Thanks for the pics iceweazel. An interesting bit of Volquartsen history there.

The bolt and mainspring are about as I expected. The rod added in the front of the mag was expected too. But I have a other couple questions about the mags.

1) Is the little tab brazed onto the left feed lip there to hit the extracting shell and cause ejection to occur earlier than would happen with the stock ejector?

2) It appears the mag spring sits so it lifts the follower in the middle of the follower button track. Is this spring a smaller diameter so it can fit in the middle like that?

Maybe you could post a pic of the modified follower also? It's hard to tell how it was made/modified while inside the shell. Thanks!
