Default Frankensteins anyone?

So I just got this lovely piece of machinery and I was wondering if anyone else has something like this or if everyone on here.... looks down on this sort of behavior...? And yes that is a high capacity mag for 20 rounds, fixed not quick release and yes it is functioning.

20 rounds for a bolt action? I don't get it. Not bashing. Just don't get it. How hard is it to lean on something to shoot long distances. I have a Mosin and a Mauser that I shoot for distance. I can't imagine trying to rest on a bag or something with that big mag on it.

Nice looking rifle. Beats the sh!t out of reloading every 5 rounds or so.

As far as my potential plans are concerned I wont really be resting my gun on any bags, MAYBE a wall or something for the end of the rifle, but for the most part I am trying to be as proficient as possible kneeling/standing. And doctheroc said, I would much rather reload once every 24 or 25 rounds then every 4 or 5. Oh and it will be a lot easier to not forget where my high cap mag will be since its attached to my rifle

Looks like an old trench rifle setup from the days of WWI to WWII. Longer magazines were thought up to decrease time spent reloading, and more time shooting.

Be sure to look up the value of that thing. Could be worth something (unless it was obvious that maybe someone put that mag on later).

Default Trench gun mag out the SGN

that looks like one them trench gun mags advertised in the Shot Gun News, they replace the floorplate with one these new made replicas, in this case its fitted to a beat mauser.
I think you can get them through NUMRICH
Magazine, 20 Round, Detachable - New Manufactured Replacement. German Marked.
