Yeah that's what I thought. I ordered some from HKparts as soon as they were in stock on their site. Charged my credit card and after a week I called to check on the mags and was told that they oversold the mags. So, I asked since the rebuild mag body was the exact part number for the full size and the compact, would the compact mags work. I was told that they would not. Thanks for letting us know.
Well, HKparts came through with the mags. Good on them.
They told me the 10 round compact would not work. I know they wouldn't with the bottoms. But it is the same body. No problem as the mags are on the way. I ordered some 10 round compact mags from another source and will report back when all is tested.
Well, my hat is off to HKParts for being creative or reading this post. I got my mags today from HKParts and it appears they did what I am planning to do to make some more mags. It is evident that they took the floorplates off of some compact 10rd mags and replace them with the regular floorplates. Even the bags the mags came in had the compact number and you can see the line on the mag body where the compact floor plates were at. It's all good because they found the mags I needed.
where can you get the mag base plates for the HK45? This sounds like a great idea and I am SO GLAD I happened upon this thread since I have been looking for mags since I got the HK45 and everyone is out of stock or asking 70+ for them ... thanks!
