SWD M-11 Project
I wanted to turn the M-11 into a useful SMG instead of a simple bullet hose. By applying the proper amount of cash and my minimal mechanical skills to the problem, this is the result.

Step 1: The package from Lage
The stock, plastic safety sucked
Drive out the roll pin with a small hammer and punch. Reverse the operation with the new safety and roll pin.
The new Safety is actually usable while operating the SMG Its solid steel or aluminum.
Step 2: CAR Stock
Its too high to use the iron sights comfortably.
Step 3- Tactical Innovations Paddle Mag Release
The old mag latch- you can see the plastic original safety in the middle bottom of the photo
The only problem is that this Tactical-Innovations paddle Mag latch doesn't work with the back grip that Lage Produces.
Step 4- Lage Grip
I didn't get any photos of this part of the installation.
Step 5- Lage Slowfire Upper
Fit and finish were perfect as I would expect from this piece of art.
Step 6- The finished product
The finished product.
1. I had to move the ARMS Mount forward so I wouldn't bust my knuckles on the ARMS mount when I actuated the cocking handle.
2. The CAR stock is too high to use the iron sights. Not a problem for me as I use the AIMPOINT.
MAGAZINES- Argentinean Magazines from CDNN
Step 7- The Range Trip- Impact Zone 2-12-2006
LOADING THE SINGLE STACK MAGAZINES!
These mags are impossible to load without a loader.
The one from Cobray fits and works like a charm.
MAKING THE CDNN METAL MAGAZINES FIT IN THE M-11 & LAGE UPPER!
CDNN South African/Argentinean Magazines: I can't figure out if these are the vaunted South African mags or Argentinean mags. they do not fit my Lage Upper without a little, minor modification.
One theory is the simply grind a little off the top of the feed lips. See the pictures included above.
The better theory- Use a mill machine to mill out the magazine catch slot and enlarge it from .21 to .24.
15 Mags, NIW fro CDNN Here is a mag in the mill
Here are 6 modified mags. Unmodified top and modified bottom
