Affordable magazines for the 5.56mm Scout
I just bought my second Gunsite Scout Rifle, this time in 5.56mm.
I figured I would join the forum here to pass on the results of my attempt
to locate affordable, reliable magazines for it.
I already had a Remington 700 in .223 that I mounted in one of the new
Magpul Hunter 700 stocks. As Magpul doesn't offer a .223 AICS pattern
magazine, I ended up buying the 10-round polymer AICS format .223
magazines made by MDT. They work flawlessly in the Magpul stock, so
I tried them in the 5.56 Scout and found they would not latch.
To make a long story short: all I needed to do was to file a small notch at the
the top rear of the mag and it runs perfectly. The mag also still works in the
Remington/Magpul rifle. I modified 5 magazines this way and each one runs
Thought I would pass this on,
