    Can anyone help with a question regarding increasing the capacity of the model 52 magazine capacity from 5 to 6?
    I have read statements saying that it is an easy thing to convert and I have also read in a shooting magazine article, that the only successful conversion was done in house at S & W and they are not for sale.
    When looking at the clip, it would seem an easy job to simply deepen the slots on the sides that form the track that the follower runs in about .300.
    But I am afraid that seems too easy, any help out there.
    Thanks
