    Or maybe you guys have the answer.

    I know a 10rd mag exists for the M24a2. I want to know if this will fit any of the civilian model 700s with the detachable mag box feature. Or if the magazine is even available to the general public.

    Thanks.

    From what I read on a message board (don't remember which one... www.thehighroad.org would probably be able to help you out), it can be done but it requires a conversion kit of some kind to accept the magazines.

    You need a new floorplate, most of them convert the rifle to accept m-14 or FAL mags.

    The M24A2 uses the HS precision bottom metal the M40A3 uses the Badger Ordnance bottom metal. You can buy them, but most of the time they are sold out. Also they will fit any 700 action depending on whether if its a short or long action.

    Snipershide.

    Often they are part of the stock but there are a few kits that replace the floor plate. Most of the time you dont want to bother.

    Also the 700p is available with a detachable mag in some cases

    The bottom metal is not part of the stock. Why not change out the bottom metal? A lot of people do it and its pretty simple.

    the AICS is just about the only stock that incorporates the bottom metal, to say the bottom metal is often part of the stock is incorrect.

    if the 700P has bottom metal, then it should :dunno:

    I was always under the impression that
    ADL = cheapest model, no bottom metal
    BDL = ugly skipline stock, bottom metal
    CDL = classic stock, bottom metal

    the ADL isn't made anymore, the SPS seems to have replaced it.
