H-S Precision makes a replacement triggerguard/floorplate assembly for Model 700’s that accepts detachable magazines. They used to offer 10 round magazines, but I don’t see them anymore on their website.

Anyway, check the following link, near the bottom of the page www.hsprecision.com/Pages/accessories1.html. Brownells sells this.

I remember reading about a company who did conversions which allowed you to use M-14 mags but I'll be damned if I can remember who it was.

Robar - psywar provided the link above. IIFC, the conversion costs something like $600!!!

If you want something foreign: Sako, SIG, & AI are all good.

I am currently working on such a conversion. After much research, I'm going with the HS precision system. They do still make 10 rnd mags. They are at least 100$ each though new. Kind of expensive, but if it's what you want, and you don't want to pay out the cash for a Robar or HS rifle, then go for it.

Mine is going into a rem700 LTR in .308. Remingtons stock system was not holding up in all environment and they discontinued it. It also had a bad habit of getting bound up if not inserted straight. HS solved this problem by putting the mag latch on the short end of the mag, instead of on both sides.

Sako - TRG-21 or TRG-41 - get the muzzle brake. (And a spare mag.)

Guys, don't forget about the Steyr Scout. It has 5 and 10 shot mags.

If you have excessive amounts of cash, Accuracy International's AWP has a removable mag.

Savage makes detachable mag models, not sure what capacity.

To help choose a rifle, what's the purpose behind wanting / needing a box magazine?

These come with a 3 round mag but you can also get 5 round mags.

If you want the low end, what about Ishapore 2A's or their Gibbs counterparts, the ersatz Jungle Carbines (Gibbs No. 7, I think)? Ishy rifles should be available from Navy Arms, in either regular or "tanker" length.

I'm asking this for a (money lacking) friend who wants to put together a low budget "SHTF" rifle. He wants a bolt gun in .308 with 10 round mags.

He's been reading this www.survival-mindset.com/reviews_c3.htm and has this mad max fantasy of himself trudging around the great plains shooting deer after total societal collapse.

Anyway, the key here is accurate enough to hit men and deer at <=500 yds (with practice) and quick reloading.

Something with stripper clips sounds like a good idea. I'd imagine a scope (if wanted) would have to be placed far forward though.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

Agreed, my Dad just bought the nickeled Gibbs rifle. Looks like a fun shooter.

Best he's gonna do is a Steyr SBS lightweight tactical (as mentioned here by Repete). Can be gotten for $699.

That sounds pretty sweet. Got that pic?

It also sounds way too expensive.

Hey RAF, what kind of work is involved in building a decent stripper clip fed gun like you described above? Would this involve buying an old C&R gun, and putting a new barrel/stock on it?
