    i see some online places are selling the g20 with a 10rd magazine, which i assume is for places that restrict magazines to 10 or less rounds. how hard is it to convert these magazines to the standard 15rds? can i swap out the spring and be done with it, or does the entire magazine have to be replaced?

    Nearly impossible. You would have to find a way to remove the restricting steel ribs inside the tube. It's a lot easier just to purchase new or used 15-round magazines.

    Glock mags can't be converted from neutered to standard without destroying them. You can POSSIBLY can get one or two more rounds if you use extended base plate like in 30 rounds mags.

    I know a guy with a machine shop that can convert the magazines easily. It only costs a bit more than $200 for each magazine, and he only destroys about a third of them in the process.

    Bear in mind that, even if you could do it, it might not be strictly legal.

    Better off buying the high-cap mags.

    fortunately i don't live in a state that restricts the magazines to 10rds or less. i asked because i saw a 20sf 10rd come up for sale online and wondered why it took several hours for it to disappear from the online inventory list. a 20sf 15rd would've been gone in less than 5 minutes.

    Even with that being the case, modifying a restricted mag to increase the capacity could still be illegal. Wierd but it is a possibility.
