    458 socom 10rd plug or limiting follower...

    It is my understanding that a standard USGI mag body holds 11 rounds of 458 scocom.

    I also have seen that some places offer USGI-ish looking mags that are allegedly 10 round 458 socom mags.

    If they are advertised as 10rd but really hold 11 this could be a serious problem for people behind enemy lines.

    Is there a magazine plug or a follower with extended legs to ensure that 458 socom when using a standard USGI body will truly be a 10rd mag and not an 11?

    Thanks.

    It's not very hard to trim a wooden kid's ruler to length and stick it up inside the mag spring. I round the edges so it doesn't catch on anything.

    I see one somewhere. Can't remember where.

    Did you try Tromix??

    If the intent is to meet a legal maximum capacity reqirement, it has to be permanent and irreversible.

    Temporary solutions are normally fine for hunting.

    "Permanent" is a legal construct that varies by statute. In some statutes, something is permanent if it requires disassembly to reverse. I.e. if you have to remove a floor plate, it is permanent. Ohio was a good example. But, you will have to check your local laws for the definition you must meet.

    Anybody with a backhoe understands that NOTHING is really permanent!
