Could you? Magazine for ABT
Posted 01 August 2009 - 04:52 AM
Is there a way where I could either buy a straight mag for it or mod a real magazine?
I have not seen one in real life, but have moded real mags for markers.
I believe the Alpha Black has a gap in either side of the mag well, and there are push tabs in the magazine to fit.
Take a real mag of the right or approximate size, test fit in the mag well and you may need to trim any real fittings or mouldings to match the mag well.
(e.g. cut off or file down)
Now you need to decide on how to fix the magazine. There is sometimes to option to wedge it in place, but it will ultimately get knocked out.
You may be able to glue in place, but remember to glue one side only so you can dismantle the marker, and don't do it too strongly or you will never get it off.
Preferably replicate the existing fitting system:
Test fit again an mark through the gaps onto the magazine.
Drill out to align the gaps in the body, then make fittings:
The easy but ugly way - Put a nut and bolt through the body and magazine.
The next way - make something you can slot in place pushed through the gaps to hold in place.
The harder way - as the original will be push tabs, then make push tabs.
Something like two tabs with a spring between them slotted into the magazine.
The harder way
