Does anyone know just how the magazine catch on a DES-69 comes out of the frame? I can't tell for sure from what diagrams I can find.

I bought one a while back, had a set of Andrew Berryhill's 3-D grips made, then worked with a local gunsmith to create a scope mount. Went to the range to sight it in today, and found that the 2 magazines will not stay in the gun. It appears the release does not protrude into the frame far enough to hold the magazine securely.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Been about 20 years since I had one, but I'm sure the button just unscrews.

J.........

You were correct, it just unscrewed, although it wasn't happy about it....... A friend and I modified the piece that holds the magazine in place and now it works fine.

Many thanks.

How are things in Kiwi land?
