Bumping the Magnum Millenco
A relatively new lock is out in the UK ,the Millenco Magnum which is made in Chine.
This lock however is known in Israel for at least a couple of years (it’s named Superior in here).
The lock contains 7 pins and a side bar (which has another 4 pins)
There are only 3 heights to each pins.
I’ve sent a few of those locks to friends in England and the lock was picked but it’s not an easy one,it requires lots of patience and it’s quite tricky to pick.
I tried to foil the lock at first but this method will not work in here, and then I first started thinking of making a bump key to this lock.
My first instinct was of course that it can’t work because of the side bar and the pins shape in the plug but I’m a great believer in trying things . Making the groves for the side pins bump key wasn’t so easy at all but I did take some notice to the VW keys patterns I have and decided to try a few and after 5 blanks (the key material is very strong and will ruin cutters on the dimple cutting machine) I manged to bump this lock!
Here is a video on how it’s done.
Here are 2 videos of picking the lock by Mikey and Dark horse.
And Orc and Bill
Also a there is a very good video made by an English locksmith named Jay from Island locksmith LTD.
I don’t know jay personally but I’ve heard many good things about him and judging from his videos he know his work very well (I can’t put his video in here without a permission so you might want look for Millenco Magnum in YouTube.)

The best way to pick the sidebar wafers in the magnum is to use the handle of a thin tension wrench.
Once you have picked the 7 pins the plug will turn slightly
Insert a second tension wrench under all the wafers to the back.
then rotate the wrench so it drops the 4 wafers and they will fall in place.
Its just overlifting them.
I can pick one in 15 seconds using a pick gun to set the main pins
