    If I remember correctly, push back the lever plunger and then push up on the Mag well dust cover plunger. Careful it’s under spring pressure.

    OK, I got it to pop up and out ,it needed a push up from the bottom more than I though . I see how the mag.cover
    detent is made with a off set cut that needs to be in the right position to allow it to move up and out. Thank you all for the much needed help .
