i live in SOcal so my magazines have to be 10 rounds or less. i was about to purchase some 10round magazines but i also wanted the full 30round look. i was shopping around and i found some for $25 a piece made by C Products. the ones already pre-done for you just have a indentation that you can't remove to stop the follower from passing the 10round mark. but how will you clean the magazine or change the spring/ follower if necessary?
while i was shopping i found 30round D&H Industries magazines for $8.99 each. the company i bought them from will ship them to CA as a repair kit, making it legal until you re-build them. so put the rivets in before you re-build them to keep them legal.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 15 BULLETS (test your magazine, to see if it allows more than 10rounds after the DIY)
- DRILL GUN
- 3/16 DRILL BIT (or whatever size rivet you want to use)
- RIVET GUN
- RIVETS (quantity TBD by you, size TBD by you)
SO FAR I HAVE HAD ZERO FEEDING ISSUES. TO CLEAN, CHANGE OUT THE SPRING/ FOLLOWER JUST SIMPLY DRILL OUT THE RIVET, DO YOUR THING, AND POP IN ANOTHER RIVET. THE RIVET SITS ABOUT HALF AN INCH BELOW YOUR MAG WELL SO THERE WON'T BE ANY ISSUES WITH GETTING YOUR MAGAZINE INTO THE MAGWELL. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE LOOK OF A RIVET THERE, PAINT IT or go find black rivets.
