Some time ago the idea of taking a Remington 7400 in 30-06 and making an "assault weapon" out of it was tossed around. Take the basic rifle with synthetic stocks and put an 870 shotgun pistol grip stock on it and come up with 20 round mags. It seems to me that now is te time to start dealing with the magazine issue. So what do the Arfcom powers that be have to say. I don't think a BAR mag would work, so could making a mag from scratch be at all possible in a home workshop? What tools and methods would you recommend? The idea of having a self loading 30-06 with 20 rounds in the hopper just tickles me to no end! So what do you think, forget it or go for it?

Put the crackpipe down. Step away from the gun.

You could make some mags pretty easy with sheet metal and a welder. It would just take some practice. I have seen some of the USA brand mags for the mini and the AR, and I swear that some kid made them in his back yard.

The 7400 is picky on ammo, shortstrokes on very slow powders. It CAN give excellent accuracy if you find a good load for it. The mag issue is a real problem. There were some crappy 10 rnd plastic mags (Ramline), and even worse 10 rnd metal mags (dunno who made them). Just could not get any reliability with these mags. Gave up and traded it for a Mini-14, a much more reliable rifle.

Me thinks that ASI Accuracy System International does a rig of which you speak. I believe they have for a while. They may have mags in stock for sale after "Bloody Monday" as its refered to in the media. Id like one in 270 win.
