Have my new B22, boy does it shoot! Couple more magazines coming from Natchez. Has anybody had good luck making these magazines easier to load? What a pain in the but. Thanks for any forth coming advice.

The mags come from the factory with ONE full 360 degree turn of preload.

I have disassembled all of mine, and have reduced preload to ONE HALF of one turn. Each mag (I have five of them) has been flawless this way, and are a lot easier to load. YMMV

Is their a special way to disassemble the B22 mags? I would like to loosen up the mag spring but don't want to mess it up and not be able to put it back together. I've taken Ruger mags apart no problem, don't know how similar these are. I looked on YouTube but came up with nothing.

All you need is a screwdriver. It's a 'center keyed, captive coil spring' between the two halves. Remove all four screws while holding the two halves together, pull the two halves apart about an 1/8 inch, you'll feel the spring tension, then twist the two halves slowly to unwind the spring tension. If you mess up and release the spring tension 'all at once' it won't hurt anything, so don't worry about that, just don't let the four screws go flying around....

Thank you, I figured it out and very easy to do. 1/2 turn works much better and they load way easier now, much appreciated. Now I need to buy more mags!
