I need a mag and have had no luck finding one :censored2 ..

lets face it a gun is no fun without a mag and I do not think I am going to ever find what I need to buy it. .... So I come to, make it myself. I have it all planed out and now it needs to be welded.

I have to ask dose anyone know if their is any law preventing me from fabrocating my own mag?? I allready assume it will have to be under 20 rounds, but I realy am not certain about this point. Anyone who can tell me if their is any restrictions about building my own mag PLEASE HELP .
thanks the hotbarrel

It would have to be 10 rounds or under.. No new high caps...Yet???

What is it for, maybee some folks here could help find one???
Thanks mike, for some reason I was thinking 20 rounds...
this is a 12 ga shotgun. what I have is two CETME mags. I removed the reinforcement around the top. Cut the narrow front edge all the way down the middle. flatened out the edges, giveing me a u shape. then refold the front back along the first rib all the way down. tomorow I will weld it back togeather. I will have to weld on a small lock block in the rear, alter the feed lips some and grind out a large notch in the front for the shell to follow through. well I think ten rounds is plenty anyway
I have heard their are drums out their but that sounds a bit heavy.
NO !

The AWB uses 5+ rds as a qualifer to make a semi - auto an AW.

Other than that, no new shotgun magazines can be made that hold more than 10rds .............UNTIL SEPTEMBER.

So yes making a new 10 shot shotgun magazine is legal.
