Rem 700 Police Detachbale magazine

I have recently purchased a new Remington 700P, I would like to get the detachable magazine, and I've seen a few different options. I looked at badger ordanance, but that seems a little pricey. What other models are out there that you recommend?

Badger Ordnance, Surgeon, and AI are all about the same price, right around $300ish for the mag and bottom metal, and they have to be inletted. The Remington 700 DM takes less to install, but is only a 4-round magazine. Kwik Klip is easy to install, but the magazines are kinda flimsy. If price is the main consideration, you might want to get a hands-on feel for them.

What caliber do you have? Many of the 700Ps come with a DM. I have a 338 LM with a DM by Badger that I like. I have recently installed the factory remington DM for .308 and I like it for it's ease of loading. I didn't care so much for the M5 in .308. the magazine seemed loose and the heavy spring in the 10 rd magazine made it hard to load.

I have on order the M4 DM setup and I can tell you how I like it in a couple of days.

Of course what stock you are using, how it is inletted and how much modification you are willing to do to it are important considerations.

Update: Got the M4 magazine system and installed it. Dropped into my B&C stock with no mods. Much prefer over M5. Magazine fits nicely into Bottom Metal and is easier/smoother to load. Fed 5 rounds w/o firing twice and it worked flawlessly. The release is the same place it is on the stock remington BDL so I like that. Haven't fired it yet but right now I'd say it is my favorite.

I would stick with an Accuracy International compatible magazine type. CDI makes a nice set at a reasonable price for $209, go HERE for info. Magazines are extra.
