Bolt Action with 10+Round Detachable Mag

A buddy of mine asked me at poker last night if anyone makes a a bolt action in .223 or smaller center fire caliber (no rim fire) that will take 10+ rounds and has detachable mags? I could not think of any - now it is bugging me ... Anybody know of one?

Thanks

The only ones that come to mind are Savage and Accuracy International, but I don't think they're 10+ rounds

However Badger Ordnance does make a replacement trigger guard assembly with a 10 round detachable mag

Ruger 77/22. Very nice rifles, and great shooters. I own several of them, and I wouldn't trade them for anything.

As Scorch said, the Ruger M77/22 Hornet fits the bill. However, they are 7 round magazines. (I have heard there are 10+ round magazines available, but I have never seen an ad or the magazines themselves.)

There is also the option of going to detachable mags with a Remington 700.

Thanks... I googled around and could not find any aftermarket hi cap mags for it.

The ruger 77 is a great gun - I have it in .17HMR and just forget it came in 22Hornet.

I also Spoke to badger they only have kits for .243 and up for the Rem 700s

Steyr made a .223 bolt gun that you could have with either a 5 or 10 round detachable mag. I know you REALLY need those high caps in a bolt gun. For the Zombies I mean.

There are plenty of aftermarket parts to turn a bolt gun into a 10+ round magazine fed repeater. Robar used to have a package which included gunsmithing that turned a Remington 700 short action into a platform that would accept M14 mags.

HS Precision used to make M700 bottom metal that could handle full capacity mags. Their own rifles may have had full cap mags too.

Sharp Shooter Supply makes full cap extensions for factory Savage mags.

The Tubb 2K looks like it could take as large of mags as you want.

There is no reason the GG&G bottom metal won't handle large mags.

Talked to my buddy a few minutes ago - he says thanks to all - he has two savages now and the sharp shooter supply solution is perfect.

He said he would name the first zombie after you guys.

Savage recently announced a new LE rifle with detachable 10-rd magazine. Here's a link for more info:

http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...-model-10-bas/

Don't know yet if it will be available in some form for civilians.

Not exactly in the caliber you mention, but these conversions were brought to my attention today.



They offer a conversion kit for people or gunsmiths to do the mods themselves, or they will do it for you.

It takes single stack AK mags, either 5 or 10 shot, for the 7.62x39mm.

Beside the zombie killer aspect, the ten round mag makes a great palm rest for shooting off hand.

Ok, its in .308 but takes M14 magazines. For the big zombies. Also for were-wolfes and were-elephants.
20 rounds magazines are great to use as alternative bipod, just rest the magazine at a backpack or a sandbag.

Thats an enfield No4 modern replika, it has several modifications which makes it not a true enfield, its just a modern rifle using the enfield system assembling an No4 enfield rifle.

here is a list of what was changed compared to the original No4 enfield: http://www.storm.ca/~aiarms/M10-intro.shtm

It also has a 60 degree bolt-open (instead of 90) which makes it even faster to cycle.

You would think that it would be easy enough for a major company to make a .308 or .223 that takes M-14 mags/AR-15 mags.

OK, this might be close, doesn't that pump action .223 that Remington made or makes, take AR mags? (long pause) Yea I just checked it out, 7615 tactical rifle. Pump action .223 with a 10 round mag from the factory, but it looks AR and I think it can take regular AR mags, can't it? Sort of an 870 rifle concept in appearance.

Actually, I was thinking about it.

Semi-autos are what sells in America. People can get them, so that's what they buy. Why bother with all that working of the bolt and whatnot?

American bolt-action users are for the most part hunters, with a few competitve shooters in the mix.

Hunters wouldn't understand the need for 10 shots of anything nor would they appreciate the extra weight, and competitors wouldn't see the need for more than 5.

That leaves high capacity manual repeaters solely the province of the milsurp market and a small cottage industry of custom gunsmiths.
