    Hi folks,
    I have a Remington 760 Gamemaster in 30.06 that was manufactured circa 1955.

    I have one box magazine for it and I'm interested in getting another. But really, I'm wondering if anyone knows of an extended magazine and where I could buy one. Something like a 10 round would be ideal.

    I did a search on here and didn't find any solid clues or answers.

    TIA,

    Ralph

    Yes thre are several manufacturers that build extended magazinesfor the 760 and its semi-auto cousin the 740/742/7400 (the same magazine fits in both rifles)

    One is Eagle International which makes a plastic 10 rounds, black or transparent.

    Another is made by Triple-K, is an all steel 10 rounds, just Google Remington, 760 and magazine you will find several vendors online.

    Another one is a 12 rounds all steel, I do not know the brand but you can get one easily googling the words I suggested already.

    These magazines are very easy to find at gun shows.

    Here's a link to Brownell's -

    760 and 740 magazines

    As you can see from the ad copy, there are two models. One for the 740 and the other for the 760. I believe the one pictured is for the 740 types, as it has the bolt release button, for "last round hold-open".

    I also believe that the extended magazines dispense with this feature, which won't bother you at all as you have a 760.
