    Default P2000sk / P30sk magazine capacity?

    Follow on question to my post re. purchasing a used P30sk or a new P2000sk. Is there any way to modify the standard capacity 10 round magazine on either pistol to accept more rounds WITHOUT adding an extended baseplate? Based on what I've seen, the follower looks like it has a significant extension pointing towards the base of the magazine that limits it's capacity to 10 rounds (on each pistol). I'm wondering if that can be trimmed down a bit to allow for an additional round? I know I know, there are potential feeding ramifications to modifying magazines - NOT looking for any lectures. I'm not interested in extended baseplates or higher capacity (regular) P2000 / P30 magazines, as I'd like to keep the profile as small as possible for CCW purposes.
    Thanks in advance.

    some people have reported that they have trimmed the follower and were able to fit 1 more round
    i tried it until the follower was almost flat on the bottom (bought a spare in case it didn't work) and was never able to get another round in

    I did it...have had no issues so far. I did have extra factory parts on hand in case it failed to work reliably.

    I should have asked, about how much did you trim off the follower?

    How do you know how much to alter one component before it negatively effects another component? How much do you trim the follower before the magazine spring is binding, resulting in a shorter life span? I'll bet HK considered the very same thing but decided it wasn't worth it.

    This. Potentially compromising the reliability of a carry gun for an extra round is silly. There's my PSA for the day.

    It is a well known fact that HK mags hold less rounds than competing brand's mags do. HK does this for optimum reliability. I would hesitate modifying something that already works so well.

    That would segway nicely into a "No Compromise".
