I have one of these as well. That dreaded flipper looking piece is ugly as hell and removes the joy of shooting.No problem. There are different ones out there. I'll be switching this out for the ARMaglock Gen 4 and Kingpin. I believe it makes it easier to deal with double feeds. Which I have dealt with on this set up.
Here's why I want to switch to setups.
I pushed out the front take down pin which breaks the action just a bit, but it's not enough to release the mag. Then I squeeze the Quick Pins to break the rear action so the upper can move a bit, then the mag drops which drops one of the stuck rounds. Once it drops, I close it back up, close the front pin, then cycle the charging handle a few times until the other round ejects.
It's not ideal, but it works.
Reno May has a good video on it:
Now, if one doesn't want all this in CA, you can go with a fin grip or another stock that doesn't have a pistol grip and you can retain the standard mag release set up.
