Did you make a lower that accepts glock mags?

Yes.  I posted most of the pics on the FB group.  Some of the pics are on an old instagram, thekettlebellgunsmith.  Sorry to say, it's a one-off project.  I do it for a hobby.  Only made one and not planning to sell it.  Reached out to Manticore arms to see if they wanted any of the measurements and don't believe they were interested at the time.

What did you do to the bolt to make it happy with single feed mags?

Wow, this seems like a much better project than a bullpup conversion, from a consumer interest standpoint... People would jump at the opportunity to buy a simple lower that allows for Glock mags.

Agreed.  We were talking probably a year ago about how much everyone would be interested in a different trigger pack so we would be one step closer to caliber conversions.

Not just magazine conversions, but there's plenty of room for 45acp, 10mm, etc.

Sure, there would need to be mods to the bolt face and extractor, and likely the ejector arm too, but I have no doubt that it could be done.
When people ignorant of guns make gun laws, you end up with ignorant gun laws.

But then the magazines they make would be obsolete.

Only if you bought the modified lower... The original Scorpions would still use the CZ mags.

Milled it with a 60° end mill.  Took off the minimum amount so that section of the bolt would fit in a stock Glock mag that's metal lined.  Magpul's have more clearance.
