Enough from the peanut gallery...
Reinstalling a factory fixed magazine requires removal of the trigger group. Their is a button behind the trigger guard. Push it in hard at about 45 degrees "toward the chamber". The trigger group will pop free and rock out of position. Install the fixed mag and reinstall the trigger group.
