    Fixing SMG 68 Aluminum Magazine?

    I've been trying to figure out a solution to the stock aluminum magazine of the SMG 68 deforming after sustained use.
    Has anyone had success in addressing this problem? I've seen photos of people flipping the magazine around and remaking the holes on the unused end, but has anyone made a more permanent solution?

    I messed around with the idea of making some sort of an adapter of a stronger material. I don't have anywhere near the machining capabilities to do something like this myself though, and it looks like it would be pretty expensive if I wanted someone else to do it. The unique cross section of the magazine is throwing me for a loop. Every other aspect of the marker runs flawlessly, and it's an absolute thrill to use when the magazine opening is actually functioning.

    I had considered making something out of steel, like what you have there, but my motivation to do so was seriously lacking.

      I was gung-ho about it for the past couple days, but the hypothetical price tag hit me like a brick wall

      A solution to the self destructing magazine could allow these gems to see the field again. BretG found a way to breathe new life into the SMG60 and 68 Special with his valve mod. A new Mag or Mag Adaptor could make this gun the beast of the field again. I have 2 begging for help.

        Alright folks, I went ahead with the adapter idea. Gonna make the rest of the magazine out of some aluminum square tubing and drill the rest of the needed holes into the adapter. I've been simultaneously modifying the valve for HPA, and I'm getting close to what I need. I will report back with either incredible success or epic failure.

          Did you bite the financial bullet and have it machined from billet?

            William The Third recommended a website called Fictiv, which is what I ended up using. I removed a lot of the features I could do myself so the cost came down to about $120.
