Re: Question for Fiftydriver or the machinest
I have not yet used a Lawton M7000 short action yet but I have looked into fitting the long action with a Wyatts extended magazine box, the 3.820" model.
THe concern I had was that the Lawton has the side mounted bolt release instead of the underlever type that the Rem 700 uses. With the Rem 700 that bolt stop can me milled back so that you can really get alot of increase in bolt throw and can use even the really long 3.910" length mag boxes.
With the Lawton, you do not have that much meat in the bolt stop to allow it to be milled back to that extent but from my measurements, it looks like it should be able to handle the 3.820" length box easily, just not the really long one.
With that information, I would suspect that the short action should be able to be modified for the SA Wyatts but I would recommend you find out from the source first.
Again, I would say cautiously that it should work.
