    Hi,

    I was wondering if there are magazines for M9 that has capasity of lets say 20 or more?
    I'm pretty sure that there aren't mags made for Steyr but maybe someone has modified a mag made for some other pistol. I would like to hear comments from someone who has done so.
    (And for your info, I live in a country that allows hi-capasity magazines :wink: )

    nothing without mods.

    S&W sigma mags will hold around 16-17 needs new mag catch cut.
    beretta mags can be modded by would need new mag catch cut and could use something added to the mag so it fits the magwell better.

    only 40sw sigma mags 9mm sigma magazines too thin. some 40sw mags may be tight fit and not drop free smoothly.

    was pondering a jig that has a mag catch adapter in it pop magazine in it then insert into the magwell.

    know anybody with welder or machine tools may be possible to take 2 sigma or steyr mags and join then butt to butt find a new long spring that will fit and try it.

    Actually I have already someone making an extension for a standard 14rnd mag, but I was wondering if they could be bought in ready made shape.

    Let us know how the extension works. Is your friend welding two mag sections together? There are so many 10-rounders out there they must be good for something... :D
    Health & Peace,

    Well, yes and no. This version is made from one 14rnd magazine and the extension is 3d modelled and made from straight metal sheet. The original magazine is cut from the bottom where the pad is connected and the extension is going to be welded there.

    We have also discussed about making the magazine from scratch so it wouldn't need the expensive factory mag as a starting point.

    If you have the means then crank out about 30-40 of those and find a spring that works for whatever length/capacity you settle on. Sell them for about $35. WALA you're the king of the aftermarket steyr mags, end buyers would have to sacrifice their own mags in a cannabilistic ritual for the baseplate and follower.

    By selling it as a mag body and spring as a "kit" you shouldn't have to worry about any kind of regs regararding magazine production. But I'd run that part past a lawyer.

    I don't have plans to start selling the mags right now but you never know :roll:.

    When I have the mags working for me maybe I can take a survey here if anyone is interrested and at what price. Then I would also have to check the legal issues.
