Howdy, Jim...Yep, I'm on the RDX forum also. At least until the lease is up in August! Pretty sure I'll just buy the RDX at lease-end; but you never know what they might have to offer. I'm afraid our days of buying $40K+ vehicles with cash and trading every two years may have come to a halt. Gonna try to be a bit more frugal in the future.Hey coach are you on the RDX forum?
Where did you get the mods for the 15 round mag?
I read somewhere that the 22lr models had a "pin" that stopped the firing pin from hitting the chamber face. Any truth to that?
The mod I made on my original mag was sold by SIG Power a few years back. He went out of business. His kit included the shorter plug for greater capacity...15-16 rounds, but the same follower...no lock back.
One member here was nice enough to sell a couple of modded mags with the aluminum follower that DOES catch the slide on empty(not locked back officially). With some extra parts, I now have 4 mags that hold the greater capacity, three of those with aluminum followers, and two stock 10-round mags. I can 'waste' a bunch of ammo in a hurry!
Honestly don't know about a protection for the firing pin hitting the chamber face...I'm just pretty careful not to dry-fire by counting rounds. That snap-cap idea for the 'bottom/last' round is an interesting idea.
It's too bad SIG charges so much for these plastic mags...same with the 938-22. they cost double what you can find the 1911-22 metal mags for!
As I mentioned, mine is the P229...not sure how interchangeable the mag components are with the 226-22 set up.
