    A few of mind mags are leaking, and I just want to know how you would fix them. Also is there a place to purchase gas valves?

    Radar, where are they leaking from? Different leaks have different solutions. If we don't know where the leak is coming from then we can't help you.

    It's from the bottom where the valve is

    Unscrew the fill valve, wrap the threads 2-3 times in teflon tape, screw it back in. That ought to take care of it. If it's leaking from the seam between the bottom plate and the sides of the reservoir, you're going to need to heavy silicone lubricant or white lithium grease to apply to the seal. But my guess is it's the threading in the fill valve and teflon tape will work.

    Sorry if I'm threadjacking, I am having a similar problem with my hfc m9 mags. They seem to be leaking out the top. Do I need to replace the o ring or something?
