Live steel M4 mag conversion?

Recommended Posts



I've seen elsewhere (mainly Red Alliance) that players/reenactors would mod live steel AK mags to fit them with airsoft mid cap internals. My question is has anyone done this with live steel M4 mags and if so can anyone point me in the right direction?


Being in the military, I'd love to have that feel and distinct clanging noises of the live steel mags.


Thank you!

People mod PMAGs to hold GBBR internals quite frequently.


The top of the mags would have to be cut down, getting rid of the "lips" on the top, and just for the fact that RS magazines are longer than airsoft ones, since they extend farther into the upper receiver.


Obviously the feeder and spring would need to be removed, and a hole drilled or tapped into the bottom plate.


The magazine release catch might need to be modified, depending how well they would end up sitting. Also dependent on the amount you cut from the top.
