    Default .450 Bushmaster magazines

    It appears that these are AR-15 magazines with a new follower. Can anyone confirm that? Or do I need a special magazine?
    If it's literally just a different follower I have some 10 rounders I can convert over. http://www.chambertactical.com/

    Thanks,
    Brett

    That is correct

    20=9
    30=13

    Yep. And a guy makes a pop in follower that works great. You just "roll" it in from the top. I bought a few of these when I first got my 450. Its funny, the factory built .450 mags have a dimple or crimp to keep you from pulling the follower and dropping in a .556. These are the ones I bought, I think. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Magazine-Fo...-/152137172696

    Almost forgot. I had to cut a crescent relief in the front of the mag, similar to factory ones.

    Thanks for the replies, it helped immensely.

    That single-shot follower ben linked is similar to what I was looking at, but that guy has marketed his to the .450, so we know it works, and he's a few dollars cheaper on shipping than what I was looking at. That seems like the way to do it. Jut order 3 or 4 and forget about factory magazines until I stumble across a deal at a gunshow.

    Cutting a crescent relief in the front of the magazine, is that necessary for feeding, or more for ease of unloading? I ask because my 7.62x39 magazines are a hassle to unload, but still feed correctly.

    Thanks

    I have both the single shot followers (I paid like $5 a piece) and 10 of the actual DPMS black followers I got from Tim LeGendre directly. Also a PVC pipe section follower I made for a PMag and one for a Lancer Mag. A section of pipe, sandpaper, a few screws and epoxy and you can make your own for less than a dollar. Other than follower, nothing else needed for mags.
    Good Shooting, MarkCO
