    TRG42 Magazine

    Afternoon Team ,

    After a TRG42 Magazine to have a play with for a project of mine.

    Currently going the motions of rebarreling my .308 Sako M995 to 8x57.

    Yes I know it's silly and that's exactly why I'm doing it.

    I'm looking for something with a bit more capacity than the bog standard 5 Round .308 Mag it came with.

    As the M995 uses a TRG42 Action, I figure a TRG42 Magazine could be slightly modified to work

    Cheers team.

    The 42 is a long action, the 22 is a short action.

    The AICS mag thing definitely might be cheaper, I was hoping to do some garage wizardry on a TRG42 Mag , but the AICS seems a good Idea.

    I feel like this isn't the most sensible course of action.


    That being said , it's not the silliest.
