10 round mags to accept more rounds?
Just asking cause a few 10 rounders are easily converted to 15 or 16.
Thanks

If you do not change the spring is could damage the magazine if fully loaded overtime. Remeber if storing fully loaded mags always store with 2 less rounds it will preserve the springs
longer.

you are incorrect. springs do not weaken by being held compressed. It's the rebounding of the spring that affects it.

Wrong!

I think the spring-wear issue should be on page three of the first-time gun owner's 'everything you need to know that your buddies will lie to you about" manual.

Amen! When you have the major spring manufacturers that cannot decide among themselves if the problem is compression, rebound, or any of the other ideas, one shouldn't try to claim that there is a definitive answer.

No, if you open them up you'll find that the mag body was modified so that the rounds are single stacked. Unless you have a way to open up the mag to original specs, I don't think you can do it.

You are correct. The act of compression itself damaged the spring, not the length of time you left it in the press. That's the argument being presented - repeated compression and decompression of springs is what causes wear, not being left in a compressed (or uncompressed) state for a length of time.

Part of the stipulations of the AWB was that ten round magazines could not be modified to hold more than ten rounds without damaging the magazine itself. Thats why manufactures put dents into mag bodies, permanent fillers etc. Otherwise everyone would have just put a wooden dowel in them (like a shotgun plug) and left it at that. Some would seem like you could but caveat emptor.

Sell your Glock 17 ten round mags to me at a decent price!

I have 3. Two are pratically brand new from CDNN (loaded and unloaded a couple times) and one is a bit used but works just fine.


You want em they're yours. I've IMed you.

i'm pretty sure you could just dremel the rails right out of a glock mag and replace the spring. haven' tried it yet....
