Look into savages.
Not a drop out box mag but they do make blind box mags w drop out floor plates. Ya a mini would work....if he doesn't mind brass hittin him in the faceMy first thought was Savage as well, but I don't think they make a mag fed bolt gun.
Although it's semi-auto, a 580 series Mini 14 could fit the bill. Not as accurate as the CZ, but an excellent all around rifle.
Very very true. I got a wild hair up my butt one day and start jackin w a mini just to see EXACTLY how far I get on to launch brass. In the end I was gettin it to fling the 3rd one out of a 3 shot rapid fire burst to go bout 15 yards. I gave up bout then. It proved my theory-you can turn the brass from one into a good weapon in itselfOr landing in the next county.
Minute of baseball at 100 is about the best iv ever seen......semi factory wo AlOT of smithingI'm sorry Locutus,but a Ruger Mini 14 isn't anywhere near as accurate as ANY bolt action rifle.
And yes,I have owned a Mini 14 for many years.They are very fun guns to shoot,but accuracy isn't one of their strong points.
