5.7 mag spring issue

Well was at the end of day one of a class and mag spring broke and mags wouldn't seat. Oh well. Used a sig 229 for day two. Will call FN tomorrow to get a replacement.

However I clearly saw one thing, weak hand shooting only, it was exceptionally hard to drop the mag, again weak hand only., using trigger finger. Is there a way, or third party that makes a mag release for both sides so I can drop either side? Yes in know I can move it to one side or the other. I want both sides availability. Thanks

Mag spring? Is that the spring inside the mag? Or a spring on the gun?
Mag release.
Well that answers my question from my thread on maintenance. Looks like I should pick up some mag springs, and maybe change them out once a year or two.
Not needed. You only need to swap it out if you have the old style spring. :p
