View Full Version : 30 round mag question

December 30, 2008, 18:05
I understand that the l2a1 mag was a l4 bren mag but was it its own mag or was it a reworked version of the standard 303 bren mag. I guess what I'm asking is how hard would it be to rework the $12 303 bren mag I got thinking it was a 308 bren mag. Has anyone done it or should I just through it in a drawer and forget about it. Thanks

L2 magazines ARE NOT the same as L4 (7.62) BREN magazines (but they do interchange) and the later are NOT a modification of .303 BREN magazines. Can't make a .303 BREN magazine run in a 7.62 FAL.

On the topic of modifying bren mags, has anyone made one fit a PSL, sure, it'd be a bit of work, but the .303 is close enough to the 54r for it to feed, and with the lack of high capacity mags you could probably sell a whole bunch...

Or would that cause a bunch of legal troubles, because there previously weren't any mags over 10 rounds? [Sort of the same thing as the new AK pistols getting chinese ammo imports stopped]
