I still don't understand how the magazine has anything to do with the accuracy of the gun. Once the cartridge is in the chamber, it has no contact with the magazine, nor does the magazine provide any structural support. Unless the magazine being mobile somehow affects the harmonics of the gun, it doesn't make sense that it could affect accuracy. I know people will swear it does, but my dad's Les Baer begs to differ every time it shoots a .25" group from its detachable magazine.
