      A closer look this morning shows an oval blind hole that the magazine spring sits in. Its oval towards the right side. This allow the spring to slip out of the notch. Just like a short spring would act. [​IMG] The loaded magazine can hit the magazine release when being inserted.

      Putting the release back in, is from the right side.
      A homemade wood wedge is used to hold the spring fully to the right, before inserting the release. After release is in place, remove the wedge.

      The New model, GX4 has a different magazine release spring.
