I'd love to see a photo of your "dime stack", the weld, if you have one?

I could not get a photo of it with my phone.. If I can find the piece I'll try to get a shot with an actual camera that can zoom in.. It looked good through the microscope on the machine.

Something I did get a photo of.. First stamping of a Savage 23A magazine.. Lots of guess work on the starting sheet metal sizes so some stuff is a little wonky and will need to be dialed in on the next few samples.. We are probably going to make a 7 round first and a five round later.. The one shown appears to hold 6 but we don't have our follower done yet.



We can put all the witness holes in the sides, for the prototype it just wastes time since only two holes are used for setting the part in the tooling.

I would be in the market for some affordable Anschutz .22 LR and .22 WMR magazines.

Some time ago, someone (might have been Triple K) made a limited run of 8 rd .22 WMR magazines for Anschutz rifles. I would love to have a few of those style mags.

FYI, I’ve found that Savage 5 rd .22 LR magazines will work fine in my Anschutz rifles with minimal fitting. The 10 rd .22 LR magazines are a different story.

Best photo I could get.. Looks more even in person, camera would not catch the light right. The part was hand held with each weld activated with a foot pedal while looking at the part through a microscope that basically has a 1/4" field of view.




I've been having a lot of fun with the machine, you can do all sorts of strange welding with it. Not super fast, but an interesting tool to have.

I could probably weld broken parts including springs back together.. I would be open to a few attempts on small parts if that is something people need, I would try a few for free to see what it would cost.. Could be an option for repairs on rare stuff that has no replacement parts.

Having welded for much of my 60 years (oxy/act, stick, MIG, & TIG) I know what you did on such a small scale is truly amazing. Thank you so much for sharing sir.

csspecs sir, A note to let you know the Walther/Colt 10 & 12 round magazines (Walther #517604 & #517602) I requested a while back for the Colt/Walther Gold Cup Trophy pistol (in 22LR) have finally become available. I just placed my order for the 5ea 12-rounders I badly desired. Cost was near $25 each plus shipping. Not cheap, also not far from other magazines I've bought this year. Regardless, I'm thrilled to be able to get them. I only hope the inventory was correct where I ordered them (they claimed to have 7 in stock)!

Edit/Update: Holy Crappie! I ordered those 5 magazines above in the early morning hours only to get a call about 30 minutes ago (roughly 10:45 AM in NV) telling me they were already gone (sold). Feeling time was highly critical on finding more, right away I jumped onto the PC and searched again. A Gun.Deals result came up showing a number of online retailers who supposedly had them available. This time I chose the cheapest, top of the list result/supplier (Locked & Loaded) & called their 800 number, then placed my order after being told they were in fact, in stock. I got cut off mid-call (Freaking me out), but the young lady called me back and completed the order, thank goodness! The cost w/o shipping was $22.03 each. Not bad considering I (supposedly) paid $25 each earlier. The shipping was even cheaper at about $15 verses the roughly $25 this morning. Whew! Now I guess I should hope they don't get lost or damaged on the way here? I sure hate it when things that should be easy, such as even finding these available, turn into complicated PITA issues...

Now, if I could only find several more (3 each, 7-round) magazines for my long ago purchased Astra Constable II .380, that aren't selling for $45 or more!

Hello Sir,
That is some very nice welding. Do you have any videos online of your magazine production?
NS 522 magazines would be nice. Several hundred of these .22rf bolt action Rifles were imported by Kengs in the early 1990s.

Like showing them being made? I have a few older videos of centerfire stuff.. Nothing very current. Most of the machines have guarding now, so to make this video we had to remove all the guarding and run the machines in setup mode to get the shots. Most of my new machines have more "worker proof" safeties so taking a video is pretty difficult of late.. I'll try to catch the Savage 23a magazines during setup, maybe I can figure out a way to use the flex camera to record videos.

Nice video. I think there is a demand for Russian TOZ 17 mags.

Colt Ace mags

I vote for Colt Ace magazines. A good magazine that would work in Colt 1911-22 conversion units and Ace pistols. There are a lot of these conversion kits out there but greedy old buzzards have hoarded the spare magazines and are trying to get 150$ or more on Ebay and Gunbroker. Triple-K replicas are readily available for $50, but who wants a garbage clip for $50? Metalform used to make them for $40 but they quit. Nobody is going to pay $150 for a magazine when you can still snag complete conversion kits for twice that. People WOULD pay 50 for a replica clip that had good steel in the feed-lips and worked. I know I would. I have heard people call the Colt conversion kits rare but they are certainly not. I see then frequently at gun shows and there are usually 10 or more on Gunbroker at any given time.

Ace Ejector

Another thought in regards to the Colt 22 1911. If you did happen to start making magazines, you could also offer the ejector alongside.Why? On the later models the ejector was stamped steel and falls out easily when removing the slide. It's very easy to loose and nearly impossible to buy anymore. Asking prices for this little piece of sheet metal can be well over $100. Numrich used to sell a reproduction for 30 something but even that is no longer available.

Since you are in the business of fine sheet metal forming, it would probably be no sweat to make a run of these and sell them to vendors like Numrich or just list them for sale along side your magazines.

Instead of springs you should try firing pins, repair or manufacturing. Used Anschütz 54 rimfire firing pins of the 1400 series sell for over $150. 1600 series fp go for more.

Not cheap to make I bet but there are gun owners that dont have even one mag. They would pay quite a bit for one.
