Mech mod button removal?
Hey all, I'm wondering about how to remove the fire button from a mech mod. I have an Arra Givo (lovely, LOVELY thing it is with my stainless/brass 13 Heavens 9 Hells on it Smile) and it occurred to me that I don't know if it has a spring loaded or magnetic throw on it, and I wanted to check that. Also, I have a nearly full container of teeny magnets (the kind hobbyists use on trains, wargame miniatures, etc.) and figured I might be able to make my own magnetic switches, but I haven't been able to figure out how to get the button off. Is there a universal procedure or is it sort of dependent on the particular mod? Thanks!

Put it against a steel surface, you'll know if it's magnets or not.. I'm pretty sure it's a spring. It'll need washer style magnets though copper springs work best, magnets aren't the most conducive substance. 
Unscrew the battery contact pin, switch should fall out Smile

good point, yeah i guess it would be externally magnetic too. I can probably make a washer-shaped magnetic thingy out of mini-magnets though, it's worth a shot. How do I unscrew the pin? Is that the small metallic protrusion on the bottom inside the tube? It has a sort of X or cross shape to it, I assume that's to facilitate removal with a screwdriver?

It's a spring bottom and accessible from within the mod tube...
