    So I got these Ace1Arms glock mags and one of them came without the gas route installed. I finally got around to doing maintenance but could not get a roll pin out.

    Right side is a standard pin, left side is a roll pin. I could not get it to move using a roll pin punch and a hammer with moderate force.

    There's a faux valve looking thing up top above the release valve, loosening this does not have any effect.

    Anyone else have these mags? Is there something I'm missing?

    Stop hammering and grab an Allen key. 2mm or 1.5mm can’t remember which this is.

    Was a 1mm hex I think, my 1.5mm was too big. Used a T6 Torx to unscrew. Ace1Arms and Prowin glock mags are identical

    I am not surprised, Airsoft is an inverted pyramid...why pay for tooling when you can just rent someone's for your need.

    Just like all those parts brand for pistols with the same parts...

    Cowcow, Guns Modify, Dynamic Precision...etc. Like cars in the 1980s. One model sold under multiple brands.

    It honestly might be, that’s one of those random wrenches on my table that works for Zenitco junk and random grub screws including ones in that Glock mag lol
