I have a 5 rounder thats the same length as a 20 rounder it has a metal tab spot welded to the follower. theres no markings on it as to who manufactured it.

I think Armalite makes/made those mags.

Yep. we CAN do it :D


Send a message to "RSSSLVR" he's the dude doing the orders, I'm doing the fabrication.

M1A mags are about $25 for just the mag (for GOOD mags that will work) and figure about $20-25 to modify it.

Please read my post stickied at the top of the 2nd A/Legal/political forum.

This is more concern to OLL fixed mag rifle owners than for M1A dudes, but there is statutory law that such mags must be permanently modified - that is, not restorable.

I don't think simple blocks will cut the mustard, and a solution like rssslvr/JpGLee1's weld-ups must be considered - i.e., in any attempt to restore hicap status, the mag would be destroyed. You wanna stay away from the grey area.

Just don't understand why people always look for high-cap-look-like low-cap magazines. It's purely cosmetic issue. It won't help the performance.

Personally, I prefer sticking with short mags.:)

When using my reg'd AR, I prefer using my 20's than the 30s. Just easier to shoot with.

Those little mags are a lot harder to get in and out of an M1A than the USGI ones.

I understand your point but I find that with the M1's it is just easier to do mag changes with the longer mags.

Take 1 ten round M1A mag, lock it into your M1A, then work a MagPul on as far as it will go. They lock in easier than without the MagPul.

I think that applies for just about ALL the weapon systems out there.

I prefer the longer mags for "hold-ability" during a tacti-cool reload.

The same reason I put a roll of socks in my Speedos. It makes the ''short mag'' look like a ''high cap'' ! :eek: :eek: :eek:

I wasn't sure yesterday, but...

NRA Highpower Rifle
Rule 3.1.1 Service Rifle-U.S. Rifle, Caliber 7.62 min M 14
In all courses and in all positions the 20-round box
magazine or a reduced capacity magazine of the same external dimensions will
be allowed.

I've never seen this rule enforced, but it is there.
