Thanks for your magazine tutorial. It will help many, such as myself, more than one can imagine. My problem is that I have tried to insert a 1220 magazine into the magazine well of a 142 A and it will not work due to the ears on the cartridge adjustment. The only magazine that seems to fit & work properly is a R632. I do happen to have one of the R504 short adapters. Any suggestions on why the other ones that you can interchange will not do so for me?
