Talon magazine replacement designed to be extra easy to print and assemble. The magazine body is all in one piece, and so is the follower, giving you a grand total of 2 parts to print, and on my medium-speed printer, less than 2 hours of print time.
These do require a constant force spring, commonly supplied as nerf drum spring replacements, to pull the follower along. I got mine at foamblastshop.com. A conventional katana or talon box spring would be fine so long as you add a bottom, but they aren't sold separately so you probably want the constant force spring.
The outer profile of the magazine was entirely taken from Thanlhlon magazines, but the inside profile was dramatically simplified and re-oriented for vertical printing. I also revised the constant force spring anchor to better reflect the springs being currently sold, with more of a squared U bend than a V bend. The follower was swapped for the same follower I use in the kanetana series, which is the same shape (sans spring cavity) as the follower I use as a replacement for kanetanas. It's about 3 times as long as the worker or than version, which allows it to fit loosely without unwanted rotation at the cost of a couple darts capacity.
Vertically printed objects are generally much weaker than horizontally printed objects, but with the right settings you can counter this. In particular, the pathing for 0.5mm nozzles and just 2 perimeters is clean enough for you to massively jack up the flow factor without making a mess or jeopardizing your printer.
This isn't a setting on real printers

I used a 0.5mm nozzle for which the part was heavily optimized. Consider lying to your software and telling it you're using a 0.5mm nozzle if you're stuck with 0.4mm, it works much better than the other way around. There are lots of 1mm and 2mm thick sections that will print much better this way.
Printed with a mere 2 perimeters, this will have a nice profile with minimal travel and plenty of internal space for over-goo. You can MASSIVELY increase flow factor or extrusion multiplier to improve strength with minimal impact on part finish quality, I'm currently pushing 25% MORE plastic into these parts. NO support material is needed, and no significant overhangs are used (you can get away with not having a bed / part fan).
None of this applies to the follower, which will be fine with whatever settings you normally use on your printer.
