    They did for a while. It held 10 rounds and now as rare as hens teeth.

    As far as I am aware you can get a factory mag for 10 rounds. Much more robust.

    Trouble is they stick out so far for stalking

    This is true, although it has never caused any issues for me.

    Styria Arms in Austria now make a conversion to use the AI AICS magazines for 430 Euros including one mag. I'm thinking of getting one to convert my Steyr match rifle which has a cracked trigger guard.

    So let me get this right; you pay near $1700 for a rifle, and the magazine keeps breaking?

    I think I'd be on the phone to Steyr, having a "WTF?!?" conversation...

    bigssg - I have repaired SSG mags before but I would agree with M-PMI and make a phone call first.

    M275, I am blaming you. My other half already has it in for me for spending to much this month! I can't translate the pages though. Is the SSG stock their own design? Anyone bought one? Presumably you have to send your rifle to them to be bedded etc.

    They are quite delicate but from my experience only break when you drop them loaded from quite a height. Dont keep rounds in it when in transport etc. Try eGun to buy s/h.

    well these three have never been dropped it's the plastic squeeze part with the spring that's failed on two of them
