Bleh. My friend installed one, he claims he installed it correctly but it rattles . Really really bad.



Not worth it to me.

Just curious, but is it possible to purchase a Remington detachable magazine kit? I realize that it'd most likely be a 5 rounder but I've never heard of anyone adding one to a 700 that didn't come with it?

I haven't used it, but since I have a 700 in .308, I'm also interested in how well they work and what the costs involved are. Here are 2 threads on THR that you probably should read:

http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=73706&highlight=Remington+700+magazine+conversion

Here's a website in the latter thread for an English company that does the conversions. How you'd get the gun to the UK for them to do the work, and how they'd get it back to you, I don't know, but anyway here's the site:

When I looked into these, for some reason they don't seem to make it in .308!!!

This is substantiated by the fact that the 700_SPS_DM (http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/centerfire_rifles/model_700/model_700_SPS_DM_specs.asp) (Detachable Magazine) is available in six calibers, and .308 is not one of them. I don't understand why Remington would neglect this caliber, but apparently they don't do .308 detachable magazines.

From the Cabela's link in the above post:
Will work with the following calibers: .25-06, .264 Win. Mag., .270 Win., .280 Rem., 7mm Exp., 7mm Mauser, 7mm Rem. Mag., .30-06, and .300 Win. Mag.

I see your pic from ebay and it looks very complete but is it for the .308 and how did you find it?

Looks to me like all six of those cartridges are long action. Remington probably decided there wasn't enough market for short-action detachable mags to justify the investment to make a second type of magazine kit. Half the people looking for box mags for their .308 700 are going to go for an M14 mag conversion anyway.

Remington did make the short action 700 with detachable magazines. Some number of them had problems, and they have a bad reputation on the web because of hi-viz complaints. I have a 700 in .308 that has never stuttered, hesitated or misfed. They will do so if the mag is not fully and properly seated, though, and the mag arrangement is a little fiddly.

The good aftermarket kits are pricey but supposed to work well - if correctly installed.

Wow, they're still making those. I installed a Kwik Klip in my first rifle, a Rem.700 in 30-06, nearly 20 years ago. I still have it. It works OK. My rifle was an ADL, which made it a little harder to install because of the inletting.

IIRC, it came with little shims for adjustment. Mine fit tight and didn't rattle. My only complaints are that four rounds fit real tight, mag OAL was shortened, and you can't insert a round from the top. You have to take the mag out to add a round. I always thought about getting that ten-rounder, but never did.

I don't know if they have changed the design in the last couple decades, though. Overall I would say it is a good conversion if adjusted right.

do they just call it a "clip" for advertising because those look like magazines to me...

I have had and thoroughly used one on a .270 for 25 years and love it! I have no rattle whatsoever.

We use most of these, I like the CDI and the Badger the best, I have a Badger on a 700, works good, but next time around it will be the CDI as they were not available when I put the first rifle together.

Excellent...and are preferred by some because of the release configuration, we have not done a lot of builds using this type, mainly customers want whatever the military guys are using. The 'side release' push button mag release is nice.

Don't waste your money on "aftermarket". I installed the lower mag trigger guard for a Remington 700 on my Sendero to use the factory mags. I just had to file a little off the aluminum frame in the stock & cut the "cutouts" for the factory mag release & wella! Looks like factory installed. Bought five, 5 round mags to give me 25 shots without having to shove ammo past my Burris Black Diamond. Doesn't rattle or make any noise. This is easy to install, took me less than 45 minutes to keep things looking good. Try it, you won't regret it.

I actually liked the look of the seekins over badgers or CDI precision, but seekins is the only one I havent seen in person.

I got this kit today. It will be here in about a week. Check out this video. I don't see any way you could go wrong with it.

I just bought the kwik klip kit, don't really like it. It came with 4 round clip also bought 10 round clip. Install was easy took 5 minutes. The clips are really low quality and rattle, made from thin metal and look cheap as well. I wish I would have spent more money and got a better kit.

Ricky knows his stuff, and is a very competent gunsmith. I've worked with many aftermarket (and factory) DM's for Remington and hope to wring out one of these from Wyatt very soon. Seems to be very competitively priced, and advertised to fit factory BDL inlet. 5 or 10 round for Short action.

I did, which is why I refrained from posting anything pertaining to the first couple of "dated" posts pertaining to the Remington 700 magazine system. But since this thread has come back, I'll throw in.

My Remington 700 SPS with the Remington Detachable Magazine system is frustrating at best. I have seen USGI AR mags that work better than the R700's DM system. Sadly, the follower in mine likes to find it's way out of the magazine shell (Retaining stamps not stamped in far enough) and for the price of 45$ per, I'd rather pick up a different magazine system that uses less shoddy magazines.

It works, ok, the last round usually requires a quick push to load, as a slow one will end up with the dang thing trying to pop out of the breach area :) It is also only 4 rounds in the .308 version. I have managed to squeeze 5 in, but it is too difficult to cycle the bolt with the magazine in.

I'm also interested in more about the Wyatt's DBM system.

EDIT: Forgot to add that the Remington DBM is supported by very few (if any) stock makers, which makes it an absolute PITA to find stocks for unless you wish to modify the stock for the Rem DBM or convert to another DBM.
