    hello everyone!

    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)
    - PENCIL
    - RULER


    [​IMG]

    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.

    but whats sad is that Cali's laws about where you can and cannot carry are more liberal than GA's and if you carried openly with no permit (even unloaded like in Cali) in Ga youd spend a year in jail pretty wild isnt it...but gun control was born out of racism and democrat control in the south....

    it makes them legal. after this mod i can only put 10 rounds into the magazine, and it's not something that can be easily removed. you'd have to drill out the rivets to make them 30's again.

    Chris I think it's just kinda like the same guide lines as migratory bird hunting. The gun can only be able to hold 3 shells. Thats why people put plugs in them. The gun its self can still hold more but its limited
