Convert a 17 Round Glock Mag to a 10 Round?

    I recently moved from NY, where after I retired, I had to sell my duty mags to other officers because I was no longer able to legally keep them.

    I spent a fortune buying 6 pre-ban mags which were legal, but under the new law would not be. I'm now in CT which I'm sure is on the verge of adapting a 10 round limit.

    So, the question is, is there a way of permanently converting 17 round Glock mags to 10 rounds? I'm not talking about a filler under the spring, but a way to perhaps indent the metal insides to prevent the insertion of more than 10 rounds in a neat manner that will permit proper function.

    Anybody know of any person or business that offers this service?

    I have bought a couple of 10 round mags, but they've become ridiculously expensive, and tough to find. Rather use what I have.

    Might want to wait and see what gets passed. This isn't over yet. That being said, your best bet is to try to swap them with someone that used to live in a 10 round zone. CA comes to mind. Here in MA we can't buy new Glocks so even with our ridiculous limit we are no help.

    Good luck in your quest...

    I have a few 10 round Glock 17 mags I'd trade Glock 17 round mags if that's an option for you.

    Thanks for the responses, I guess at this point I'll wait and see if the ax falls.

    I can't think of a permanent way to convert them. Maybe someone will start making extra long followers or floorplates that limit the round count. You could then get rid of your standard followers/floorplates and be in compliance--depending on how the law ends up being written.
