Homemaking an AR15 and Hi cap mags. Ideas welcome.
I started a thread, about making USGI mags at home. [URL]http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_1_5/1407548_Is_it_possible_to_stamp_our_own_Mags_.html[/URL]
I played with the Idea of using a CNC machine to make a rollsroyce of an ATF follower out of solid aluminum. I guessed that would be sweet like the old Vietnam 20 rounders with an Aluminum follower.
Making a 20 round straight wall mag would be easier than making a 30 round curved one.
But what about a 25 or 30 round straight wall magazine? I know curvature is needed for reliable feeding. But what if you create a more aggressive slant on the bottom of a straight wall magazine to accommodate the changing geometry of 30 bundled rounds in a straight wall mag?
The idea is to make a simple, inexpensive, easy to make AR15 and magazine. It can be ugly as sin. as long as it is reliable and works. who cares?
I want everyone on ARFCOM to pitch in. If you work with CNC, work in the art of sheet metal. are in the trade post you're experiences suggestions etc. Seeing how AR15's and mags are unavailable. lets be creative to fill the void.
So far i've drawn these up.
