Anyone ever see one?
When the ban expires do you think they'll make 'em?

I hope so.

I am sure they will....it is a very popular little gun

Looking at my gun, it doesn't look like you could DO a Hi-cap magazine and still have the slide stop function correctly, at least without dropping the magazine down way below the grip, which looks cheeseball as all hell.

I emailed them and they said the yhave no plans at this time.

There is a post of this type on the rimfirecentral forums, and we have contacted Walther, who told us they were forwqarding it to germany. I think it would be fairly easy to make one that held at least 15-17 rounds with slight redesign. After all, the follower is horribly large in those mags.

I'll bet you your P22 that they won't make HiCaps.

Any takers?

I emailed carl-walther.de and was told: "Due to technical reasons it is not possible" not exactly sure why, looks like there would be plenty of space. Maybe if we are lucky someone will make an aftermarket mag.

Its not possible.

Look at the location of the little "knob" that actuates the slide stop. If they cut the follower way down to allow another 3 or four rounds, the nob would interact with the slide stop before the follower would make it all the way to the top.

I've ordered an extra mag and am looking at how this could be accomplished WITHOUT a slide stop (i.e., remove the little knob on the follower and then grind the follower way down to allow 3 or 4 extra rounds, but once you remove the slide stop you have a problem with the last "click" peening the chamber mouth and screwing up reliability. Unless you are REALLY REALLY good at counting shots.

Also, remember that springs cannot be compressed "all the way" so realistically you'd probably only be able to get maybe 2 extra rounds into a modified mag without compromising mag reliability.

What about just making longer magazines that stick out, ala Glock 17 33rd style? Yes they are unatractive, but still functional. I'd buy one or two for the novelty.
