    I just tried this with a Bulgarian waffle mag. Most I can stuff in there is seven. The guy in this vid must have longer mag bodies to start with, or my follower "legs" were longer to begin with. If the latter is the case on different mags, his 1" removal amount may need to be adjusted.

    For the gun cabinet: Sheet metal, sheet rock and then wood. You want heavy and fireproof. Once it’s in place, how often are you going to move it?

    Sheet metal would probably end up being lighter than the wood depending on the thickness. Also would protect the contents from humidity ect. If you plan on using a dehumidifier of any sort in there.

    Great video. For whom it concerns, the TAPCO 5 round mag follower has two finger-like projections on the bottom which can be clipped off, thereby converting it to a 10 round mag. Alternately, installing a regular (20 or 30 round TAPCO or other maker follower will also convert the 5 round TAPCO mag into a 10 round type.

    Thanks! I have one with the attached flip magazine, any idea if they can be converted from five to ten?
