    They are not.

    The M558/M590/M595 (medium action) and M658/M690/M695 (long action) use the same action & magazine.

    The earlier M558 and M658 models had a different bolt shroud, and were fitted with the M55 and M65 profile stock.

    The M558 model (RH only) was called the 'Popular' if that helps your search. The stock is inletted with a side release latch on the right hand side to use the single-stack magazine of the M590/M595, which is what you need.

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    That's possible depending on the model if it's not a standard sporting rifle.

    I have spare M595 mags in .243/308 size, which look identical fitments to the pictures of the M558 series sold in Sweden (at least 30 yrs ago now).

    If you've actually got both (an M558, and a M590/M595) what models are they?

    Is it possible for you to take a pic of each mag, and post it?

    The exploded parts diagrams appear to have been dropped from the main website Tikka frontpage | Tikka, and some old parts appear to have been renumbered by Sako-Beretta.
