Okay, maybe this is well known, but I’ve never seen mention of it anywhere. I noticed this the other day while writing up a review on the KJW M9. You can actually flip the mag release to the right side of the gun for lefties. It’s quite simple and only requires a screwdriver, and knowing the difference between your left and right, and clockwise and counterclockwise.
Remove the two screws that hold the grip plates in place. They are circled in orange in the following picture:
After removing them from both sides you’ll have this:
When you take out the left side grip plate you need to watch for two things. One is this piece:
and the spring that is inside of it.
Put the left side grip back on.
Put the release back in, only this time from the right side, making sure that the button is facing the right side
Replace the right side grip plate.
And you’re done!
