    Just saw a video of a chap @ Knob Creek using a converted G17 with a stock. Don't care about F/A, (not legal here in IL) don't want stock, but it was equiped with what appeared to be a Beta mag as would be used on an MP-5 or a M-16.
    Does anyone know who mfgr. is or where it can be found ?

    thanks !

    They are home-made one-offs.

    That would take some careful fabrication. Do any plans exist ? And if so where and how much $$$ for a plan set.

    My own "home workshop" capabilities include Bridgeport mill, horizontal mill, shear, press brake, punch press, TIG, MIG, ARC (rod) & oxy-acytelene gas welding, 10"x42" lathe, multiple drill presses, plus the usual hand tools acquired over about 47 yrs of metal fabrication. Started doing this crap when I was about 8 yrs. old & dad taught me to weld. Never have really worried where the next meal was coming from !
    Oh, I almost forgot the 6HP compressor with about 150 gal of tank attached to it.


    Like I asked, any plan sets ?

    thanks,
    uncle

    If you start out with a PPSh-41 71rd drum & a glock mag,I think you will be able to come up with something that will work. Good luck:cool:

    An individual on another website was building them but I don't recall what his handle was. I believe it was on subguns.com.

    Thanks guys... & thanks for the vote of confidence UZIFORME !
    In all reality, it's harder to make a mag from scratch (that works) than it is to build the gun itself. I already have a couple of "almost" mags for my Pasadena AutoMag. They fit, & they kinda, but not all the time, work.

    I'll check on subguns.com. A friend is a member & has a memory for everything.


    thanks again,
    uncle
