During the dark days of the ‘94 AWB, I bought a couple of mags with these in them.  In order to remove them, you had to drill out a rivet that prevented the floor plate from being removed.  It was I assume an acceptable way to turn a 20 round mag into a much smaller capacity mag.

At least that is what I recall.

Was this strictly a military/training thing or was this a legal way of turning regular cap mags into low cap mags?

They are spring steel.  I have looked for a source.  They look to be very expensive to make from scratch.  Frankly, I don’t remember how they worked.

Why? They don't make high capacity magazines legal in ban states because they aren't permanent.

5 round magazines a available if your state has a hunting round maximum.
