The evil mag limiter, what are you using if you have to

Recommended Posts

So, for whatever reasons you can only have 10.  What are you using/works best.  Particularly interested in STI/SVI double stack 140's and 170's.  

I had forever been using Arredondo, but mostly through attrition, I need to replace.

One set of bases with a dowel in base.

Dawson cause it doesn't slide on/ off.

Another set of bases for out of state matches.

Just a word of caution - temporary mag limiters do not bring you into legal compliance in a variety of locations. I don't know the mag laws all over North America, but at the very least, in NJ, you are still in possession of a high cap mag and if found, will likely be arrested and prosecuted. Mags must be "permanently" blocked. Most interpret that to mean drilled and riveted, at the very least.

So true. From what I understand the Canadians have this down to a fine art. They cross the border every weekend to shoot.

I use the Canadian method,  a piece of aluminum flat stock riveted in the mag to stop the follower at 10-1/2 rounds.

Atlas Gunworks sells ready made “Canadian” inserts.

I can take some pics of my mags later today too.

There’s also the easy option of buying 10rd mags 

STI 10 round mags are only 126mm and the MBX 140mm 10 round mags are $130/ea. 
 

I’d rather spend $20-60 in parts vs $650 in mags. Additionally, the couple people I know locally that have the mbx’s are very disappointed in their performance.

How do you clean the insides between stages?

I just use a mag brush or a silicon rag. I'll try and take a picture when I get home.

I use a piece of flat stock 1/2 as wide as the atlas one. Can still pull the spring and follower out easily but still stops it when loaded to not accept more than 10.
