    Best way to spring feed a mag'?

    I have been wanting to buy an automag pistol and I will probably either buy the one currently up for sale or make one. It will be ran off of a 12 gram and I will want to get a 10 round spring feed on a standard automag body with the power feed rotated. I want to be able to easily mount the feed and pull it back to be reloaded with 10 round tubes with taking anything off of the gun. Sort of how Goatboy did it with his plastic automag not long ago. The thing is I will need to get the trracer rail and feed system. I can buy the system separately but I dont think I will be able to get the rail without buying the gun itself. I dont want to waste the money and I also dont want to waste a perfectly good gun . Any help and suggestions will be appreciated.

    I picked up both of my top rails from here:

    They were $4 each. I got them both today and they were new. Can't wait to start both my projects.

    alternatively you could cut down the feed and use an empire sniper spring feed.

    obviously you could get a tighter fit by cutting down the feedneck

    I would need it to be a sideways feed and I would need to be able to load quickly while having it in a tight and fixed position. I will probably just get the rail I will just have to find a very secure way to keep it secure on top of my mag as I dont like the idea of glueing it on there.

    no it will not be. It will be a standard automag power feed body for a self made pistol.
