Looking for some help on temporarily converting a 10 round Saiga 7.62x39 magazine to a 5 round magazine. I had a person from the Nebraska game dept. tell me to pin it. What the heck does that involve? I was going to put a piece of wood of some type at the bottom of the mag to take up space. I would like to make it a temporary change so I can use it as a 10 round mag later. I know there is a 5 round mag but looking to save a little money and thought I could have the best of both worlds this way.
1. Does anyone know how much space I would need to take up for 5 cartridges? I know I could experiment but thought maybe someone has already done this.
2. Would pinning be better/ easier that a block of wood?
3. What does pinning involve.
Thanks in advance.
