    There doesn't seem to be an AM floorplate/trigger guard out there to convert my .223 model 700 VSSF to a detachable mag. I am aware of the Kwik Clip but even though it is offered in Short Action, .223 is not listed, only 22-250 and up.

    HS Precision offers one, but it only fits thier stock. On the outside chance, is there another offering out there that I have overlooked?

    Thanks in advance

    Badger ord makes one. That is short long and long mag action.

    Click the link and scroll to the bottom.

    If it is a short action then it will fit the 223. It is just that the follower may be cut to fit 308 win sized shells (Diameter .473") that is the 22-250, and all the 308 cousins that were made off of it. You might just need to replace the follower with one made for a 223. You might be able to modify a stock Remington 223 follower to fit the mag.
