    And so when man and horse go down beneath a saber keen, or in a roaring charge of fierce melee you stop a bullet clean, and the hostiles come to get your scalp, just empty your canteen, put your pistol to your head and go to Fiddlers green. U.S Army Cavalry

    Can't help you out on hi-cap magazines or an effective modification but that is one cool rifle just as it is! It's one of those unsung designs that was well-engineered. It featured a one-piece stock with attractive lines when competitive semi-auto sporter rifles had two-piece stocks. Only thing was, it was too expensive to manufacture and sell at a competitive price and so ended up discontinued. It's a shame too as it was high quality, rugged and accurate. It has a cult following among the knowledgeable. In my opinion it was a definite step up from the Remington Model 742.

    A old business associate once had a Model 100 in .284 Winchester. He thought it had a bad bore but it was just badly fouled. He'd never cleaned it once since he bought it brand new. The rifle gave 8-inch 5-shot groups at 100 yards from the bench rest. I took it home one day and scrubbed the bore, soaking it in Sweet's 7.62 bore solvent until all copper fouling was removed. After that it shot very well. I enjoyed playing with the rifle and the cartridge. Always had a yen for one.

    A company named Colyer used to make an 8-round extension magazine many years ago. I didn't figure one could be found these days but hit on one on a search. It would be a handy little addition to the fellow with a Winchester Model 100.

    Thanks, I have a ten round and a five round mag for mine, a lot of people say you can't even find the ten round mags anymore, I'm gonna break it down and give it a more aggressive and better cleaning. Being a "rare" rifle is cool but getting stuff for it is a pain and expensive, might trade it for another rifle or just keep it hanging around as my hunting rifle

    I have built a couple by using the stock 4 round mag body and factory steel HK G3 20RD magazines, they fit and function excellently and look nice, they are now WINCHESTER 100 .308-7.62x51mm 20rd Mag's, I have only ever built a few as that is all I needed but they definitely work,
    I can send you some pictures and a short synopsis on the how to.DSCN2931.JPGDSCN2935.JPGDSCN2932.JPG

    The mags look like they have a catch filed in the front and rear, if you could find a mag that fits the magwell and file the catches into the mag and it should work, might be better then modifying a 61 dollar mag plus the cost of the hk mag

    I know this is an old thread, but has anyone else extended the model 100 mags? The G3 mod looks very doable, any input is appreciated.

    It is more than just the lockup the feed lips must clear the bolt face and the round presentation must be at the correct angle,
    I just completed the step by step with pics and will post tomorrow.
