Yes, safe for another year. Next year someone will resurrect something like the bill that was put to rest... maybe just nibble at magazine restrictions or evil features. But next year being an election year for the House I suspect many dems will be wary of provoking another uprising.

Had the ban passed I would have purchsed a 10 round carbine mag to see how it was blocked and then modified a few garden variety USGI mags to accept 12 rounds.

Also, I had out a few old Glock 13 round .45 mags I was ready to pull apart and block as well. Glad I waited. That would have been an easy mod as it was so hard to get the 13th round in anyway a small piece of wood or glob of epoxy would have likely done the job.

There is still some nastiness going on this week regarding gun free zones etc so I am watching the Senate and House ready to email or call the appropriate politician.

I still may get a couple of smaller mags, makes it easier to shoot off a rest. Yea, them devils could still call a special session on the ban, hopefully not. Us folks that actually know what the Constitution means do not need to let up at all. This Levene guy is such a fanatic, I really think he needs to see a shrink.

Three cheers for the Senators from Virginia. I wish the ones in New York had that kind of back bone. Let freedom ring. Eddie

I think something learned is that, not only counties & cities in a state, need to unite, like we did in Virginia, but cities, & counties in every state need to unite, & coordinate their efforts, & I think we saw this happen in Virginia also.We all love our M1 Carbines, & Garands, along with our modern firearms, but even our vintage firearms, such as our Carbines, were being attacked.

Default 10 round magazine updates

With the recent election outcome Virginia may decide to try to ban standard magazines again. With that in mind I decided to see what good options are available to keep my carbines running.

Reading over this thread from last February I saw good input on Keep Shooting as well as Promag 10 round mags and purchased three of each.

The Keep Shooting look better than the Promags. Also, the follower in the KS was much smoother than the PM. However, both brands fed well and locked in snugly. So snugly a really hard palm slap was required to seat them. All three of both brands functioned perfectly in three different carbines. Even though the PMs follower felt rougher when loading, they were actually easier to load with no hang-ups as I pushed the cartridges in.

So, both are ok.

As a third option I considered making my own 10 rounder out of a USGI 15. I searched the web and there is a company called Magblock that makes drop in blocks. Putting one in a USGI U mag resulted in a really nice 10 round mag. Easy to load as it is a USGI and it stops accepting rounds at 10. Ran fine. Looks correct. At about $6 per block the best bet. Not permanent but you might need to put a drop of epoxy to attach the block to the spring to make it so.

Also purchased a few other MBs to try in USGI AR15 mags, M14 mags and Glock mags but have not tried them yet and do not plan to unless necessary come next year.

$6 a "block"?
Make your own blocks! JMHO.
