ToddG said:I tried this back in '09 during my P30 test. I abandoned it because it was far too easy for the extended baseplate to bump forward, binding the spring or even worse coming off and dumping the contents of the magazine.
That looks pretty solid.Well, I got my 140mm magazine back from Higher Capacity. Using a Beretta 92 basepad locking plate, and cutting down the stock follower a little bit, I get 20 rounds--so 20+1. It's pretty tight at 20, so I don't think I'd reload to it in the middle of a stage unless I downloaded it to 19. I'm going to try out a few different springs, but it appears that a factory spring might just work OK. It won't have the service life that you would get out an un-modified mag, but the big-stick mag will only get used on stages where it would be needed, and I can always get more springs.
