I've worked on my AR by cutting a piece of wood the correct size to fit the mag well. Seemed to work alright. Hey, when you're in the middle of a project you're trying to complete, you get inventive.

I have a Squirrel Daddy that I really like. I bought it off Amazon I think. Used it on my last build and it worked great. http://www.squirreldaddy.com/AR-Lowe...-p/20-101a.htm
