    Yea, I know I could/should just buy another rifle, but I like my savage 110.
    I would like to however, convert from the internal magazine to an external magazine.
    It doesn't look like the internal magazine is attached very securely and it looks like a fairly simple modification.

    Anyone attempt this? Anyone have any recommendations?

    I'd look at the new Classic stocks (I think these are available on the aftermarket) and go from there since I believe these have an integral floor plate. Without a more thorough analysis, the main problem I can envisage with this is that the trigger guard would have to be replaced if it has a typical release mounted there. Might be worthwhile to find a friendly smith/gun builder in your locale and get their opine as well regarding cost/benefit.

    I think I will just look for another bolt rifle with a detachable magazine. Dunno what caliber yet.
