I want to make my own 10 round 50 beowulf mags from 30 round magpul Pmags rebuild kits. I hear they fit 10 and no more, and feed fine without any modifications. Is this legal if I remove the 30 5.56x45 and stamp 10 round 50 beowulf on them?

I forget the post but someone mentioned the idea of modifying the follower flat so any 5.56/223 cartridges would not seat in the magazine. I dont own a .50 beowolf but, if I did I would do so.

Calgunner "Technique" was the one who ground the followers to prevent loading of smaller cartridges.

Pmags 30-rd can hold 10 wulf rounds perfectly. On the newer version, the bullet guide on the mag can be trimmed at 45 degree to make it smoother for wulf loading.

I believe he was doing this for the .458 Socom:

But you can also do it for the .50 Beo

I don't know why people try to mod mags for the Beo. All of my mags, including the crappy Pro-mags worked fine. The only mod I would do is to polish the feedramps.

You don't have to do that, but if you are so inclined I would just buy 10 round Beowulf stamped mags:
http://shop.umlautarms.com/category.sc;jsessionid=D58B1E0BB752F54E9BFA3EDFDF6 AD02C.qscstrfrnt03?categoryId=41

After all they are only $24 each and Lars is a nice guy.

And if you haven't been there yet, you should visit the Beo forum:

+1 for Lars

The problem is they have been out of stock for a while on the 10 Rounders. Midwayusa is supposed to have them soon.

yes you'll be fine.. Here is Beowulf 7 round mag comparison with a pre 2000 30rd mag..

There are (small) differences between the two, but nothing to write home about. You’ll be fine with a 30rd mag as long as you have it when you have your Beowulf..

I think the problem here is manufacturing a hi cap mag!
No matter what you use it for, im sure some DA could say it's a hicap 223 mag??

When I went to see my folks in Arizona I did some mag swapping at the range. The 10 round Beowulf magazine funtioned flawlessly as a 30 round 5.56 mag and the 30 round 5.56 mag functioned perfectly as a 10 round Beowulf mag.

Go to Midway and use the Remind Me function. I just got 4 of the 10 round Beowulf mags in the mail this week. It's taken me about 6 months of patience but I've managed to order them twice. Once from Midway and once from Cheaperthandirt.

The nice thing is that the factory mags come with a documentation, folded up in the ziplock bag they're packed in that may help if you have any LEO problems.

ETA: sorry, I just checked Midway and they're not doing the Remind Me function for the 10 rounders, but they are accepting backorders.

I think you missed my point, I was talking about why people try to mod the mag regardless of capacity. And if people are worried about 10 rounds Beowulf being high caps, they can buy the mags with the Beowulf stamp on them (when in stock).

I have some more of these laser engraved Beowulf mags available in a week:

$28 each shipped. They are 30rd 5.56 mags modified to accommodate 50 Beowulf rounds.

I sleep a lot better at night when I know my mags are marked for a larger caliber, whether its the floor plate or follower. So, my Beowulf, Grendel, 450 Bushmaster mags, while looking like 20 or 30 round 5.56 mags, are clearly 10 round mags for their intended purpose. I have a lot of hicap mags for my registered AKs and ARs, but I don't use them for my newer large caliber ARs.

In my correspondence with the folks at MagPul they state that the .450 Bushmaster and .50 Beowulf will not work in the Pmag due to the center rib in the front of the magazine. The smaller .556 and 6.8 ammo rides on either side of this rib.

I simply pulled the .223 floorplates off of my 10 round .50 Beowulf mags and replaced them with no-caliber marked C-Products floor plates off of my 10 round .223 magazines.

I personally would vote to financially back anyone who gets busted for having .50 Beowulf mags and is charged with having large capacity .223 magazines. I would encourage you to keep your magazines loaded with .50 Beowulf so the only time they are empty is at the range.

If you are really paranoid, buy the .50 Beowulf marked mags. I personally am not going to waste my money.

I can't recall where I got them, but I have a bunch of 10-round Beowulf and Grendel mags that have no markings other than the caliber stamped on the follower. They were a lot cheaper than the AA marked mags. I also have a lot of pre-ban hicaps from my registered rifles that I leave just the way they are to avoid any misunderstanding.
