I’ve tried two mag boxes in my McMillan stock and both boxes won’t allow the action to fit. The action sit on top of the mag box in the rear. Both magazines are sitting flush on the bottom of the mag well. When I sit the action into the stock without the mag box installed, it fits perfectly. I’ve attached a photo of the action sitting in the stock without the mag box installed, then two photos of the action sitting on the mag box. I could use some help figuring this out. Thank you!

I’ve got a new mag box and an older mag box. I’ll take some photos a little later.

the older blind mag box needs to be mounted to the action and stay with it. the newer centerfeed box uses a clip that is inletted between the action and stock. your pictures the best I can tell look like the older box that your trying to mount like the newer box.
