I take it the M24-A2 is using the H-S Precision detachable box mag? I'm guessing, but it makes sense. It looks pretty nifty.

I may be wrong but I think they are switching to badger/AI setup.

It uses a trigger guard that doesn't look like Badger. That's why I concluded that it's H-S Precision since it's their stock too.

I think currently they do use hs but I keep hearing they are switching ti AI/Badger and that is why the AI mags are hard to find. I could be wrong but that is the excuse I keep getting for no one but Sniper Country having mags in stock.

Remington doesn't say on there site either

They do say 4 or 10 round mags and it is an HS stock so I am assuming it is an HS mag. Photos look like the HS as well.

I have HS mags in 4 and 10 round if you need a reference picture to compare to a picture of existing M24 mags.

It would be weird if they are using HS Precision magazines in this Army Snpier rifles since the Marine Corps recently went with the Badger/AI magazine system for all of their M40A3 systems.

IIRC the US Army went with the HSP mags as the M24 uses the MSP stock and the unit was a drop in for conversion.

Not weird at all, expected actually...
Those two always do something different just to be different.

You think it would be easier to standardize between branches especially in war time.

It certainly would, but it's harder to crush the egos.
Army does not want to "follow" Marines.
Marines do not want to "follow" Army.

Longstanding rivalry.

Keep in mind that the M40 uses a Rem 700 short action and the M24 uses the long action.

They're totally different services and unrelated commands. They don't have to standardize. These rifles are chosen because of proprietary reasons inherent in the job that these weapon systems will be utilized in. That may not be apparent to some.
