FX 12 shot Mag MOD to fit on VERMINATOR?

Postby FXHunter on Sat Sep 18, 2010 4:12 pm

hi guys

im toying with the idea of trying to MOD a 12 shot FX mag to fit the verminator and was wondering if anyone had already attempted it or if it was even possible???

I doubt it would work, the 12 shot mag is for .177, and if you drill out the holes to 5.5mm you'll have nothing holding it together.
I'm not sure, but the .177 action might index the mag differently (less rotation?).

hi buddy

i believe the 12 shot is 5.5cal and the 17 shot is the 4.5 cal mate , its just a case of getting the indexing to work as the breech allows the mag and the probe hole is exactly the same,

Should be doable, really. The barrel needs to be fitted just a tad deeper, that's about it. I never measured things, but the width and depth of the breech look pretty similar. Just Try[TM] :)
