Could someone please explain to me how to shorten the clip on the Marlin .17. Do you have to shorten the spring also? Thanks in advance.

Go to the Marlin thread and look for a thread called Marlin 17VS. It was on the second page when I posted this reply. It will fully explain how to shorten your magazines.
thanks for the help

I think you did a great job explaining it. Thanks for the help.
I didn't write the procedure, but just told you where to find the information. Anyway your welcome.
All you mod. folks, please send me the cutoffs, plase! You want a lowcapacity mag, i want to shoot like the Henry (rimfire, so it's ok to mention!) Load on monday and shoot 'til sunday. A 30+ mag would be cool. Just kiddin'.

Really i don't want a highcapacity mag. It would be much to expencive to shoot. At $2.5 a magfull, i'm glad for the time spent reloading. At 30 rnds it'll be @ $11 a time. :D :D :D
