GSG 522 10 to 22 Magazine Conversion
Considering all the GSG 5 magazines are almost impossible to buy right now because everyone is out of stock you can still find a few 10 round magazines on ebay. But who wants a 10rnd magazine unless you’re one of those poor saps that live in those states that limit the magazine capacity…sorry if that’s you ;(
Anyway, there is a way to relitiviely easily convert a lame 10 round magazine into a fun 22 round magazine!
The 10 rnd mags are the same as the 22 rnd mags on the outside, it’s just the internal parts that are different. And, it looks like the spring is the same in both.
Here is what one person said in response to the video below.
I pried off the panels on 1 mag and located the 2 rivets that held the plates on. Was not easy using a screw driver. Once I knew the locations of the 2 rivets, I used a drill bit that was as wide as the rivets and eye balled the 2 rivets. Drilled them out and pulled them out. I did 3 mags in les than 2 minutes.
