View Full Version : Quick noob magazine spring question

02-19-2008, 7:05 PM
Replacing magazine spring and didn't pay attention to how the old one came out. One end of my magazine spring is coiled as normal and the other end is coiled into a loop half way through the bend. Which side goes agains the C-plate?

I don't know what a c-plate is, but if you are talking about an AR magazine the loop end goes with the follower.

Yes I meant the follower and thanks, got that fixed. Next question. I just got these C Products 10/30 mags from 44mag.com and took them apart to see how they were limited to 10 rounds. It turns out that there are just two little punch outs on the thin sides of the mag which is bent inward to limit how far the follower can travel. All one would have to do to make it a 30rnd mag is bend the tabs back flush. These mags dont seem to be permanently altered. Will I get in trouble for using them?
