Two questions if I may as an internet search hasn't thrown anything up:
1) Before I set about it does anyone have any top tips on how to strip this magazine? It looks like the only way is just to lever the plastic base away - just though I would ask before I start bending plastic!
2) I have aquired a 5 shot mag but in .243/.308 and it appears to have a blind at the back to make it suitable for these shorter catridge lengths. If stripped can this be removed and then the plate from my .270 mag inserted to give me a 5 shot .270 magazine? The actual mag is obviously the same size so it would be useful to adapt.
Thanks in advance.
