    convert to internal box magazine from hinged floor plate

    I have a Savage 16 Stainless 7mm-08 that I got a Stockade stock for. I need to convert my hardware from the original hinged floor plate to an internal box magazine. Folks have told me i can use the original magazine box and spring/follower, but I need some additional hardware. What parts, exactly, do I need, and where can I get them? THANKS!!

    Just squeeze the sides of the magazine box to remove from DBM bottom cap. My Stockade mag well was pretty tight and held the mag box and follower in place. A wood shim in front or back will work. I’ve also used four small balls of plumber epoxy putty in the well corners. Put release agent on metal to remove magazine after 15 minutes and trim excess putty before it fully cures. I don’t like using the Savage L-clip under the action. But you can call Savage Arms parts to order.
