Can anyone advise me on a reliable detachable magazine system for a Remington clone chambered in 17 fireball. One that works and without major problems.

Im not sure it will, this is a very small cartridge.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: mikki</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Im not sure it will, this is a very small cartridge. </div></div>... that is based on the 223 Rem case. I'm with RWS, it should work with 223 Rem magazines.

Cheers,

The AI mags for the 223 will not feed the 17 Fireball. I haven't tried to modify the mags to get them to work though. They might work if you put a spacer in the back of the mag.

Surely someone must have had this issue in the past and got around it.
