Will a Colt 1911 22LR mag work as a S&W M&P 22LR mag?
Since S&W magazines are hard to find in general for now, I noticed something while at my local gun shop. The Colt 1911 22LR pistol mags seem to be made by the same manufacturing company in Germany as the S&W M&P 22LR mags are. The only differences I saw is that the S&W mag has flanges on both sides where the mag locks in into the mag release button, the Colt mag only has 1 flange and a different mag plate of course. My question is, could these be used, if I modified the base plate, and added something to make the other flange that is needed?
My gun shop has loads of these Colt mags, but no one is buying, I thought I could convert them to better use. Any info would be appreciated.

The reason the M&P mags have two flanges is that the release button is reversible for left handed people. As for fit, try it, but you should make sure it loads properly, maybe with snap caps.
