    I'm really interested in finding the parts, and or person that could inform me or do a mag conversion on my 700. It is chamberd in .223. If it is a drop-in set up then I am comfortable doing it on my own, it seems as though it requires some modifications though.

    I haven't found a kit that says it is specifically for .223. Do they make one?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Badger Ordinance, CDI, PT&G.... Many folks make kits, typically based on the AI design.
    As long as a little inletting doesn't cause you to wet yourself, then it is a drop-in procedure. Most folks follow the AI box mags, so geared on the 308 case. Your big enough to use Google for yourself, search the company who product you like and see if they build specifically what you want. If the website doesn't day, in sure they have a telephone number listed.

    Right.

    I have googled extensively, hence "I haven't found a kit that says it is specifically for .223. Do they make one?".

    Inletting is fine. I can manage that..

    Thanks for your input.

    It takes pretty strong google foo to find that one when Pacific names it...

    DETACH MAG BOTTOM METAL (DBM)

    Pacific makes a great product, and they are an Oregon based company!

    Seriously. I consider myself to be very Google savy too.

    Local is also a plus!

    Thanks again for the help, man. It is getting ordered tonight.

    Pacific worked for me easily. But I have to warn you it required a gunsmith and also required that I leave a specific round that I will be using.

    Gotcha.

    Do you know what your gunsmith had to do?

    I'm comfortable with intermediate level gunsmithing, I was a gunsmith in the army.

    inletting.... and my gunsmith Koonce in Salem works more on those that messed it up. It was inletting and then working on the magazines ti make them work and cycle the rounds. It's not an easy drop in sometimes.
