Modifying Mag Catch Detail
Posted 11 March 2004 - 01:32 PM
It got deleted (DOH!) when someone (DOH!) was cleaning up his hard drive.
Now I have the mag catch and a handfull of mags and don't know what I need to cut off the catch to make it work properly on my Kahr Semi.
Thanks in advance...
P.S. I looked in the FAQ, but it's not there.....

|Coz, I have never had a semi but I would think that with a GI catch & GI mag it should work without any mod.|
Apparently you have to take about .100 of the piece that protrudes into the mag.
I think it's because the ones sold by numrich or whomever are M1A1 spares....but, I could be wrong.
I know I installed mine and tried the mag and it did not work....
PK or someone sent me the link or the document....so stupid.....I thought I printed it out....but it's gone..

I have a friend that loves to do metal work and has the right tools and stuff, and he wanted to do this for me.
The guy actually makes replacement screws for his Mausers.....
I think he could make some bucks making replacement screws for thompsons.....
I'm sure someone has purchase one with bungled up screws..

We took off .1 from the top of the mag catch with a dovetail cutter. We were able to keep the correct contour and the engagement groove this way. This can be done with some carefull filing. Just go slow and take a little at a time so as not to go to far. You are left with a little nub. Good modification for a semi. Hate to see good smg mags get ruined.
