Title says it all: any PRODUCTION bolt-action rifles that take M14 mags? I vaguely recall Blaser made one w/ a folding stock a while ago. Any others? TIA.

The only bolt rifle I can think of that takes M14 mags is a Remington 700 with after market trigger guard. I think Badger Ord made them.

McMillan use to make a bolt-action rifle that used M14 magazine.

Not sure if their current production TAC-308 uses M14 magazines or something else.

Pardon me while I dream.

I wish Ruger would modify the Frontier to take unmodified M14 mags. I'd love to have something like this:

Looks easy enough. He cut the top portion of the mag, the feed lips to be specific, to fit the magazine. He also had the magazine lock in place with the trigger guard plate and nothing on the front. The solution is simple. A new trigger guard plate it made that incorporates the hinge type mag release found on the M14. The "feed lips" on the frontier are intergal to the bolt rail. If you milled out just the inner portion of those feed lips where the M14 mag feed lips come into contact it would be able to seat high enough. Then the only problem you would have to worry about is the ejector. Replace the fixed ejector with a plunger ejector and that solves that problem.

Might be a fun project. Honesty, I'd rather try my hand at rebarreling an Mini 14 with a better barrel and making a new trigger guard to accept AR mags. It shouldn't be too hard. Hell, it might just be easier to make an AR mag apadter and inlet the stock to accpt it.

Yes, the AIA enfield - but you can't get it in the US. Available to aussies and canuks only at this time...

The Badger M5 uses the AICS mags from Accuracy International.

I would be very interested in one of these.
Why isnt anyone importing them to the US?
These are made in AU.? I wouldnt have thought that was possible, especially after seeing all the NRA films of all thier rifles going into the smelter!

You see an M40A3-type rifle with what looks like an M14 magazine. Maybe you can e-mail them and inquire about it? :confused:

I think the new M10 Enfields turned out to be manufactured in Vietnam, so they are not allowed to be imported into the U.S. at this time because of State Department rules on importing arms from countries we can't sell arms to.

Looks more like a 10 round AICS mag.

Re: The AIA Enfield

Two importers (tristar and sabre) have tried, and failed, to import the AIA enfield into the US. Charles Daley has a post up on thr forum saying that they will "look into" importing the rifles, but I will not hold my breath because it does look like the made in vietnam label causes problems with the BATF.

Australians and Brits still have access to bolt action rifles. The day Lee-Enfields are banned from them, is the day you know all is lost...

AIA says it is planning to make a 5.56 version, which would be super sweet!
