Pump mag questions

Hey guys.

Getting a nice all black Minimag on Tuesday, and thinking of making it a pump.

Just curious as to what I need and what I have to do to make it a pump!
Other than the obvious pump handle/post.

Thanks!

Here's a pic for reference.

The kits from Rainnman229 (MCB) or from jay8541 (AO) are about 200 for body milling, rail milling, and the pump kit. I would keep the Minimag the way it is and just buy a pumpmag. There have been several here and AO for 200-250 for a complete marker...

Well, I'm getting a classic bodied mag soon anyways, so I'm not worried about it.

I want a pump, and I figured this one would be awesome to turn into one.

Having owned a pump mag, and many other mags, I've never quite understood the desire for a pump mag. Mags just aren't meant to be pumped....

That said, to make a pump mag, you need the basic pump kit: Handle, mount, etc... As well as you have to modify your rail for a pump rod and modify your body for the pump rod as well.

Then you need to cut down a bumper and get a wave spring. Possibly cut down your main spring a bit.

So essentially to turn an automag into a pump mag, all you need is a wave spring (to prevent the bolt from going all the way back and latching on the sear?), and a way to cock the bolt (the pump kit, or something else)?
Am I understanding this correctly?

Yes, generally milling is involved in the "how do I pump it" set
