Done up by a local shop and I think it looks alot better then then Tromix ones
Dammit I hate California
Very nice. Is that an 8-round mag? I need to get me a few of those (until they make the 10s!).
I like the work Tromix does (I still need to send mine to him), but it's personal opinion. As long as we can put a pistol grip, a >5-round mag, and a folding stock, it's all good!
Yeah it's an 8rnd mag and the guys making the 10rnd mags need to hurry up.
Actually, where did you have this done? What was the turnaround time on it? Maybe I can take it locally instead of sending it to Tony.
It's not mine but it was done by Dereck@ www.azex.com

Woah. Way more expensive. He want's $399 + parts for the conversion + refinish. Tony charges $350 including parts for conversion + refinish.
Of course I'd have to wait a month if I send it to Tony...
AZEX is way expensive, call Jeff at TopGlock and he can make you one for a hell of a lot cheaper than that.
Jeff says he doesn't do anything right now because he's waiting on his licensing. He reccommended Derek too even though he's more expensive. Says his work is better than Tony's.
SO much more expensive though.
And holy crap I didn't know topglock was local. That'll be handy if I ever want to pick up a Glock.
I just saw the one he built for himself looked pretty good.
Yeah uhhh Dereck has a 4 month wait. He does good work, but that's too long for me.
God that 12 is sexy.
Gimik, have you thought about doing the conversoin yourself? are you handy? You can drop the money into a drill press and get the welding/blasting done at a shop.
I've never done anything remotely like this. I'd be scared to death to do it.
I'd love to try my own, but my wife would kill me if I fucked up.
About how difficult is the job?
Most of the info is in that post on arfcom. Some drilling of rivets and for a clean look, welding the holes closed, grinding them down and refinishing the reciever. You have to add a feed ramp and buy a new FCG and the PG/stock of course. Thats pretty generic, the details are in the post. But if you're good with your hands I think it would be a great DYI project.
Were is top glock located?

Ain't but one way to learn. I'm going to do mine myself, with Cobra's tutorial.
If I want something sexy and pointless, like the HK sights, then it'll go to Tony.
Experimenting with $400 of shotgun doesn't seem like such a great idea to me. We don't all have the disposable income you do...
So you'd rather pay the price of another shotgun to have it done? Its not that difficult. Only one way to learn too. I always try to do my own stuff. If I mess it up, just write it off and either start over or fix the mistake, or send it to someone to fix it. Ask questions. Plenty of people have done the conversion.
Saving money and learning > paying more and not learning
Much better answer than
