Franklin Armory 10rd magazine?



Log in to see fewer ads
Does any of the Franklin Armory .17 WSM owners have the 10rd magazine and how do they like them compared to the current 10/20rd and 20rd magazines? It seems that FA has stopped manufacturing the 10rd and is only making the 10/20 & 20rd magazines. What are (were) they made out of, the current machined aluminum or a polymer? While the current 10/20rd magazines are machined aluminum and high quality (and heavy or weighty) I'd like to get a couple 10rd magazines for the shorter length and therefore lower profile. I just don't see them for sale anywhere. Also for those using the FA .17 WSM for hunting, what do you do for round restriction in the magazine? Just load it only with the required number of rounds?

I have two of the original ten round mags. I like them, but they sit a bit low when I'm shooting from the bench. I definitely like them better than the 20 round mags, just because of the length. I'm hoping they go polymer at some point and offer 5, 10 and 20 round mags. I would really like four in 5-round configurations for hunting situations.

+1. I don't need that many rounds when hunting, and would rather carry a spare 5 rounder in my pocket.

glad I have company! Thanks guys, and I definitely agree about carrying an extra five round magazine. So were the 10er's machined aluminum too?

I'm almost half tempted to shorten one of these 10/20rd magazines to the ten round mark and then attach a floorplate to it. Maybe something like a groove machined into the inside on both (long) sides of the mag and have it slide in... Got to think about that as they are pricey if it didn't work out

Scratch that idea. With the window running the full length of the magazine on both sides there wouldn't be any strength front to back if it was shortened without at the least welding the baseplate in. I'm out. Come on Franklin Armory!!

I have 2 of the 20's. 10's would be better, but 5's are what I'm really after, and polymer would be nice. Those metal 20's are HEAVY.
