For those of you that have been hanging out here you've been waiting as long as I have for an alternative mag set up for the TCM. We are going to make another follower change to the 138 mag set ups and see if that helps, but again, that limits you to the short sub 40gr bullets as its easy to get past the 1.38" Tokarev length, even if it is only a .01" longer, it wont fit.... We might look at lengthening the mags out to 1.49 or so or 1.50 if the new follower works better.
In the mean time...…
We took a stock TCM mag and made one of the old Uzi / GG mag spacers. And don't ya know, it almost worked. The mag is way too vertical which puts the round at a very steep approach angle, but when we found the sweet spot it fed great. So now we'll adjust the filler and work out a mag catch and we should have a simple TCM mag adapter for std AR rifle lowers. We'll see how much time we can spend on this one..
Had half a day at the shop and modified the TCM AR adapter. I think the concept is sound as it fed some rounds out of a stock mag in a std AR lower. This needs more work to get it plug n play as they say, and right now it takes a chuck of billet to make it happen.
