    have you managed to find a spare? If it does not work out you might be stuck with a single shot.

    Those extended Mags are worth half the price of your gun. If you want a flush fit sell the whole rig and buy the 7mm08 advertised on here.

    My understanding is that is a pretty fair price depending on condition. Good ones can go for a lot more, if you can find one.

    @The bomb what’s the serial number on that? Just to get the year?
    Mine is 1234k73 so made in 73 to date yours it’s the last two digits after the letter
