This community thrives on changing and adapting the Mini to their wants and needs. Lots of you guys don't let the lack of aftermarket parts deter you. Heck look at the tactical mag release, the improvised bolt release, the factory mag feed lip adjustments. I guess that is what bothers me about the disinterest in adapting aftermarket magazines.
well, if it bothers you....keep on keeping on.
like you said, i am amazed by all the people who love the mini & have worked hard to improve them on their own. look at the strut....just idea started by a mini fan, now they hang off 50% of the minis out there and 3-5 companies make them.
such a shame ruger does not love the mini anywhere near as much as the owners!
keep working on it & report back. one day everyone might be buying these mags and using your technique to adapt them. for me, i don't mind buying factory mags cause i don't stockpile a lot of mags. but for many gunowners who like to keep 10+ mags for each gun, a breakthrough on cheap mags could save them serious money!
