I'm doing a .222 build on a short action Interarms Mauser 98 action. Yes, I know, it CAN'T be done..
Of course it can...
In any case, it's an exciting project. I'm shortening the action and re-welding it together, then shortening the bolt to make a true Mauser 98 micro action, not the typical CZ stuff
However, of course the feed rails are too far apart in the mag weld, so I am looking to build an integral single stack or double stack single feed magazine that will lock into the floor plate, the excess areas around the top of the mag in the original mag weld will be filled with a top welded cover.
Therefore in order to try and find a good mag solution, I'm looking for any .222 or .223 magazines that you can spare, no matter how old or dinky they are, even if they are just in component parts or springs and followers.
Being a big experiment, I'm looking for parts that you can spare as not beeing needed (ie. I'm not looking to 'buy')
and yes, the bolt face will need to be welded to a much smaller diameter too, and yes, I know about the heat treatment issue in the locking lugs
let me know if you can help.
thanks in advance, whether it be for something or nothing
