Has anyone converted Mini-14s to use M16 magazines? Mini-30s to use SKS magazines?

I would think this would be a great idea although I have no idea how practical it would be.

I'm pretty much set on mags for my Mini-14, but I have thought about using AK mags on the 30 since there were never any "good" aftermarket hi-cap mags available. I haven't tried it, but I have tried to do some measuring and it looks like it would be possible if you had access to a mill The area where the mill would be needed is on the sides toward the front of the body. The AK mags use a fairly heavy piece of metal in that area and it looks like it would give you plenty of room to work with. It would be interesting to see if any Mini fans , that happen to machinist have tried any conversions

I think it will pick up as word gets around. The Mini mailing list was slow at first, but it's really starting to come around. It's funny, but I see some of the same names on the Mini list that I see on the AR list.
