    Aftermarket Tikka M55 Box Magazines

    Cheaper by the dozen....Have been in pursuit of the above rocking horse shit mags for a while now.Even attempted a half arse go at building one myself. Followed up on a PM from @jakewire mentioning an aussie outfit doing all manner of CNC machined billet ally aftermarket mags. Home - watersrifleman.com
    Having developed the more common in demand mags, he's now getting onto the more obscure mags if demand warrants tooling up.
    And that brings me to the M55 (& others) order.Evidently enough aussie demand was established to kick it off.Tooling,prototype,& product teething issues sorted, he's now taking forward orders on the first production run of the M55 @ A$202.00 each plus shipping.I,ve ordered 2 myself and that has brought his price back to A$195.00. This fella is into wheels and deals & will cut us a deal on bulk purchase unit price and shipping costs.
    Take a look at his product list and see if theres one you might want.
    * Disclaimer- I cant speak personally of the quality of his products as I've never laid eyes on one,so no product endorsement from me.If anyone is familiar with his products chip in. And also plse no tire kickers, only genuine money where your mouth types need reply

    I lent Dave my rifle in .17 Rem to use in this project to get the magazine dimensions right. The feedback on his long t3 .223 mags is pretty good.

    Over 2yrs now, not a single fail to feed,
    Follow the simple build instructions and you'll be fine.

    I note they are testing a ten rounder for the Tikka 595. That would be brilliant.

    I have a 10 round .223 and a 6 round .308 magazine from Dave Waters.

    Both excellent.
