Pacific Tool Howa DBM for AICS mags.

The CDI DBM requires machining the lower feed ramp. PTG moved the magazine aft requiring the internal box mag stop(tab) to be removed and likely the bolt stop shortened.

Required a little fitting likely due to me bedding the factory bottom metal. Needs rebedding for a sleeker fit.

I marked the tab on the back of the magwell silver. This can possibly be machined as a mag stop to prevent the magazine from being pushed into the bolt whilst resting the mag on your palm/rest. Hopefully prevents dragging the bolt with those beautisimis Kampfeld spiral flutes grinding the case on deck or feed lips. I'll happily back away from the die grinder for this job. Fortunately I have access to numerous machinists to finish it. If this works out I'd call it a rarely positive unintended consequence. Also since the box mag is double stack/feed Ima see if it will feed an AW mag. Only problem is my beloved melonite will be broken. Can't double melonite steel, so I'm told.
