Does anyone make a bolt-action .223 rifle that accepts an AR-15 detachable magazine? Or does anyone make a Rem-700 modification to accept AR mags?

Why?

Why not? You would think it a popular thing in AWB states.

Rumor has it that Australian International Arms will be/is offering a .223 version of their Lee-Enfield clone. The 7.62x39 version uses AK mags, so maybe the 5.56 version will use AR mags?

I've handled (not shot) a M10-A2, and was *very* impressed. It almost followed me home...

GG&G has a stock....SPEAR or something like that. A Rem 700 drops into it but I think it's expensive (and ugly) as hell.
Link Posted: 3/24/2005 1:36:12 PM EST
Yes, the Milcam and Polcam rifles. 30 degree bolt turn, AR mags bayo lug. made in UK.

Works well for Canada too. A guy has a bolt action AR15 (unknown manufacture) with a 100rd beta drum that's been modified in a way so that it'll only work in his AR15, that makes it a magazine designed for a bolt action rifle, and not limited to the gay ass 5rounds up here. It'd been checked out by the cops, they cleared it, it's legal. He says he arm sure gets tired by the time the mag is empty.

That was my first thought too. I think it takes a mag similar to the AR-10. I've talked to a few Highpower shooters who have tried them and they say they are freakin' awesome. Of course, they better be for a base price of $3,500.

The official Tubb 2000 page is down, but Creedmoore has a pic.

I know you said bolt action, but there is this...Remington 7615
Link Posted: 3/24/2005 7:37:37 PM EST
I bet with a 30 round mag and a bit of practice you could but down quite a volume of fire with such such a thing.

Now they should make a version of the 7600 that takes FAL mags. I like the LE version of the 7600 with the ghost ring a lot.

Plugging the gas tube on an AR ==> Instant straight-pull bolt action. That's what I do with my 300 whisper AR when I want it to be really quiet.

This would make an even better straight-pull:

Yep, that's what I'm in the progress of doing to it.
