Short Action CIP Magazine

I recently purchased a TrackingPoint 6.5 Creedmoor rifle. It uses a 5 round Short Action CIP Magazine. And it appears that magazine is actually designed for a .308 or .338LM as a single stack, but has a ~.5" long insert in the very front to make up the space for the shorter 6.5Creedmoor cartridge.

I asked if there was a 10 round magazine available from them and they said no, but there may be some available online.

I've looked several places locally and online but don't see anything close.
I don't have a problem buying a 10 round CIP and making my own block on the front.

So if you have any suggestions, I'd really appreciate knowing where I can find a 10 round CIP magazine.

You really don't need the block in the mag. I use the unblocked AI mags in my custom 6.5 CM,it allows me to load out to the lands,and I haven't had any feeding problems at all with the rifle. My COAL is 2.988" long on my loads.

Answered your PM.

AI makes two types of magazines,one with a restrictor plate,and one without.

Their 6.5 rifle is based off the same (LA) as the .338 model?
Interesting, as the 6.5 Creed was designed for a SA in order to avoid the oal issues with heavy VLD's that can happen with the .260.

Feeds reliably?

Cool toy- how rugged is it? Capable of being dropped on a rock and keep on ticking?
