    Also the mag is not the way for prone with side mount. The problem would be with corners.

    But why would you want a vertical magazine. A side mounted mag has a lot of things going for it. The Aussies mounted them almost on the top position on the Owens.
    I did it because I could and it looked like a rare last ditch German gun. (MP3008, basically a vertical mk2 with a loop stock) The fun for me at the time was building something that I could shoot. For a few years I was deep into gun builds.
