Make a hole in the side of the magazine, I use a dremel

Start cutting the hole with an exactor knife to 90%, (caution) as you start getting it close to done check it frequently in your lower, the top of the hole is the most important, if you go to high it will not hold the bolt open on the last round

Use a needle file for finishing

Very cool... now all the standard FAL mags are going to be backordered 2 years also!

That's great! I just picked up some .308 Pmags intending to modify them, but now I have another alternative! Thank you!!!
