Oh man, as a lover of odd guns (and accidental expert on Star pistols) I have encountered a lot of mag modifications. Metal double column pistol mags in 9 or 40 are pretty much all the same size, and present the round at the same angle, so it's pretty easy to cut a new notch to get it to lock right. Careful measuring and slow cutting is the name of the game. 

Slide lock can be easy or hard. Usually, it's just a matter of figuring out what the actuator is, and blocking it up to interact properly. Thin plastic sheet as a top to avoid wear, and epoxy or model putty to build up and secure it. 

S&W 59xx mags are a good host, fit into a lot of other guns, and are pretty cheap as they were a very common gun. Biggest dimensional change most of these have is not overall size, but radius; the front can be less and more square. This can bind up the magwell or other stuff like the drawbar so is worth looking at as well. 

Carefully measure twice, cut once. 

I was also thinking the old Smith mags, and the 469/6904 12 rounders, as well.
