That thing looks uncomfortable to carry, awkward and pointless. They will probably sell like hotcakes.

Have patience. The mags are being worked on and will be ready for sale in the future and you can buy as many as your heart desires.

My apologies if I didn't respond to your email, but I've been getting about 10 per day from people and finally just gave up responding to them all.

Oh... no modifications needed?

There's actually a LOT of neat stuff! I like the keyboards!

Thanks, yeah I was going for a "bubba-free" sort of add-on device with this one. I do have some designs for a custom trigger guard that will let you accept larger mags, but that'll be an entirely separate product that would require a custom stock or a lot of modification to the original.

I actually posted a message on the mailing list a week or two back with a link to a range video of the mag in action.

I have seen many updates from the first "ugly" prototype the the nice looking one he has now. He has asked at another website I am a member of, about specs of many Mosin magazines, the guy is doing his homework! Be patient!

I know this is a pretty old thread, but bad news about the project.

Richard Nagy, aka Datamancer, died in a car crash last week.

He didn't just do cool things with guns, he made a lot of amazing custom stuff in the Steampunk style. Laptops, Keyboards and even jewelry.

http://makezine.com/2013/11/25/the-m...ts-datamancer/
http://www.sepiachord.com/index/data...ill-be-missed/

Do a Google image search for Datamancer, you will see a lot more. The guy was quite an artist.

RIP Datamancer.

No such thing!
Any of the Bubba mods negate the Curio and Relic (C&R) status of these fine old milsurp rifles.
Why in the first place would It be important to have a 10 round magazine. It's not some sort of rapid fire autoloader. Besides, It only takes a second or to to dump in a 5 round stripper clip if you're in that big of a hurry.

Dude. You are berating a dead guy. Look 2 posts above yours.

Datamancer's design was pretty clever, it did no permanent modifications to the rifle, and was easily reversible.

Not berating anyone dead or alive. Just the idea of bubba'ed up C&R milsurps.
It was my negligence to overlook that this was an update on the subject of an old thread passing.

Sorry to hear about Nagy's death. But if I wanted a large capacity magazine for a bolt action, I think I would start with a .308 Mauser and adapt it to FAL or M14 magazines. A better rifle, a lot less work, and available magazines.

If you want Hi cap bolt action, get the repro trench mag for the Mauser 98.

Like this, 20 rounds.

If you need high-capacity magazines, you need semi-auto feed, not a bolt action.

pretty sure that the millions of soldiers issued enfields would disagree with you wholeheartedly.

you know you could just do the archangel stock for 150$ and get a 10round detachable mag included, if you really want one

http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...s_id/711016440

i dont know the consensus is on these things, but a co-worker has one and it works well, the mag has a hangup every three or four loads, poss due to surplus, i really kinda want one, but i think mosins are so pretty in original furniture
