    Anyone have a lead on a gunsmith that would be able to fabricate a magazine box for a Kimber of Oregon 223 Rem......just purchase a rifle and the box is not correct.
    Any surplus part available....I checked the normal places (Numrich,Brownells and Gun Broker).
    I'm wanting to make this rifle a repeater that feeds reliably.
    Thanks Mitch

    Try Nick at Albany Guns. If there is one to be had, He will either have it or know where one is.

    Shockme....
    I'm not sure of the production date....barrel is marked Clackamas. Anyway of being able to determine manufacturing date? I found the correct magazine box from Nick in Albany.....now I have to fit the follower to the box. Any recommendations on a local smith for the work?
    Thanks Mitch
