mini 30 mag issue
i thought i posted this yesterday but i can't find the thread or find it under my latest posts. i apologize if its a duplicate.
i picked up a ten round mini 30 mag yesterday. what appealed to me is that in the democratic republic of new yorkistan ten round mage are the word of the day unless they are preban. unable to find preban 20's this puppy is 20 round size but only hold ten rounds. nice banana ak shape just smaller. no block on the bottom or signs of monkeying cutting down another mag. seemed all well and good.
popped it in my puppy. engaged easily but the slightest tap on the back and out she came. i figured it was obviously the locking "lug" on the back. easily resolved i figured. weld a bit more material. file smooth. drive home safely. no dice. i took the caliper to it. lug is same size as the mags that lock in tight. front hole is in same spot. same diameter.
what gives? any advise is much appreciated. i believe it says usa magazines or american on the bottom of the floor plate but don't hold me to it.
My doom has come upon me; let me not then die ingloriously and without a struggle, but let me first do some great thing that shall be told among men hereafter.
