He are the picture that I promised regarding the blocking of M14/M1A mags to 5 rounds. You will see an ordinary mag follower, a modified one and one from a norinco M1A mag

Very cool. I really appreciate it.

This makes things a lot easier as all one has to do is swap out the followers. Just keep a set of USGI followers handy in case you need them. I can also make a set of California followers (10rnd) and just swap them around when needed. That way I only need to pack around one set of mag bodies.

Simple solution to an ever increasingly difficult problem.

Hmmm. I don't live in a 10rd state but I'll bet that your idea could be adapted to other hi-cap mags too.

Thanks Garand!

Yes, thank you. Every bit of information is stored away not only hard copy but in my mind.

(Not sure you were talking to me but I opened my cyber-trap anyway :D: )

Yes I was directing that to you.:) The 20 rd mags to 5 rd were very easy also.
-Insert mag into rifle, mark the back of the mag were the mag well and mag meet;
- remove mag base plate, use duct tape to hold spring in place
- insert 5 dummy rds, insert mag back into rifle, bolt closed (VERY IMPORTANT);
- insert 1/4" steel weld rod into back of magazine through the bottom, mark the weld rod
- remove rod and cut to length;
-drill 2 holes into back of mag below where the mag sits in the well;
- insert rod and mark;
- drill rod;
-replace in mag and pop rivet back in place

The magazine then fulfills the gov't requirements for the magazine to be not "easily" reverted.
