excuse the flash, I don't know how to make the pic smaller

ruler shows the "length"...depends on which points to measure

Catsupsam...could you possibly give me the width and height of the mag? Most importantly the width. Thanks.

7/8 inch for ruler measured width, of course it's the same as any 10-rounder, if you were to lay two side-by-side, it would measure more then x2, because of the bump under the mag-catch opening.

7 1/4 inches for ruler measured height, has shown in pic, I measured it as if you wanted to check to see what size box you need for storage.

Well yes... I moved out of Cali a few year ago.

I am was in Texas for a while and now I am in Singapore. I came to know a friend in Singapore researching new hi-capacity mag and their government is willing to pay me to just do the drawings.

Used to have an M4 myself but sold it after leaving the states to work in Singapore.
