    you need a TIG welder para maganda kapit. you could try sa mga stainless shops, yun gumagawa ng mga high quality kitchen counters. sometimes we drill a small hole at the end of the crack to prevent the crack from further expanding before welding. :supergrin:

    why don't you use it for dry fire? :) Would you trust a welded magazine in a match?

    To maintain consistency and quality mags are usually machine welded (AKA computer controlled). You will need to find someone that has vast experience welding thin stainless material. If not careful with amperage setting on the welder one could potentially burn right through the mag causing more damage than good. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
