It appears that the new Wincherster Model 70 comes with an internal magazine box plus floor plate.

It there a way to remove the floor plate and make a detachable magazine for this rifle?

I have not seen the new Model 70. If it is the same as the pre-64 Model 70 then it should not be very difficult.

Has anyone looked into this conversion?

Thanks for the tip.

I called CDI (the manufacture) and there is some metal and stock work that needs to be done to install the bottom metal. Furthermore, if you want more room to seat out your .308 family of cartridges in Accuracy International magazines (that work with the bottom metal) you have to remove the internal (tack welded reinforcement strip) from the magazine. This will allow a cartridge OAL of 2.950."

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
