    This would be my first thread. I have enjoyed searching your forum and made a recent purchase from one of your members. All in all this seems like a great forum with honest people. I'm a Floridan who likes to shoot with family and friends.

    Now that my intro is out of the way. I wanted to reach out to the Savage B17 owners and the shoppers. I guess I can do a half*%$ review on this out of box tack driver. But that sentence probably says it all. I'm really impressed with the accuracy of this rifle. For under 300 buck, plus scope, rings, and bipod I got a under 1 MOA rifle @ 50 yards. No tricks, just a shooter right out of the box.
    I'm starting to think it's not fair to shoot kyl targets at 50yrd, may have to move them out to 100. So may be I'm crazy but with all this fun plinkinster my factory mag was becoming a drag. 10 rounds just goes by so fast. I called Savage and they explained that both the A17 and the B17 share the same rotary mag. So I decided to order the Butler Creek A17 25 round Magazines. Thinking this would be an awesome upgrade over the stock 10 rounder. Well she didn't fit...
    So I took her to the work bench and started take measurement. With a few modification to the magazine she is now sitting pretty and feeding perfectly! So to anyone who has asked or was curious. It can be done! 25 round hi-cap mag for the B17 is available. It should take you 5 mins with a grinding wheel, set of files, and a bit of sand paper to clean her up! PM me or email me if you want pictures!

    PM sent. I would love to see the pictures! I recently picked up a B17 FV-SR and a 25 round mag, but it's not obvious to me which parts need to be ground down.
