Before I get any crap about a Hesse :p I know I know.The question I have is will a Israeli mag release and spring fit or will I have to dremel?

The Israeli magazine release should fit any metric receiver. A Hesse ? It SHOULD. Maybe.
You may have to play with different springs to get one to work well.

I have one installed on my Hesse FALO-C. You might drop a small appropriately-sized ball bearing in the boss ahead of the spring, like bykerhd sez. Works great! Especially for a southpaw. No more dropped mags while rapid-firing!

You can also use a Colt .45 ACP plunger spring, trimmed a bit to fit.

Thank you for the answers Next question What would cause a Bolt Hold Open device to fuction,intermittently (is new DSA).Did I do some thing incorrectly when I put it in.I noticed that there is a adjustment screw in the DSA and not in the Isreali one.

Check the bolt hold open for any binding in the slot. Also make sure the spring in it is moving freely. I had a couple from Century that were full of bluing salts and crud. Stuck and nasty. A few shots of penetrating oil and a very light warming with a Mapp gas(propane will work) torch repeated a couple times and they were fine. More oil applied, naturally after they cooled. Don't heat them much as you will ruin the spring temper.
