Anyone experimented with a 3 Rd Mag

Postby Buckeye45 » Fri May 26, 2017 10:10 am

Hey all, have been playing with the 2 uppers I've acquired and got to thinking about hunting season. My one build is going in the direction of light sleek low drag type set up and noticed the old 10 Rd mag I had laying on the bench. Has anyone ever converted one of these for the 450? If so how did it work? My line of thought is we can only have 3 rounds in the rifle, so a 3 shot short mag would be ideal. I could even go for 2 rounds in the case I shot the gun dry for and need a kill shot. After all these years I admit I still get buck fever. Thanks for any feedback.

I'm in the process of working on a 3 round mag right now. While the 5 round factory mag works fine, it uses a 20 round, 556 body. In NY state we are restricted to 10 round magazines. I don't want a LEO to see the factory mag and start throwing hypotheticals at be about turning it into a 20 round , 556.
I used a blue follower and used a vise to adjust the mag lips a little. I'll shoot it later in the week to see how reliable it is. This will eventually be a fixed mag rifle that won't readily be removable. I'm using it for hunting so I can't imagine needing more than 3 rounds.
