Yes or no?
I'll explain after we get some feedback here 

Hint
They said it can not be done.
They were wrong.

Im guessing the answer is yes since you said "they were wrong".

Eta:  I have no use for one.  I have a dedicated SBR lower I use modified Uzi mags in and I also have a VM Hytec.

Unless you just already have a bunch of 33-round Glock mags, go Colt pattern.  Cheaper, easier to load.

I have an issue with using the plastic body for the mag catch. It won't take long to roll the edges smooth and start dropping mags during firing.

The one I saw an yes it's already out there cuts a slot out of the plastic on the left side of the mag body to act as a catch slot.

Quite a few dedicated Glock lowers on the market. I'm assuming the end goal here is to be able to pop it in and convert to 9mm and go back to standard magwell easily?

Would'nt it just be cheaper to buy a complete lower?  I remember the mag blocks being about $200 ish.

I have an SBR lower and don't want to SBR my Glock mag lower. I'd be interested if for no other reason than to save another $200 on the stamp.

The problem I've seen with most adapters is they can still be finicky and have to be adjusted just right to work properly.  So it becomes more of a pain in the ass to try and remove/replace each time and it becomes a dedicated lower with a mag block.  At that point you might as well just buy one of the half dozen or more dedicated, proven glock lowers already on the market.  Plus the dedicated ones with smaller magwells just look better, IMO.

Ours slides in from the bottom, the org mag release on the lower holds the adapter in place, a separate release on the bottom of the adapter releases
the 9mm Mag.
Literally takes 2 seconds to install  

Thinking about installing a bullet button so people don't release the adapter by mistake?

For an SBR lower with tax stamp it would be nice to be able to change it to multiple calibers instead of being stuck with a dedicated Glock mag lower.

I'd rather get a PSA glock lower for $99 shipped.  Seems short sighted to want a mag block these days with dedicated lowers being so cheap.

You've got to remove the mag block and switch buffers everytime you want to switch calibers.  Might as well just stamp another lower and not screw with switching back and forth.

Makes sense for those who need/want that for a single lower. Is it the market large enough to be worthwhile? Genuine curiosity by the way, not being a GD contrarian or shitting on your idea/work. Seems most people just build lowers nowadays since they're so plentiful and cheap.

We finished 6 prototypes and have not done the calculations on machine time and materials.
I was so damned excited to shoot it,  of course I torture tested it on full auto too.
No pricing yet, and even if I had it I can't really do much here until I get with Juan and get my advertiser status squared away.

Well I wish you luck.  It'll be interesting to see how it works.  

I'll admit I'm not the target market.  When you've already got a complete upper plus spending however much for a magwell adapter I don't see the point in not just finishing out another gun.   Even if it means another tax stamp for yet another dedicated caliber SBR.  I understand I'm probably in the minority though.

Anyone remember the socom block?  Adapts an AR lower to accept the Sten mag for use with the Oly 9mm upper.  Works exactly like you described.  I have one, it works great BUT some people cannot adapt to the change in manual of arms and would drop the mag and socom block.

eta The bullet button could potentially make it illegal in CA.  Unless the shooter registered it as a fucking bullet button assault weapon.  I couldn't make this shit up.

The one you claim already exists does not in fact exist to the public.
Just the fact you have to use a sleeve and cut all your Glock mags makes theirs inferior to ours , other reasons too, but you'll see it soon enough.
Ours is milled from metal too, I can have a mold build and make them out of plastic for a lot less but after my experiences with pro mag mag blocks , no thank you.

I'm sorry, OP, I misunderstood your first post.  I didn't realize you had actually made this, I didn't mean to sound like I was shitting on it.  I thought you were asking for opinions.  

If you got one to work, good for you, probably wasn't easy.  I hope you sell a million.]

I don't know how many of that 4k will buy but it still seemed doable.
I got stuck on the 9mm mag release part so I hired this ultra sharp MIT grad student who knocked it out of the park.
You don't always have to be the smartest guy in the room, just know when to hire the smartest guy in the room LOL
