Converting to a Detachable Magazine

Currently, I am shooting a Mod 70 long action with the hinged floorplate. Can this be changed into a detachable magazine or at least a larger version on the internal mag? My most accurate loads will not fit in the mag.

Re: Converting to a Detachable Magazine

Most of the detachable mags out their won't have any bigger box that what the factory does so if your looking to be able to extend the length of your rounds you may be looig the wrong direction.

Wyatt's offers an extened mag box for the Win M-70 that says it extrends the mag size from 3.400" to 3.820" , thats almost a quarter inch added length. The Wyatt's boxes are a big upgrade when shooting VLD style bullets but they do require removing some metal for the reciever and that best done by sombody that can operate a mill deciently.

The Seekins detachable Box Magazine will allow a longer over all loaded length. Mine will allow an over all loaded length of 3.92"


I hardily recommend the Seekins DBM

That was my point , Last I had heard Glenn was not making them for the M-70. CDI makes some DBM for the Win M-70 but they use the Accuracy Internation mags
