Looking for a Rem 700 .308 detachable magazine kit for cheap
 
Hello,
I am hoping someone can reffer me to a place where I can buy a detachable magazine for my .308 rem 700 to make it more of a tacticle rifle and also make it look better too. I don't want to spend 300+ for what I want to do I am unemployed thanks to Obama. I was a very successful mortgage broker the last 13 yrs and now am looking for another job but its been tuff. I am blessed to have unemployment and able to keep busy looking for a job and stay busy with my favorite hobbie,long range shooting,sniping and reloading. Please if anyone can help please reply. I am new to this site and thought I would get good info and good conversation from regestering here.

Midway USA, Brownells and Nachez Shooter Supplies are 3 places I can think of off the top of my head.

And, welcome to the forum. If you have not done so, stop by the Introduction secton and tell us a bit about yourself.

Sorry about your job situation but what you are asking for is not an inexpensive proposition. If you are runing a BDL the most inexpensive setup is the factory bottom metal for the DM model but it requires a new stock. The rest of the aftermarkt ones not only require new bottom metal but mags are not cheap. For example Surgeon Rifles makes a great detachable mag setup but besides the $360 price tag the AI mags it uses are $75-95 a piece. Maybe you can find used bottom metal in Gunbroker.

thank you for the reply
 
I actually do not have a factory stock I have a Bell and Carlson stock on my rem 700 do you think that makes a difference when looking for a detachable magazine?

the cheapest one I can find is the H-S Precision here at midway usa but again it is still $278 bucks. H-S Precision Trigger Guard and Detachable Magazine Assembly Remington 700 w/Hinged Floorplate Long Action 300 Ultra Mag, 338 Lapua 3-Round Stainless Steel Black - MidwayUSA

If you are loww on bucks, google Kwik Klip.....

B&C makes great stocks. It's still set up for the standard BDL bottom metal so you need something that will be compatible with that. Some of the setups like Surgeon and I believe Badger need substantial fitting which adds to the cost unless you can do the work yourself which is not impossible but it's not easy either.

I have and have had both internal box mags and external mags. There are pros and cons to each. I hunt quite a bit, so I perfer the internal box mag. I can't tell you how many guys I know that have lost their mag in the field. One of my only external mag rifles now is a .308 BLR. I bought an extra mag for that day I loose mine. $54.00 plus $6.00 shipping. Expensive insurance. I would say spend the money on another part of that rifle. My Howa still is stock, but gets attention on the results at the range.
