Quick qeustion!

I have a new stevens 200 .308 and was wondering how to tell if it is centerfed or staggerfed? The magazine stays inside the stock when I remove the action. Also if I purchased a new stock would I have to swap out this magazine piece from the old stock? Thanks

    I don't know much about the Stevens stocks or their availability so I can't be much help there.

    The center feed mags normally have a flat top bullet follower and the staggered feed has a high
    side and a low side on the follower.

    Also the center feed has the lips of the mag box turned in and slightly smaller than the round
    so it snaps in and holds the round.

    Screw spacing for Savage Actions. (stock, bottom of action, center to center)

    4.275" - Savage short action staggered feed
    4.4" - Savage short action center feed
    5.062" - Savage long action

    It being new, and the magazine box staying in the stock sounds like center feed to me. Check the screw spacing as well.

    The mag staying in the stock means it's centerfeed. If you plan to use it you'll need to swap the mag box into the new stock.
