    There are a couple of threads way back about lengthening the 223 mag. Sorry, I don't know the title for a search.

    The 75gr eldm just fit in my factory mag. It's a 1:8 Superlight if that makes any difference.

    I'd made a thread on this topic and sold you a few bits and pieces to lengthen yours 3-4 years ago.
    How did it turn out?

    Is that the magazine that came with your rifle from new?

    I brought the rifle from @MSL so I'm not 100% sure but I believe it was factory.
