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?

I think if you call Cobb mfg they will make you one in bolt action. They already make a .50bmg like that.

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...

mag capacity is still limited

Remington is selling a pump action .223 rifle for pussy police departments that won't issue ARs, it takes AR mags.

I believe Robar can modify a Remington 700 in .223 to accept AR mags. I know for sure they can make the .308s use M14 mags also.

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.

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.
