    Yes, obviously one magnet in mag and one in stock. Pretty strong magnets to.

    Did you glue or epoxy the magnets in place? Does this secure the mags as well as the Cricket mag holders? Thanks for taking the time to post this cool idea. Wish the Marauders had a place to do something similar. I like how some gun makers incorporate mag holders into their designs as well as aftermarket guys making “bolt on” mag holder options for some platforms as well.

    Great idea with the magnets!  Someone in another thread noted an aftermarket mag holder for the Wildcat, so looked it up on the internet.  Both ideas, separately or combined, could work for the Vulcan:

    Neil, all my marauders are synthetic stock to save weight. My wifes .177 is the only wood stocked marauder in my safes and she might kill me if I touch her gun!! LOL.

    AJ what difference does that make, you could make the cut go all the way through and make an insert with magnets set in it, not that difficult for anyone who knows how to use tools. The wife is another problem, I don’t mess with them, lol.

    The Marauder syn stocks are hollow and not condusive for such modification. The way I would want to do it is not an option with a synthetic marauder stock. Easily done with a wooden stock though.

    I just bought a Vulcan .22 from Charlie at georgiaairguns. He set my Vulcan up to hold to magazines in the stock with magnets. The factory should take note. NO downside.

    AJ it could still be done with a synthetic stock, it is not difficult for someone with the right machinery and a little knowhow. Neil.

    Yes Neil, I have the ability and equipment to make a mag holder on a synthetic marauder stock, but the time and energy is not worth it to me. I think the idea is cool, but not something I would spend the time to do. Mags are just fine in my pocket. I am a fabricator/welder, machinist, and have a very strong engineering background. I have the ability, but not the desire. My posts might have been misleading and apologize for that. Was just intending to make conversation and nothing more.

    Well AJ the only reason I continued with it is because, unlike you, if I were to keep extra mags without having a place to keep them, other than my pocket, it would not take me long to lose them. I have a terrible memory and have a habit of putting things down, and usually only find them again by chance, lol So for me a magazine holder would be well worth the hassle, I actually see it more of something to tackle than something not worth doing, I enjoy challenges. I figured you had a similar background to me so I was having a hard time understanding the lack of interest in doing it, I fully understand now, all the best, Neil.
