    I must admit I like a magazine for a rifle, but as per my gallery, the Sako has a magazine and the Remington has a floor plate. Over the years I have owned at least 5 Ruger MKIIs and I just got used to using the floor plate over time.

    i know what you are , i have had a remington in the past and i have a tikka t3 with a magazine (which is nice ) !

    i surpose ive just got lazy , by just taking out the magazine and putting in the glove box after ive finished stalking in stead of dropping the floor plate and actually putting the bullets away in their pouch !

    like you say if i cant find one ill just have to get used to it

    Also I've heard of people having feeding problems with muaser type actions using detachable magazines. I've read about a number of people saying the feeding from a cz550 magazine is not as smoothe/reliable as from a floorplate one. I think it's hard to duplicate the integral solid feed lips with a pressed steel magazine.

    Anyway they're no problem - should have a fair it more capacity than the tikka cos they're double stack! Maybe even 5 +1? I assume as that's what a mauser'll take
