I Modified a Clip to Hold Seven Rounds

Post by Duo_Z » May 31st, 2012, 1:14 pm

Just like the title, I made a standard P-64 clip hold 7 rounds. I will be testing it later today, I will let you know how it goes. :wink:

I'm not planning on modding my mags, I'm just curious.

What was done?

they shorten the part of the follower that goes down inside the mag the width of a bullet

OK, sorry it took so long, the day I was going to test it I left the clip at work. It works to a certain extent. It hold 7 rounds, it cycles, so far no problems there. But it doesn't have enough push to hold the slide lock up. So I will be reworking the spring a little and see what I can get. You do have to shorten the follower a little, but not by the diameter of the bullet dimension. You have to shorten the spring also, I can't remember by how many coils I took off. But I think I have a better idea for that, I will continue my tinkering and testing and let you all know.

I am very prone to take on weird projects and things that really end up being gee-wiz type stuff. While it would be good to do just for the heck of it, I think it's a lot of effort just to get one more round to fit. If it came to compromising the function of the magazine then it's probably not worth it. I guess that's why it's okay if one person decides to take on a project then he can let everyone else know whether it was a success, half-success (ie, not worth the trouble), or a waste of time. Good luck.

I have done this with a pair of CZ-52 mags. It works fine but I expect to have to replace the mag springs sooner than had I not.

Somebody should modify the grips and open up the bottom of the frame to allow a double-stacked mag :D
