I have heard:
- Sig 556 (30rd) - does this work without modification and how many rounds does it hold?
- 30rd GI mag - run a 1/2" ball endmill down the follower? Is the green follower the best and do you need to moify the feed lips or spring?
- What about the Bushmaster followers that they sell, can you just put one of those in a 20rd or 30rd GI mag?

Kind of a semi-circle drop in the top of the front edge. Quick Dremel job does it. There's a thread around here with pictures. Also, you have to place the mag, lips down on a flat firm surface and press down on it evenly to squeeze the lips a little closer together. It sounds iffy, but it's really not.

BTW, I have a few extra pairs of new Sig mags I picked up from the stores around here for those who don't have reasonable access to retail places...$38.00 incl. mailing box. (We've got four Academys around Oklahoma City now, and they've been stocking Sigs). Anyone interested, PM me.
