    The guns LOOK very similar in shape. Designed by the same guy. Just wondered if anyone has been able to test their mags?

    I have had a person try it that was looking into it they work the same as if you do the mod with the Smith and Wesson M and P mags you will need to re cut the mag release window

    I've got a Canik TP9Sfx and the magazines are close. The mag release window would need work, but the Mag Follower is quite a bit different from the Steyr item. That part will definitely require modding or replacing.

    Ouch...I know dang well mag followers are as unobtainable as the mags themselves. That kills that idea. :(

    Not necessarily: Because something like a mag follower is much easier to produce with a 3D printer than a metal magazine case ...

    Unfortunately I do not have a 3D printer. :-(
    But luckily I have 5 17rd magazines for my L9-A1 ;-)

    The original Smith and Wesson M&p.
    NOT the 2.0

    I can confirm that IWI Masada magazines will fit and work perfectly, just 2 things need to be done, first you have to notch out the area so the steyr mag catch will work, and second, you have to install a Steyr mag follower, in order to have the slide stay open after last round.

    Thanks a lot! Now you just need to know where to get the Steyr magazine follower alone.

    Get some super glue or epoxy. Build up the follower where it push up the slide stop. Don’t bother to ask Steyr for Follower.

    I modified S&W SD/SDVE mags to fit my M9. You need to cut a notch for the mag release. Then the window you cut needs to flared out just a little bit. Followers are the same locks open on last round. These are 16 rd mags.
