    Yes that reinforcement weld exactly what I was thinking of doing. That's interesting on the MAC-11 mags. My buddy's MK-760 has the same prob.

    These mags are very versatile! They are 7.5mm mags, and therefore take the longer rounds. Not sure if they'll take .30-06 but I doubt it; I just haven't checked. So any round that's .308 sized or larger could work in them. I wouldn't go shorter than .308 since the followers would tip.

    looks like you got room for longer bullets. I doubt the 140 GR stuff will fit but a little heaver bullet looks doable. even if you had to seat them deep you likely would be ok. that round has more case capicity than the 260 REM so you should have case capacity to spare especialy in the lighter pressure loads. those 100GR'ers should to really move velocity wise. and that bullet certainly will work on deer.

    Im researching bullets now for my 260 barrels for hunting and there is a pretty good selection.

    Congrads on getting it to cycle and fire. what was your port size just for the record?

    The gas port is just over 1/8". Honestly I forget exactly which bit it was but I wanted to follow the .308 build info.

    On my kids switch barrel deal I think Im going to go with a big hole and then just use a adjustable L1A1 block so I can get it to run light plinker loads on several of the barrels. accuracy will not be the top concern on his build for know just getting him shooting at 100 yards with a soft recoil as possable. I can do small port to fit hot loads for accuray later.

    1/8" or .125 seems a little big but if the pressures are not real high then its sound right. Im guessing from the hole size your running under 50,000 PSI loads??

    it seems that from .080 on up works for 53,000PSI and the hole gets bigger to around,
    .135 for plinker loads. I have some subsonic 180 GR loads that will almost cycle with a factory port.

    According to Hodgdon he'll be running between 37,000-46,000 CUP depending on his powder selection. He loads his lighter as he has a few Swedish mausers as well so I won't be surprised if his loads don't exceed 40,000 CUP. I finally convinced him to keep his primo mauser as it is simply too nice to let go.

    Oh and I was wrong on the test loads - the Remingtons are 140 gr not 130 Those are all around 40-46,000 CUP on Hodgdon's site and didn't have much recoil at all. I assume the longer barrel and heavy build helps that.

    That adjustable gas block I built from a Yugo gas block is SWEET! 90 degree gas port and I've tested with a paper clip to ensure we can still clean it if carb cleaner doesn't cut the grime.

    ETA here's a close-up of the gas port - 5 settings for 0-4 with stamps at 0-2-4. That's a piece of a skilsaw blade that I cut out with a dremel cut-off disk and punched the divot to match the holes. Clicks in place very nice Those blades are HARD metal and I had to use my carbide dremel cutter to cut the hole for the screw. I'm going to add a little thumb knob on the other side because it is difficult to switch around with soft point bullet tips

    I like the block and how you set it up. its pretty clean looking as well. I have been hoarding tome L1A1 blocks from back when they were like $10 for the entire set up I think I 10 so that will allow me to do quite a few calibure and they take the bigger barrel OD. but I got to admitt the youg looks a lor cleaner. How did you rework the internals or did you??

    The "internals" of the gas block? No, the way the Yugo gas block works is they have a cross-pin with a hole drilled perpendicular to the pin, parallel to the barrel. The grenade launching sight is connected to the pin and washers hold it in place. Open the grenade launching sight 90 degrees and presto the gas system is cut off and you can fire the rifle grenades.

    I simply used that 90 degrees to space out 3 more stops in between

    Kind of what I thought.

    I have a few of GB,s to play with. at one time tapco had Like 1200 of them in stock for like $2 each I contemplated buying them all but some one beat me to it they sold out in about a week after the L1A1 Gb thread was posted here years ago.

    I'll put up some pics soon. I welded a ring onto the other side so you could take a bullet tip, screwdriver, whatever you have and twist the adjustment without having to grab it with your fingers. When I was out testing it the other day it was so freaking cold that I simply could not move the dial. This ring should help out

    I put a bunch of pics up on my main build page showing off all the differnet bits. At this point all I need to do is install the bolt hold open, scope rail, modify the rest of the mags and test fire them to verify operation.

    Yes I know she's missing the handguards - took her back apart to clean.
