This thread illustrates 2 topics.

1.British S6 Respirator bag holding 8 KA shortened midcaps via divider

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. KA Midcap modification + Noble midcap mag bottoms

Currently these mags hold 93 rounds, going to try to shorten the spring to hold 95.


Step 1: Remove Spring Retention Pin
Image

Step 2:Remove Spring Retention Block
Image
Step 3:Remove Spring from Mag
Step 4: Miter cut mag to shorten (2 cuts)
Image
I set up zero clearance insert on my miter saw. Cuts the mags square and very clean.
Bottom mag portion is 72mm long
Top mag portion is 100.5mm long

Step 5: Insert Mag stiffener (use 5min epoxy)
This securely holds the cut-down mag together.
Make sure there are no burred edges inside the bb channels.

Step 6: Shorten Spring

Step 7: Re-install spring, spring retainer block, and spring retainer pin

Step 8: Slide into Midcap mag base.
Image
Step 9: Glue on Mag tabs.

Roll out:

Most excellent. I'm looking forward to seeing if you can squeeze an extra 1 or 2 rounds out of it.

Are the KA midcaps fully compatible with the SnowWolf Pulse rifle?

I bought six of them and....impossible to set in :shock:

Unfortunately its a plastic magazine that goes into a plastic feed ramp. There will be inconsistencies in the molding process but you can solve them with some sanding...or get lucky on "looser" feeding ramps in the Thompson lower receiver. But they are compatible. Mine are a tight fit in the Snow Wolf. I've also had two CYMAs, one was also a tight fit, the other wasn't.

I have a G+P Kit PR, so it works really good.


Good suggestion above, I would slightly bevel the edges on the mag to assist.


Will post a pict later to show the edges to adjust.

many thanks for all two!

I tried to check what parts are the problem but I did not find it (without opening the rifle case...).

The mag base you posted are very very accurate!.

I made them.

A little solidworks, 3d printer, steel pins, and paint.

It all started many years ago with the G+P kit.

Are this mag-butts compatible more or less with the Matrix/Snow Wolf PR and KA mags? :oops:

I have made various mag bottoms + insert kits over the years to fit marui/clone mags, matrix mags, and the newest KA midcap.

Hola. The hole on the back of the magazine (where the magazine release locks in) is a little too small on the KA mid-caps. I had to grind mine 'up' a little with a dremel to get them to lock in -

¡Yes!, that is. I 'dremelled' it and appears to fit better. Then, I sanded the hole it connects to hopup. I get a better fit with it.

¡Many thanks Prophet-KGB! :mrgreen:

If only the Marines in the movie had carried this much ammo!

Post subject: 

well standard load out of ammo for modern marines is 10x28rds ( I know most carry more ) so that's only 3 pulse mags maybe they just stick em in there pockets ? lol

Three mags would have been a leg up on the one they had in the gun... With seemingly nothing spare...

I had to do that with my KA mag as well, elongate the hole. Snapped in real easy after that.

British S6.

They are easy to come by.
