TPX Extended Mag Mod Instructions

The instructions in this guide will show you how to make a single extended TPX magazine that holds 10 balls from two stock 7 ball mags.



Materials:
- 2 7-ball TPX magazines
- Phillips head screwdriver
- hack saw or jig saw
- wire coat hanger or other source of 5/64" wire
- hot glue gun
- scotch tape
- drill and 5/64" bit
- utility knife

Step 1.

Disassemble both magazines and sort the components



Step 2.

Select one of the Right half clamshells to use as the right upper section
A. Cut the bottom lip off, keeping your saw as flush as possible
B. using a utility knife, cut off the follower locking spring post, you will also need to shave some of the back wall behind the post to allow the lock release arm to travel freely.



it should end up looking like this:


Step 3.

Choose a left side clamshell to become the left upper section. cut from the bottom of the fifth tab slot down and cut on the same angle as the bottom lip



it will end up looking like this:


Step 4.

Take the remaining right clamshell and cut from the bottom of the fifth tab from the bottom, again maintaining the angle of the bottom lip. discard the upper portion.




Step 5.

Cut the remain left clamshell from the bottom of the first tab slot down.




* you will likely need to shave or file the cut edges to make them fit together

Step 6.

Take one follower release arm and cut off the lower flap.



Take the other arm and cut through the middle of the 6th gap from the bottom flap. Discard the upper half.

Using your 5/64" drill bit, drill a hole through 4 of the walls separating each gap in both arm halves.

Step 7.

Cut a straight 3" piece of coat hanger wire and run it through the holes you just drilled in the follower release arm halves. line up the halves then fill each gap containing wire with hot glue.

allow the glue to dry and then cut away the excess glue



Step 7.

Take one of the follower springs, hold each end firmly and stretch slowly until it measures roughly 9" without tension.
You should know be ready to assemble your extended mag.


Step 8.

Take your upper and lower right shells and line them up. Place the Follower lock, follower lock spring, finished follower release arm, follower release arm spring, and ball latch in their normal spots.



carefully place the upper and lower left shells and replace all screws. Feed the
follower spring in, slot the follower into place, and secure the top latch.



carefully line up the loose sections of the front of the magazine and secure them with a strip of scotch tape, then cut out a hole for the magazine release catch.



alternatively you could super glue the section together, but I prefer the tape so i can still take it apart to clean and re stretch the spring if necessary.


Your Extended TPX magazine is now ready to rock. Besides the practical advantage of more rounds per mag, the extended magazine just makes your TPX look that much more awesome.

Re: TPX Extended Mag Mod Instructions

Nice job!
How does it work though? The 7 round mags were a bit hard on the paint. I'm wondering if the spring has enough tension to get all the balls into the chamber as well.

Re: TPX Extended Mag Mod Instructions

I haven't had a chance to test fire it yet but i have tested its feed strength. With the spring stretched properly it maintains sufficient tension all the way to the top.
I'm probably going out this Thursday so I'll report on the performance then.

Re: TPX Extended Mag Mod Instructions

@ Logan04
Yes they are the straight 7-ball mags, though an extended 8-ball mag shouldn't be too much more difficult using a similar process. I might try it in a while when i have some spare cash to blow on mags I might ruin.

Pretty cool! It almost reminds me of a TMP.

Re: TPX Extended Mag Mod Instructions

So i test fired the extended mag this Thursday. The spring tension does seem to be a bit of an issue.
I need to find a source of longer springs, i'll probably try borrowing my friends first strike spring.
I'll update once I've got a solution.

Great job! ! !
Good luck with finding a spring... I need one for my Tpx as well. I have been working on a FS conversion for the TPX and got stuck on the spring as well. I need a little more tension on a regular 7 round to push the FS rounds into place too. Let me know if you find it.
