    Default forming box magazine help

    I have a HK MP5 in 40 cal.

    I have ONE magazine with the prospect of no more anytime soon.

    (Just before the craze I bought 3 locally for $240 but the seller backed out 2 weeks later and showed his true colors, they brought him over $800 may he f 'ing choke on it)

    Like alot of you I have bent ak receivers from raw steel.

    Has anyone bent a box magazine? I have little doubt that I can form a few mags but instead of reinventing the wheel i would like any advice that is out there.

    If you are not familiar these are a straight box with Thompson like feed lips

    if you can get 9mm mags 40 cals will work just few less rounds, bill holmes had video on bending mags
    but not I have never bent a mag but rolled many ak receivers from flat sheet
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    Awesome link!!

    There are a couple that may work.

    Also found 4130 round tube that I might be able to machine a mandrel to force into a rectangle.
