I was a little too ambitious trying to switch my magazine release so it would function for me(lefty). Now, I can't get it back in. With the two clips loaded in the mag release with the spring, i can't figure out how to get it back into the frame.

Please Help!!!

Been a while since I had to mess with that part, but do remember it was a bit of a pain to get it al
igned right to pop in. Here is a link to a thread off the Beretta Forum that should help.

More specifically it will refer you to this link for the specifics on reassembly of the mag catch/release.>>>> http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/6078/recreass.htm

I am a lefty as well and find it works better for me to leave it where it was and just use my trigger finger to activate the release.

FINALLY got it after two hours of banging my head against the wall. I knew there was a way. Finally figured out all you had to do was angle it right, and use leverage to push it in. Thanks for the help guys. I'll be sure to use those diagrams when I attempt to detail strip this beast. BIG BLUE
