What are needs to be modified in order to be able to use standard Pmags? I'm not a fan of modifying magazines because you never know when you'll need someone elses mag.
RULE 1: Always modify the cheapest part first! If for some unknown reason you have a hard-on that big for the PMag, just modify the mags. Not picking on you here, but i'd bet 99% of us with butcher a perfectly good lower if we attempted to modify the lower. So many better options exist before hacking at your lower.It's not a collectors piece that I would sit and look at. It's a battle rifle that only earns it's place in my safe by bending to my needs. :0)
Run the HK Maritime Mags and you won't have to modify your rifle or your mags..then simply buy plenty of them so you'll never need to barrow your buddies mags they'll want to barrow from you.What are needs to be modified in order to be able to use standard Pmags?

I don't think anyone is drawing that conclusion. Rather, I think the majority of us (myself, Hunter, Fire, and Holshot) were trying to convey that the effort and risk involved in modifying the rifle directly simply isn't worth it. But in the end, it's your gun to do with as you please.It's just a question. I get the feeling some people are thinking that I'm trying to insult the rifle when it's the opposite. I like it enough to use it to do exactly what I want.
GI mags are OK. Same Lancer L5 AWM mags.Waiting for the new version Pmags to be released.
In the meantime I'll be using a dozen or so HK maritime mags that I collected way before the release of the MR556.
GI mags work as well is that not correct?
No reason to bugger up your new battle rifle...
Correct. When used with the heavier mil-spec "red" or "rust" spring or Wolff XP, loaded with 28 rounds or less, and used in conjunction with Magpul anti-tilt style followers, you have a very cost-effective AND reliable option that will function in any AR lower.GI mags work as well is that not correct?
