which of the .243 mags did you buy? do you know if there is a difference between the two they have listed?
The mag design, or atleat the release design, may be the only flaw on this nice little gun. I remember losing a mag when I was a kid. very easy to push the release when carrying the gun allowing the mag to fall out when you move your hand.
I think I actually bought a 6mm mag for it because I couldn't find a .243 at the time. Long before the interet!!
My son, while recovering his deer from a ravine this fall, accidentally released the magazine on his .308 788. We haven't been able to recover it. Point is, get spares. They're easier to lose than you think.
