Is there some sort of detatchable mag you can put on a M1, in .30-06?
I don't think so.
You might try to find a Beretta M59, 62 etc. They did some conversions to 7.62x51 when NATO went that way, but AFAIK there aren't any M2 ('06) removable mag conversions.
Short answer : no.
Long answer : no.
Springfield Armory in their quest for making the M14 rifle, did along the way covert a M1 so it could use BAR magazines. This was done in the late 40's- early 50's. How it was done I have no idea. I would think such a conversion now would not be worth it.
The original M 14 with a detachable magazine was created by Berreta from an M 1 Garand. However the amount of modification costs would be prohibitive. A different trigger housing that I believe is longer to accept a removable magazine is the first to overcome, along with several other modifications to get it to work correctly. Take a look at Springfield's M1A1s.
In fact buying one of those would be the way to go if you abolsolutely needed a magazine fed instead of an enblock 8 round clip!
