Question Savage .22 WMR Magazine fit in a Marlin .22 Mag Rifle?

Pretty much what the title says,

Hey guys, I just bought a Marlin XT-22 Magnum bolt-action and the max magazine made for this rifle is 7 rounds. I have heard that the Savage 10 round .22WMR magazines will fit in the Marlin rifles and I was wondering if any of you can confirm this to be true or have experienced this swap yourselves?

Judging from the picture below, they do look awfully similar:

Savage mags are pricey. Marlin mag is squared in the front. Savage mag is tapered/more rounded. The latch ridge on the rear is a different length too.

You never can tell until you either try, or get information on what fits. a good example, I have a Kimber .22, and Remington Mod. 11 mags are interchangeable. Benelli .22 pistol mags fit a Colt Target, etc.

Yeah it's too bad the Savage magazines are like twice as much $, so it's a gamble. I've been goin to the range often and I think I'll just stick with my 7 round mags.. no bid deal, much better then those lame 4rnd ones that came with the rifle.

if you know someone that has a .22mag or a .17 savage the mags are the same. I have both if you want to meet some place and try them in your gun to see let me know .
