    Made 2 extended mag levers for both my CZ 455 and 457 today.
    Made from 6mm x 6mm aluminum bar and used the existing mag lever as a template. They are about 12mm longer that the original one.
    Very easy now to release the mag with your finger.

    That is pretty nifty, nice one!

    Never forget, the end goal is zero firearms of any type.

    Just did a job on my Annie 1710 to clive I bought a new mag release and epoxied an extension onto it, the annie mag release is a disaster to try and work but now there is something to hold on to .

    will try and get pic tomorrow keith, you can make them to any size and shape you want, you have to order the mag release through outdoorsports as you cant get direct from Anschutz.
    I cut the bottom of the release with the cutter blade on the Dremel, it hardened steel and not easy to drill and then epoxied a small bolt into the release and epoxied around it and shaped when hard, primed and sprayed black.
    Magazine retainer part no.003025 for a 1710 is the mag release.
    I think it was €20 including postage

    And here is the Garden Shed where my ideas to invent start. Fully insulated, electric, stat controlled fan heating, reclining chair, and wi-fi. None of the wife's sh!te allow in there ;). 4.8m x 2.4m. 'cos that was the size of the timber.
    I built this as well for about €1200. :):)

    This is the important bit, i notice the wimmens think a shed is just a rest home for junk, that has to sit there before finally getting dumped 2 years later. I know my shed was crammed with all manner of crap, bicycles that no one uses anymore, old rugs, bags of old clothes, rubbish that "Might come in handy sometime".

    As soon as something landed, i took it out of the shed and binned it. The message got through eventually.

    You think that's bad?
    I call our house "the house of much ****e!"

    Try living in a 15 room house with outbuildings with an aul wan who is an utter hamster and hoarder of tat and junk. Something in the war and post-war psyche I think... Keep that you never know when we might need a broken kettle for spares!... End result we chuck out a half dozen broken kettles, none of which are the same brand, make, or remotely compatible, and haven't been made for decades. Apply to furniture, bags,pots&pans or any other domestic appliance.:rolleyes:
    Having that much clutter has turned me into a minimalist since childhood. If it does not work,fix it,or dump it.

    2. added an Anschutz UIT rail to the forend
    3. added mag release extension
    4. added a straighter pistol grip with polymorph.

    I have a guy making me a know your limits (KYL) rack for when the madness ends, and will be trying some long range stuff

    Lovely work V, I like it a lot.
    Is that a boyds stock?


  • Registered Users Posts: 800 ✭✭✭ Wadi14


    its an Anschutz stock, not a lot of them in the world I'd say bought it through egun in Germany, no one doing aftermarket stuff for 1710,s apart from MDT in Canada they have the chassis for 1710, and GRS and prob McMillan but they would be quite expensive.
