Limiting Com-Bloc Mags For Hunting

One of the states we hunt allow 7.62×39 as a legal rifle caliber. Unfortunately they have a maximum capacity of 10 rounds. 

This mag stays restricted full time. Thus it gets a permeant X to denote as such.

Those that hunt with an SKS don’t have an issue and frankly, those that use an AK don’t either since 10 round mags are easily obtained. 

My goto gun happens to be a Czech VZ58. And let me tell you, 10 round magazines are very hard to come by. Have to be purchased out of the country. And can be a bit on the pricey side. 

User has to disassemble the mag to install block.

One option is to use a 30 rounder and load 10 rounds in it. But since I never want to be on the wrong side of the DNR, I found a cheap and simple solution. 

I picked up a 10 round mag block. It was, if my memory serves right, in the neighborhood of 10 bucks; and easy to install. 

The mag block is designed for the AK47; but since the VZ mag internally is the same; it worked like a charm. In a nutshell, problem solved and I won’t have any issues with the DNR if they ever checked me.
