Stirling Model 14p Magazine fit.

Hi all,
Just here to ask a question regarding my second hand rifle I purchased of a friend who has surrendered his firearms license (New Zealand) He used it to put down calfs back in his farming days.

Anyways, he has lost the magazine to the rifle (Model 14p Stainless) and I've managed to pickup a second hand magazine after trying some that had the right shape but was too "thick" and didnt fit at the local gun store. (They said the M20 and M14's are the same magazines)

So after taking time off work to try find some magazines & now have purchased one that still doesn't fit, I'm really wondering if they have changed their magazine design & reciever design recently?

So apart from purchasing a brand new magazine which runs about $100 for a 10 shot 22lr mag which still may run the risk of not fitting. I'm thinking of filing down the parts that are interfering with the magazine fit in the rifle?
Theory is if the majority of M14P magazines are of the older pattern I might as well adapt the rifle to use the more common magazines.
Has anyone heard or done this before?

Cheers

Colin

*UPDATE*

Went ahead and filed down the reciever then went and blued the magazine and reciever to touch up for a nice fit then cut new notch for the latch going of the blue.

All finished and quite happy with the mod. Now the rifle accepts all common magazines for the sitrling M20 & M14P
