    I want to conver my 700 ADL to a BDL. Can I use the current mag box and spring and just purchase the BDL triggerguard? Or do I need to purchase the whole kit, spring follower and triggerguard?

    Thanks for the help.

    The ADL mag box is taller than the BDL box but every thing else will work like it is.

    You can trim about 3/32s off the bottom and it will work, or the best way is just buy the BDL
    mag box when you buy the bottom metal. (8 to 10 bucks).

    Thanks for the help.

    I have had some trouble trying to find the entire set up for under $130. I've seen pleanty of SA stuff but difficulty finding the LA set up.

    Midway has the bottom metal for $83.99 Product # 327914 and the mag box for under $40.00.
