I found out that magazines for the compact model is hard to find, i gonna buy a couple of full size magazine and fire up my Dremel tool, has anybody done it and can show me the result of the job ? it cant be that hard, i`m pretty good with tools but i lack a huge amount of patience ;) that is the only problem i can see

Are you suggesting that you will cut down the magazine to make it fit flush? What would be the purpose of doing that? I am assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that the gun is not going to be carried concealed in Norway - am I wrong?

This is just for cosmetic reasons, i like when the magazine is flush with the frame, this is not a carry gun, only for competition...carrying for protection is illegal in Norway

Have you disassembled a magazine and looked at how the bottom plate attaches? I'm thinking it might take a little more than just some Dremel use to shorten the magazine and be able to put it back together and useable again. I don't know of anyone having done it before.

If the long ones fit and work I'd try to find a sleeve to fit them.

You have a Dremel, you could even make a sleeve.

All the Best,

I have not tried it but I too have been told the Beretta 92C mag will fit. The hole for the mag lock on the side needs to be enlarged. Or there is this. Though I am unsure how international would work.

That's a pretty good price, too, 20 bucks. Log in to Gunbroker, I'm sure they will advise you. Heck, I might buy a few at that price. I picked up a very nice 92c last year, swapped it for a .40 PPS. Only one magazine, though.

When I got my PT92C it only came with one 15 round mag. Was able to locate 2 brand new Original Taurus 12 round still in the packaging but I paid much more than $20.00 for them.
