54 sporter question

I have a Savage Anschutz 54 Sporter in 22 mag. Iím looking to buy an extra mag or two. Do I need to buy original or will newer ones work?

A new original mag will work the same as an old original mag., but it will have an orange plastic follower and you will probably notice a "slight" price increase.

I think that the magnum magazines still use a metal follower.
It's the 22lr magazines that had the change to plastic long ago.

Order the one that is indicated for a 22 magnum. Another similar version exists that is now specified as being better for 17hmr.Initially, Anschutz used the 22 mag magazine for both calibers.

After a quick search. I found that Anschutz North America has the 4 round mags list with a disclaimer. They may not work in older rifles. Should I be concerned?

No reason for concern, as Camster says buy the one for WMR.

I think that possible fitment issues pertain to using current 22lr magazines in early (pre-60) sporters, not .22 magnum magazines.
