JonnesA FX magazine consists of 5 parts, aluminium housing, the actual part that holds the pellets, plexiglass plate, a screw and a spring. The spring has a bended part on both ends, that should go into a tiny hole in the housing and inside the magazine. Once all put together, turn the magazine one full turn (two at most, depending on the quality of the spring), hold the rotating magazine part in place with a screwdriver through the hole where you put the pellet in, put the plexiglass plate back up there and screw it back together. Not much to it. 

There is also a small (.050 keyed) Allen screw inserted from the rear of the mag that butts up against the main cover screw to set the depth and therefore the tension of the cover’s screw against the housing body. This screw is the reason your cover screw has backed out. The Allen screw and the cover screw work together to keep the mag’s cover tension to the housing. Once you have reassembled your mag you will need to set the Allen screw depth so that when the cover screw is tightened against it, you have the proper cover tension. This may take a few tries to get it right. Never tighten the Allen screw! Tighten the cover screw against the Allen screw. This locks the cover screw from backing out. If you still have problems, pm me and I’d be glad to step you through the process.
