Well.considering theres so many calgunners doing them, im sure you can get someone here to do it cheap.
Go into the gunsmithing section and ask for 1on1 help. Someone will help you.
Also include your location.

Do it yourself, There is plenty videos on youtube. It would be a fun project.

$100-150 normally. It all depends on who is supplying the parts. If you buy them ahead of time, you might get it for a bit less.

Enterprise in Irwindale does it for $50 bucks. Labor only you supply the parts.

I do not know the cost but it really is easy to do yourself. I literally did it with a drill, flat head screw driver and a small punch. Didnt even need a dremel (although it would have been much easier with one)

How did you do the mag catch without a dremel if you don't mind my asking

I didn't have to modify the mag catch. My magazines fit without filing it down.

Did my mag catch with a hand file. Took about 15 minutes. I'd actually rather do it with a hand file because you don't run much risk of taking off too much material.
I did my first conversion in about an hour with a drill, punch, hammer, and a hand file. Super easy with youtube video's.

The only hard part is if your Dremil ain't working and you have to use a hand file ;) Ask me how I know lol
