The replacement of your OEM magazine guts with the MagGuts system is simple and can be performed by anyone.
Be sure that you are using the correct instructions to convert your magazine. The original Ruger LCP and Kel-Tec P3AT conversions use a flat follower while the newer conversions use a split follower. The only difference in parts between the two assemblies is the follower, but the orientation of the springs and connecting cup is also different and critical for proper performance.
