    M3 magazine drawing

    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone have a good dimensional drawing of a M3 (45 cal) magazine?

    I have tried searching the web ... found drawings for every gun I could think of, even the complete MAC-10 and grease guns but not for just the magazine.

    Thanks ....

    Not aware of any drawings.
    These were stamped out on presses and dies so you'd be looking for the die dimensions instead of magazine dimensions.

    No drawings ???

    I would be happy with die drawings ... but there must be drawings of the finished mag.

    If there isn't, I can't believe no one has even reverse engineered one yet.

    My guess is there was just soooooo many mags around cheap it was not worth it to do so ... at least till now.

    Still looking if anyone can help.

    Thanks!

    Still not worth it. Never seen a technical drawing for any kind of magazine ever, now that you mention it.

    Best bet would be to buy a few and reverse them.
    They are only 30 to 60 bux each depending on what gg mag and where you buy

    Just like to play ....

    I don't do things because it is cheaper ... it usually isn't ... just because I like to.

    I am a retired machinist with a complete shop (well actually I out grew the last shop ... in the middle of building a new larger one).

    I might have to reverse engineer one myself but that is not a good way to do things .. you don't know if the original was at min or max tolerances. I actually went through all my mags last night ... boxes of every type except an M3 .... must have sold them all when I sold my M-10.

    I was just hoping someone had a good / correct drawing.

    There must be one out there somewhere.

    Thanks
