    Is it only short action...I know you said it was for the short action, or do they offer it for the long action also?

    Okay, Fred, I'll take a frame and a 10 round mag and a inlet job. When do you want me to send the US stock?

    Will this also work on the UV stock?

    Is there a long action version in the works?

    uj

    P.S. Dare I ask how long it might take?

    I assume you can inlet a B&C A2 Medalist to accept these? If so I will be sending you two.

    Looks like there is a market for the long action people.

    Wow, good old American ingenuity at work. A wonderful thing to see. This is obviously a blessing for those guys who need/want more capacity. The design and execution seem to be of the best order. A long actin version wil be on the way I am sure. Hang in there guys, a genius is at work.

    Whose magazines are they. I know Fred is great at machine work and the bottom metal looks it, but sheet metal is a whole different discipline.

    Fred,

    You list it available for the Choate Utimate Sniper stock, will it also fit the Choate Varminter?

    I guess you couldn&#39;t make an even larger oblong front hole to fit my J action, huh?

    WOW!!! I shoulda checked here first just to confirm that nobody cares about short actions anymore....
    Well, yes....there is plans for a long action version BUT.....until the magazines are totally wrung out, field tested and approved, you won&#39;t see anything about it. That&#39;s why I kept this under wraps until I had it de-bugged and into production before I cut it loose, somehow I knew this would happen.
    .223....not out of the question, but not bloody likely for a long time.

    The Choate version will fit either stock, US or UV. I can inlet the Medalist, that&#39;s a given, but the only thing I don&#39;t know for sure is the depth of the stock in that area and it might be thicker, leaving the frame below the the wood line. Not that it would be a problem, just maybe unsightly, but I&#39;ll bet it&#39;s pretty close.

    The whole idea behind this was to make most of the applications "drop in" fits. Even for a stagger feed, one could use a stock originally for a centerfeed DBM and simply slot the front hole, or remove the pillar. The Choate Tactical stock is a good example: although it is for a new centerfeed DBM, the front hole that is through the aluminum chassis can be slotted back, and now it will fit a stagger feed. The B&C are the same way with the aluminum chassis, you could go either way.
    The DBM inlets will vary slightly from different manufactures, so it may be neccesary to tweak things with a dremel.
    "J" series.....OK, Frank....yer pushin&#39; it now. It would be possible, but that would be a total custom application.

    As to who is making the magazines...I am not at liberty to discuss that at this time, but I will say that they are used on alot of high-dollar custom tactical rigs.
