    Howa mag box short action

    Factory Magbox of a howa 6.5 creedmoor (hinged floor plate model)

    Had an extended one fitted to my rifle so the factory one is surplus to requirements
    Photo up in the morning

    Not sure what itís worth
    Flick me an offer

    From memory the factory box I have for sale Excepts a coal of 2.850” (max)

    I had a howa long action mag box modified and fitted to my rifle so my rifle will take a coal of 2.930”

    Im selling the no longer needed factory box which is 2.850

    Why do you ask grasshopper

    Ahh sensei, I too have a howa short action with a magazine box that could do with lengthening haha. Was just curious really...but seeing as 2.930 could be very handy, what kind of work is needed to make room for the longer mag box?
