    Howa Mini 6.5 Grendel Magazine

    Just wondered if anyone has a Howa Mini 6.5 Grendel / 7.62 x 39 magazine. I'm keen to try cutting one down but would rather try it on a spare.
    Cheers Pete

    I think the 223/6.5G/x39 mags are the same thing

    Is that right, would like to know for sure before I buy one, although why would Howa make different ones ?

    Yeah nah, just had a look and seems I misread something, the 223/204 and 6.5g/x39 are separate part numbers, although that's the 5 round mags

    Just came across where I read it

    https://gunworks.co.nz/shop/item/how...are-rifle-only

    "Note that the mag will hold 7.62x39, 6.5x39, 6.8SPC and probably 6.5 grendal as well. Can see this action being popular with builders of mid power hunting rounds, with a bit of bolt face work. "

    Thanks Tommy, I might give Gunworks a call, I would say maybe just the magazine follower needs a bit of modification. Cheers for remembering.

    Pretty sure they are the same. Got some from Brownells. Currently sitting in the Black Hole of the international mail centre.
