    Convert 10 round factory magazines to full capacity (45 ACP 14, or 9mm 18) ??

    I'm falling in love with the Para 14.45 and 18.9 LDA pistols - a couple of the guns I've purchased have come with what looks like a Para factory 10 round restricted magazine - here in Texas where we don't need the restricted magazines, I'm wondering if there are any parts I can get to convert the 10 rounders to full capacity magazines?

    Would it be legal for me to sell the 10 rounders to someone in California?

    THANKS!

    If your magazines are Para factory ten-rounders, they can't be converted. The standard capacity Para mags have a full-length steel magazine body. The restricted capacity versions have a steel mag body that's long enough to hold ten rounds, and then a polymer extension that makes up the length for a P12, P13, or P14.

    They're fun guns, aren't they? Don't tell anyone, people who haven't fired them just dismiss them as ugly. More fun for us...

    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    My old boss carried a P14 back in the 90s. It was a fine pistol. I will never forget the man or the weapon.
    I got to shoot a Tac Ops yesterday. Excellent pistol!
