Many of us love our bolt action rifles just the way they came home with us from the gun store. The sleek lines, beautiful stocks, and high-quality barreled actions sometimes see us through decades of hunting duty and sometimes your favorite rifle can also be a great competition piece – if only it had a higher capacity. MambaMag hopes to allow people to convert their factory rifles to higher capacity without the need for any drastic permanent modifications. MambaMag is a new sister company to MDT (Modular Driven Technologies) which specializes in aftermarket rifle chassis for popular bolt-action rifles like the Tikka T series and the Howa 1500 lineup.
MambaMag – Increase Capacity without Compromising Your Rifle
For some rifles, the MambaMag Bottom Metal is a simple conversion for your factory stock which will allow it to be used with a MambaMag detachable box magazine. Like the magazines, the Bottom metal will be made from 6061-T6 Aluminum and will also feature a steel mag latch. The bottom metal piece will also feature a front magazine catch as well as a rear one to allow the magazines to drop free while still offering the most reliable feeding. At the time of writing, the MambaMag Bottom Metal is currently only available for Remington 700 short action rifles as well as Howa 1500 Short actions. Pricing on the bottom metal components regardless of platform starts at $179.95 and comes with all the hardware needed to make the conversion
MambaMag is the rebirth of the Lucky Thirteen brand of aftermarket rifle magazines. They’re a 10rd box magazine that fits straight into most factory rifles. Our bottom metal for Remington 700 and Howa 1500 convert your factory stock to be able to use these new magazines. They work great for hunting, plinking or shooting precision rifle matches.
The new lineup will make use of one or two components depending on the rifle you are wanting to field. The core component is obviously the new magazines from MambaMag. These straight-fit magazines feature a machined 6061-T6 Aluminum upper section which will allow for durable and reliable attachment and feeding, meanwhile the polymer lower section will keep the magazines light and according to MambaMags, “give a warmer feel for magazine removal and handling.” Each magazine will feature a removable bottom cover plate which will allow you access to the internals for maintenance and cleaning purposes. Each magazine will feature a 10-round capacity and be made from a combination of 6061-T6 machine aluminum and Glass-reinforced nylon body and bottom cover plate. Each magazine is priced at $119.95 regardless of platform and will come in either .223 or .308 configurations.
