I have some extended mags and some not. The former are no problem but standard mags are not so easy to insert when you're in a hurry.
My question is how much can I Dremmel off the 'nannystate' contraption around the magwell and still be legal?
I've searched ootoob and can't find any reference to such modification, this lack may be significant but I don't know.
Just wondering if anyone else has done this. I realise that the length of the LBP may not be compromised and this is not my intention, just the bulk around the magwell to make insertion/extraction easier.

I'd say as much as you want as long as you don't affect the structural integrity of the the rod and hence it's OAL.

As much as you like so long as it doesn't snap off

I cut everything forward of the mounting bolts off.
Loads easier to get mags in and out now.

I've shaved mine away so the original bumpers i put on the mag bases protrude passed it. Now i have +3 bases on 5 of my mags they're well beyond it.

I did the same to mine. Not quite as aggressive as Blackstuff but sufficient to make sure standard mags securely locked into position. But with extended mags it works a dream, and lets face it, who wants 10 rounds when you can have more!
