Default Recommendations for mag capacity limiting modifications?

Are there any California legal kits for DIY modification of large capacity magazines?

We're oving back to Cali after 8 years in PA, so I'm getting all my ducks in a row before we cross the state line.

Gunsmiths in my area are swamped with orders from New Jersey. And the mods arent cheap either.

LCMs are for Beretta 92s and CZ 75BD PCR.


Thanks for any help!

Might even be cheaper to just purchase 10 round magazines.

During SSE a LGS was sending mags out to be blocked for $15 IIRC. The block was a piece of 1/4" dowel cut with a pair of dikes that was ziptied to the the mag spring and the base pad was riveted.

Definitely an option.

This is part of what I'm trying to figure out. I have about 15 mags that need to be modified.

The mags that need modificaton are for
CZ75 BD pcr 9mm
CZ 82 in 9mmMak
Beretta 92s. 9mm

The Beretta Mags were the cheapest to acquire-- plentiful at every gun show in my area for about 10-15.

But the cz mags all go for $35-50 depending on manufacturer

The rivet just goes through the hole in the base plate?

I like these Mec-Gar 10 rd mags better than the CZ 10 rounders. And much cheaper.

Edit: Sorry, these are full size.

Right, it has to be drilled out to get the Mag apart.

Maybe a Delrin rod, cut the length long enough to block the right amount of rds, and epoxied to thebottom of the follower of each mag. Total cost to do all your mags would prolly be around 10 bucks. This is kind of how I blocked cz 82 mags. I didnít use a delrin rod because the follower was plastic which I drilled and screwed /epoxied a #10 bolt that extended the right amount to block 1.5 rds.

Delrin (acetal) doesn't like to be "glued"

Here's an option for pre-converted mags but they're pricey, your best option might be to convert them yourself. Wooden/plastic/polymer/steel rod cut to the right length, then epoxied/glued/welded/drilled/riveted to the baseplate. Or just buy one, see how they did it, and modify as appropriate.
