    my 45 cal hi cap mags can accomodate 14 rounds, 15rnds kung pipilitin.

    is there a way to increase the capacity while still using the orig mag tubes?

    spring and follwer combo ba? basepads?

    syempre dapat ipsc-legal pa rin.

    ano po maganda and magkano po?

    saan nakakabili?

    salamat po.

    Try true weight. They're the only ones I've seen so far that have followers, springs, and all other related items for increasing mag capacity, AFAIK.

    Arredondo follower at wolff na +10% spring. Leave 11 coils sa spring, makaka-squeeze in ka pa siguro ng mga 2 more rounds, depending on your basepad profile.

    Kung naka mecgar ka at meron ka ng arredondo na nabili, pede mo nipisan yung mecgar follower. Keep the profile ng follower the same but make it very thin. Start thinning down the follower from the top and don't cut coils sa mecgar spring.

    When it gets very thin, you'll need to disable the area that contacts the slide stop. Otherwise, mag la-lock yan kahit mey bala pa sa mag kasi yung follower masyado ng mataas sa top ng mag. If you screw the follower, then good thing mey arredondo ka na. ;)

    Kaso if it's running na ngayon, I suggest you leave it be na lang at practice ka na lang sa mag change mo.

    But I have a feeling you're like me,... so go for it...:supergrin: :tongueout: hehehe

    i started ipsc with a hi-cap .45 bul m5. mag capacity ko was 16rds with mecgar tubes and tp base pads.

    try mo suggestions ni mco. arredondo or mecgar followers, wolff +10% springs or ismi springs cut with 3 coils sticking out the tube, tp basepads or other custom pads.

    meron ka palang hi-cap, jefe? bagong toy? ipapa-customize mo pa?
    ipa-flat top mo slide with the bomar sunked deep sa slide, custom fo front sight, then custom magwell. yung basepads can be made for max capacity. kaya siguro 17 rds max, that is all you can go with a .45cal. kung .40, kaya yan 20 rds with the same mods.

    hey doc e.c.,

    got the lower assembly from a friend who left the country.

    kumpleto ang pang-ibaba at may apat na mags na kasama.

    ime-mate ko sa upper asembly ng single stack ko.

    ikinabit ko kagabi, pumasok naman. kelangan lang ng fitting dahil parang maracas sa kalog.

    di ko pa nga nate-test fire.

    the mags seem tired. parang di na kaya itulak yung mga panghuling rounds, though i cant be sure until i test fire.

    but initially, parang lugi sa 14 or 15 rounds.

    just trying to see kung may way to increase the capacity tutal mukang kailangan na palitan ang springs.

    susundin ko ang suggestions ni boss-idol Mco.

    saan po ba mahahanap ang mga basepads, followers at spring na yan?

    meron ba tinda dito, chief?

    syanga pala, doc e.c.,

    naipakabit ko na yung night sights kaso completely dead na yung front. yung rear naman malabong-malabo na rin. pero ang gwapo ng profile. :)

    just tell me when you want them back para maipa-uninstall ko.

    since papa-fit mo rin upper assembly, huwag ka na mag hicap .45cal. invest ka na lang ng .40cal slide, barrel and 3 mags. 4 mags ideal pero ok na 3 to start with. dami mo pwedeng gawin dyan. si mco nakabili ng sam slide 4500 and 9mx armscor bull barrel 3500. ask mo kung pwede umorder ng sam slide na bare without serrations and stirrup cut. tapos pa longdust cover or tactical style with light rail parang ganito pagawa mo. panglaro, pang bahay. new project for the new year.

    dec. 29 or 30 lalaro BoGs sa Karingal. sama kayo.

    pwede convert lumang 45 cal mags to 40cal?

    i called up armscor, 2.4k ang 40cal bull barrel, 6.9k and slide.

    plus rear sight, front sight, fpin, fpin stop, extractor, ejector, new mag springs, new mag basepads...

    abot kaya 20k including gunsmithing?

    hehehehe. pag payo ko susundin mo, you will surely spend less and enjoy your pistol more! mecgar mags are not that expensive. sell the .45 hicap mags then get .40 mecgars.

    tapos make it a medium or long term project, mga hanggang june-july next year. tamang tama tapos na after the gun ban! get the barrel first then think if you'll use armscor or sam or sps or sti slide.

    regarding the small parts, tulungan ka namin humanap ng murang premium parts. tapos all black or 2-tone olive drab frame and black chrome top! ninjang-ninja dating!

    syete! kakatakot isipin how it will turn out! kaw nga artist dito di ba? gawan natin kwento yang ala sti tactical pistol mo! hahahaha!

    :banana: :supergrin: :thumbsup:

    ganda nga all black, doc e.c.

    ano kaya itsura ng long dust na may tac rail?

    baka lang di na bagay yung sti magwell, di na tactical ang dating.

    actually, pinagiisipan ko kung palagyan ko ng tac rail yung ParaOrd ko. para bumigat ng konti muzzle end to help control recoil. Maganda rin dating, kaso hindi na kakasya sa blade tech owb holster kung sakali. Na ubusan ako reloads for the open gun so balik standard pistol the last 2 matches, so far ok naman. hindi ko pa nakakalimutan paano gumamit ng front sight! hahaha!

    ganda nitong desert tan Para Nite Tac!
