised when I just dumped the mag and loaded the next in, he told me later he didn't think I would do that instead of playing with the rounds)

anyway, it wasn't until today when I decided to use the "tactical search" to see in someone else had the problem.......and so I checked my other mags and gee, the good ones had the lip covers.......

moral of the story you might ask? get more lip covers :)

Did I install those for you? If I did your magazine bases will have small silver dots on them so you can track them.
