I tried to find info with the search on this as I am sure it has come up before. Can you use a GI mag catch on a semi and use GI mags or should you modify the catch or the magazine like Kahr? Maybe some one sells a modified mag catch.

It dosen't mater weather you use a GI or new mag catch both need to be modified to use unaltered GI mags. In the FAQ section there are instructions on how to do it or you can send one to PK or Damon. Damon offers modified catches for sale on his site.

My personal preference would be to use the unmodified mags with a GI mag catch. You have a better chance for a proper fit and less chance for a malfunction due to improper positioning.

If you wanted an original GI the sources are unlimited, Ebay, Sarco, IMA, E-Guns, just to name a few.

Thanks for the help. Modifiying the catch looks pretty simple. I have not looked at it real close is it easy to pull the catch off the frame?
