I have a question.

Has anyone removed this thick piece of metal in a AICS Mag and Tig Welded the seam and get it smoothed back out.

The reason for this is so i can get more room to seat a VLD out Further.

Another Idea would be to Remove the Plate, cut it into 1/3rds and weld a piece on each side leaving the center piece out.

Thoughts or Ideas on this?

Re: AICS Mag Modification

Lots have done it, don't need to put the other pieces back in, but find some way to fill the holes or bullet tips can hang up in there.

Try searching for +aics +drill

or

+aics +plate

Might give you some results.
