If you're making the animation,
you need to have the magazine and the gun models separate. Then make a frame magazine. Link the magazine model to the frame. Moving the frame should move the magazine.

If you're using an fp model with already existing animation, you'll probably have to re-animate it. Or re rig the fp model.

I was about to ask you what you know about this before realising you're MasterChief/Altheros.
So yeah, you dont know what you're talking about.

Op, do you want the magazine to move in FP or 3P ?

Skin modifier, at least two bones/nodes, and link constraints.
Alternatively to the skin modifier you can separate the model like what was said above.

I believe stock model's use the skin modifier to move mesh such as a magazine. Load them up in max with Ghost's GBXModel Importer.
