I have an RM-380 which is just over a year old with a low round count. On Thursday when changing mags the mag would not lock into the gun. Turned the gun sideways and the magazine release button fell out of the gun. It will go in from either side and will fall out from either side. First time that I have ever seen one do that. Will call Remington tomorrow. A little disappointed. :?

Contacted them on Monday. Received the shipping package/directions today. So far so good.

OK...not sending it back at this time. Went to the shop where I bought the little pistol and looked at another one. Figured out how the release was held in by a spring. While holding the magazine button in the correct position I pushed down on the spring with a plastic dowel and it clicked into place. Seems to have solved the problem. Can't say it won't happen again but for now it's good.

I just had this happen on my new, unfired RM380. The mag release button and the spring are in my hand, but it is not obvious what i might do to reinstall? Any hints, photos or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Did you do this from the outside or the inside? I'm curious also just in case it happens to mine. Seems like a simple, 2 minute fix!
