  • Make Magazine for Remington 504

    Thinking someone has surely already done this and not have to reinvent the wheel...
    Rem 504 clips have been discontinued for several years now. Can buy from evilbay for like 90 bucks. Ouch! The 597 magazine is similar (in appearance anyway). My question is, can this be fitted for a 504? Any suggestions appreciated.

    Deerdog, I thought someone might answer this but they'd likely have to see them side by side. or at least photos of such. Some folks can do incredible work with a file and a TIG welder. RD

      To answer my own question, yes can be done fairly easily with a square edge of flat file. Dimensionally they are the same except for the latch groove. Care must be taken to get the groove cleanly square or will not lock into the rifle. Don't ask me how I know. Lol
      The homemade clip functions well. Ugly as my first girlfriend.

        Ive noticed that mags for many guns appear almost identical except for the latch slot and could probably be used for multiple guns if the manufacturers would put more than one latch slot on them

          Look at some of the Winchester clips and maybe some Marlins. I think that one of those is the same magazine. Maybe something else made in Serbia.
