I don't work that cheap! At this point I have more money for things like magazines than I have time! :)

So far I have not had problems finding aftermarket magazines for my Mini 14. I have done as you did with 1911 mags several times. I used to buy the "GI" magazines for $5 and rework them as you are doing. Back then I couldn't afford the good magazines that cost $10.

Good of you to tell others how you made the cheaper magazines function. Many folks don't realize you can often salvage things like magazines with a little elbow grease and determination.:cool:

I guess thats one of the benefits of be old. I have some good mags that were cheap 12 or so years ago. I like the Kasnete though.
