Scissors. :D

I think you mean magazine. Personally I wouldn't do it. IMHO you're far more protected buying either 10/20's or just using a standard 10rd mag. That being said, I would rivet to the 10rd level for the follower and use LOTS of epoxy and fill the bottom.

Permanence is an issue.

What kind of firearm is this for?

Get ahold of rssslvr, he and jpglee can mod your magazine to 10 rounds, I have bought their FAL and AK mags, and they are THE BEST.

FEDUP has been doing FAL mag 10/20's too, but metrics only, if you supply an inch mag I'm sure he'll do it for you.

best way is to take off the floorplate
pull the spring off the follower
holding magazine upside down
place 10 rounds in under the follower
insert a tape measure finding the length of the bottom of the follower to the bottom of magazine(non lip side)
transfer mark outside of magazine and cut it a little longer then figure out a way to mount the floorplate back either bending out or bending in the sides depending on the design

I cut the mag in half and put a trap door on the bottom thanks for the help.
