I'm looking to get my AR up and running for varminting so just found a need for 5 round mags. Has anyone tried Magpul's 5 round limiter in USGI straight 20 round magazines? Does it work? I'm stuck in a ban state so I can't get new Pmags or I would, and I'm trying to economize by using preban 20 rounders so I can use them at full capacity when not out hunting. Anyone doing this?

You can whittle down a piece of wood. I made one out of a scrap of 1/4" plywood, wide enough to fit inside the spring. Shave it down until it holds 5rds, then round off the edge so it doesn't catch the spring.
I'll post pics later on

Also, check the game laws in your state. Some states have details in the laws about exactly what they will allow for limiters and plugs.
Other states, the issue is the legality of the magazine in general. There is a Hometown forum you may want to visit if a definitive answer does not come up here.

It doesn't have to be permanent here in NY, but it does have to be inside a NY legal magazine in general. Hence the example I know of that I want to try is the USGI 20 round magazine, if I can get some pre-94 ones like those made by Colt.

Tools: saw, vise, rasp.
Bottom cut to match the angle of the bottom of the mag
Top tapered to prevent snagging the spring
Tactical black super ninja operator electrical tape utilized to prevent rattling.

Any way and/or plan to make some that fit USGI mags?
