Yes, got the idea from USGuy (on this forum) in 2019 (I really like his carbon wrapping)... For a reason or another, the water bottle thickness is my neck of the wood isn't the same as his.
- Ended up using some plastic from yogourt containers.

Rough up the finish on the magazine and plastic with a sanding disk, some adhesive (I like PC-7 2-Part epoxy) and wait for it to cure (I put them in a small vise)
- File the notch at the front.

Mine has been 100% reliable
I wanted some 10rds magazines to use the BB in a Appleseed match... The Covid got in the way...
