    I was loading the magazine into my .22 Compact Maverick and a very small o-ring fell out, presumably from the breach, but I really don't know where it came from. The outside diameter is about 3.5-4 mm and the i.d. is about 1.5-2mm.

    How it happened??- I noticed the cocking lever wouldn't close so I backed out the magazine and re-inserted it. That's when I saw the o-ring.

    Any ideas?…….. as I am thinking it is an o-ring that seals the breach but it looks too small for a pellet to pass thru, so……I'm a little goose about taking the gun apart, but have watched  the "how-to's" on YouTube so I'm thinking I can manage it.

    Help! any suggestions would be appreciated.

    It looks like the o ring on the outside of your magazine, on the cover plate

    That's what I was thinking too.

    Exactly, mine fell out and I put a light dab of glue to hold it place and have had zero issues since then.

    Not to hijack this thread,  but can anyone tell me what purpose that small oring serves on an fx magazine? Does it help help stabilize the mag when it's inserted  into a rifle?

    It's on Wildcat mags as well. Falls out easily. Glue does the job of keeping it in. I ordered a pack of 5mm o rings on Amazon as replacements.

    I would believe it is for that purpose; stability to keep the magazine from shifting especially when you cock the rifle and the probe isn't holding the magazine in place…

    It adds tension to keep the magazine from falling out when you pull back to cock the gun. The magazine push in at a slight up angle. The o-ring keeps it in place when the pellet probe is all the way back during cocking cycle.

    Thanks folks! Really appreciate the help! I never noticed it on the magazine before………glue works and a little silicone oil after.

    Thanks again!!

    This magazine is also used on different rifles and I've found the hard way the space in the breach is different in all the guns, just a small amount but enough for my 3d print magazine designed for the Maverick don't fit the dreamline… Solution was, add the oring and make my mag smaller, the Oring also helps with these small tolerance changes across the different guns

    I lost one from a .22 magazine also. Can someone tell us what size o-ring this is and the best place to buy them? Thank you!
