    yeah, I'm looking to sell them between 20-25 bucks depending on the complexity of the design.

    dunno what the price of reg 22 mags are, but I wouldn't buy 9mm or .45 ones, if there going to be the same size at 5.56 mag's you'd be losing capacity, and $5 sten mags > $25 mags

    not size as in length but size as in they fill the whole magwell. Instead of having a skinny looking mag it would be a sten length mag but it looks like a reg ar mag.

    This is what they did for the bdm mags. looks like a pmag but its a bdm mag. Mine will be metal and look lie a straight ar mag but have the internals to hold .22

    you do, dude took a bdm mag and a pmag body and chopped it, it only holds 23 rnds. Its half assed to me and not worth the money unless you have the parts laying around.

    costs 40 bucks to make. 25 for the bdm and 15 for the pmag, and then you gotta take a saw and chop both.

    did a little more research and the length will be about the same, maybe an inch longer for a 30rnd 9mm. Sten is almost single stack where if it was the width of an ar mag it would be double stack.

    I dont know if people would really use them in any other caliber than 22lr. One of the reasons people like 9mm or .45 AR's is so that they can just pick it up and go, and storing smaller sten/uzi/greasegun mags is a whole lot easier to do in a mag pouch than a full sized mag. If people are used to having a mag block in their rifle and using their current mags, I doubt they'd drop the cash on a mag where they have to break down the rifle so they can modify their rifle back to an original configuration so they can use the full sized mags. It would be way too much hassle, and it wouldnt be practical.

    unless the block is pinned. Plus some of the blocks are like 200 bucks for the slip in ones and then the uzi mags. With that you could get 8 or so mags. I planned on selling them for 20-25 and doing a buy 5 get one free kinda thing.

    I already have a whole bunch sold if I make them to people on arfcom.

    Also think about the leo aspect. They would have to carry around uzi or sten mags for their carbine service rifles when they can carry reg size mags.

    Also I want people to be able to use reg tactical floorplates. I was thinking of a way to use reg mag springs but it won't work with the design I have, plus this will have the bolt hold open features as well that alot of the current mags and mag blocks don't have.

    I was going to start with the oly 9mm and 22 mag designs first.

    The point is to really save money. 1 lower and multiple uppers. No need for different mag blocks and having to have multiple lowers. if some are pinned or special made lowers that have the magwell blocked off like the ar45 lowers or carbon 15 9mm lowers.
