I purchase this a while ago and had to file quite a bit to get the latch to engage. After that, like other raters here, I was having very frustrating feed issues if I put more than 4 .308 rnds in. I finally figured out why it was not feeding properly. The spring capture tabs in the bottom of the extender are too far forward and cause the cartridge to tilt bullet up. Just lift the spring up out of the little recess and push it rearward (till it hits the rear extender wall near latch)and apply a little epoxy. This thing will feed all seven now. With all the headache $25 is still

Got one of these as the only option to the insane $$ others want for Mag Conversions.

Very simple to install. A little worried about breaking off the spring holder, but with a little time and patience it slide right in and held perfect.

I too had an issue with it hitting the guard, but a few seconds with a file and x-acto and it's all good! I'd rather make it a custom fit than to have it loose and sloppy. If you can't customize it to fit, you might not want to be tinkering with your rifle!

I cycled a couple of FULL loads through it and never once did it skip a beat! AMAZING!! A $20 fix for a $300 problem! I love it! Now I can use my 700SPS on my KD AQT!!

Thanks Guys!!!

I think this is what all Remington 700 VTR owners want, quite easy to install
with picture guide on web page..

Downside bit expensive for a plastic moulding had to finish off rough edges on cartridge stop to allow it
to fit into extender housing, and generally enhance looks

A better option would have been a aluminium injection moulding more
precise especially if done in black finish, would certainly enhance looks

I appreciate that would cost more, but im sure Remington owners would still buy it, please do it for future versions, i would certainly buy again !!

I received the mag extender today, arrived in 4 days so the shipping was very fast-Thanks! It went together without a hitch and fit nicely BUT!! I had some isseus with the mag spring plate hitting the inside of the mag extender. this would stop the spring plate and only allow me to load 5 rounds. I was able to inlet the mag extender mouth " I guess we will call it that" and then it started working just fine. Im sure i voided any warrenty by doing so but oh well. For the price, this mag extender is definately a good upgrade from the original floor plate on my 700P. I would recomend this to anyone looking to upgrade, without spending 500 on removable mag upgrade. JJ

Mag-Extender arrived on time. Installed very easily as per the instructions. Does what it is made for, holds extra rounds. Looks great and i didn't have to put out an extra 500 bucks. A little tight releasing but it will loosen in time.

Works exactly as expected and looks like it was always there. Easy install with a little sticky release. Worked smooth after a little crocus cloth.

looked good went to install it but found that it didn't clear the trigger guard. I had to file down the front of the mag-xtender to get a good fit . A little tight at first but worked it out and it loosed up .

worst 20$ I have spent, it didn't do what it said it would, My rifle held 5 to start and would only hold 5 after and they didn't want to feed with it on. It also does not open when you want to empty your rifle. STAY AWAY!!!!!!

Functions fine and a great value. Just be prepared to do some minor fitting. You can fit it with a small file and some 220 grit paper. This way it locks up nicely with no slop or rattle. I have the 223 version and it will fit 9 but 8 is more realistic for smooth operation. As for Aesthetics, it looks like a higher priced DBM.
A good tip: when mounting the new mag, drive the pin in with the mag open. There is a bit more material towards the rear of the mag, if you try it with the mag closed it may bind. After you drive the pin in, then check if it closes and adjust fit if needed.

The parts come untrimmed and do not fit without plenty of debugging. The latch area needed plenty of scraping to fit. The slide-in cartridge locator for the .223 would not fit without trimming. I've only been able to get the original 5 rounds to fit without binding, but think I have a solution. If you don't have lots of patience and some mechanical skill, don't buy it.

I bought this item bc it was only $20 and figure why not "give it a try" until I can save up money for a detatchable mag conversion... Well, once I got it and installed it, I quickly realized how solid it actually was and it has always cycles perfectly. Although I still have to load from the top, having that 7+1 rounds makes it easy to accept that. I have surprisingly decided that in fine with using this item for longer than planned!! Everyone that has seen it, and shot with it, is surprised it was only $20 and bought one. I'm glad I took the plunge!

Advantages: 7+1 rounds of 308, small and compact, great fit, strong material, fast installation, only $20, LOOKS GREAT on my HS Ptecision PSS stock!!

Disadvantages: I can't really think of any, maybe coming with a longer spring for more "confidence" although mine works fine....

I just purchased this for my Remmy 700 VTR in .223 and I've got to say I'm impressed with this BDL extender. Like many of the other people I had to do some minor filing in order to get keep it locked in place, but that was simple. I love the low profile of this piece and knowing I have a 9+1 system on my rifle is wonderful.

Advantages: Low profile and easy to install.
With the .223 the factory bottom metal has a stopper to hold the spring in place so it feeds perfectly.

Disadvantages: This is only if you don't like top feeding on a BDL, but its hard to keep 9+1 from spilling out everywhere if you feed from the bottom, but I've always fed the rounds from the top so no real impact for me.

Great addition to a 700, small bore or large is all the same.
Even though I shoot 5 round groups at the range. I have when hunting loaded up 8 to 10 rounds. No feed problems as long as you follow the torque recs.
I over torqued and found issues, reset the action with new extender with recommended and superb.

Advantages: 6 Additional rounds in the mag well.

Easy to install, however the magazine follower seemed to be a little loose and tilted. Really not a problem, still a great product.

Advantages: Easy installation
