Default Help with Numrick's 1903 -10 round mag?

Hi All,

Can't seem to find the correct search term to locate a answer to this question.
I'm sure it has been asked in the past!
Has anyone bought a Numrick 1903 10 round mag & does it work well enough not to crush it? I have seen them at the SHOT show & they seemed to be well made!

Thanks in advance for any help locating a thread on this product!

I use one, took a bit of internal polishing to make reliable, the cast follower is junk, used a stamped 03a3 follower that I had to shorten a bit. Works like a champ now.

Hi colemanw,

Which end did you have to adjust, chamber or bolt end?
Just one more item that I REALLY don't need, but want for some unknown reason !

Thanks for your quick reply,
broom

Trimmed the rear end off the follower. Little at a time until it didn't bunch when loading.

Hi WarBaby1942,

Thanks for sending the link!

I think you two fellows, have pushed me over the edge.
It will happen on Monday!

Enjoy every day,
broom

Thought I emailed back, had to file the tab here for the plate lock to slip into place

Hi colemanw,


It latched right in after a little file work to the hook on the 10 round mag.

If anyone reads this thread later on, PLEASE take a few pass's with a file & see how it fits. Colemanw's unit needed less filing then mine!

--Go SLOWLY -- if you don't have much metal working experience!
It's not rocket science- but "WE" can screw up!
I have ruined a part or two in the past, by not CHECKING often.

You might want to mark it with a red marker so you can see where the latch is catching. If you look at the system, you will see how it works & how deep the latch should fall. I did not alter any of the original parts to make this work correctly.
I hope your picture will help others with this 10 round mag.!

Thanks for your very helpful messages & pictures!

Well, I just bought one of these magazines from Numrich to use on my ugliest drill rifle. I also bought a cast steel reproduction trigger guard that they have on closeout. I’d rather modify a twenty dollar repro part than an original 1903 milled part. I also got a damaged scant stock since the Dupage drill was splintered beyond repair. I need to go back to work, having a day off is expensive!
