    Just wanted to check if these work with BAT rptr actions? I believe they do but just want to double check. Thanks!

    Harry,

    Just took a quick glance and they were about $320 with trigger guard. They mentioned nothing about them being on clearance price. How cheap have you seen them for ?

    A couple of questions

    1. Do you know the OA length of the mag internally ?

    2. If I already have the wyatt centre feed ultra mag window installed, do you think there would be much gunsmithing to fit the Detach mag design with trigger guard?

    I wonder if the mag would hit the ground and mess with your prone postion much being that it hangs fairly low ? I think it may well if you are using a 6-9 inch Harris ? Anyone know ?

    DUH

    Midway had 7 on clearance for $156 or so when I posted this link, all gone now.

    The magazine hangs pretty low but I don't think you would have a problem prone unless you like to use a long bag like a Bud's. There may be a 5-round magazine available but I haven't seen it yet.

    There is a bit of inletting and fitting required, no idea if they will work with other than Remmy LA style actions.

    Glen Seekins makes a hell-for-stout detachable magazine and JW Precision is now selling the V-Bull mag system as well.

    I posted,but some how it's not hear.

    They lowered them to $136.35 so I bough 2 and I hope they are
    good.

    My post stated that they had 6 left after I orderded mine.

    I intend to shorten one to about 5 or 6 rounds (Just below the mag release)
    and leave the other alone.

    Thanks again for the notice

    Thanks for the reply! I was asking that question for a buddy of mine. I know that BAT's are compatible with remmy stuff so was wondering if the wyatts set up would work with a BAT rptr action?

    I'll try asking in the gunsmithing column.

    Thanks Again,

    Dave

    You might ask BAT directly, I'm sure they have a good idea. If it follows the Remington footprint I can't see why not.

    Got a reply from BAT so thought id post it here as well.......



    Dave



    It is compatible – however if it is one of their extended ones the action will need opened up where the box goes into the action.
