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

nope, factory release only. Which spring did you break? The updated one or the old one?
Yeah, just have to talk to the right person.. That's a part that does not require the pistol to be sent in.
The original spring is metal, the release button is plastic. New button is metal, and spring is a different design..
