Preview: Ammo Boost Magazine Conversion Kits

posted on May 2, 2020
Legacy Sports Int’l. has announced its offering of detachable box magazine kits for Howa 1500 and Remington 700 BDL rifles—Ammo Boost. By simply replacing the action’s “bottom metal,” at-home gunsmiths and DIYers can easily upgrade from factory-configured closed-box or blind magazines to American-made detachable-box units through a simple conversion process.

Affordable, easy and practical, the Legacy Sports Int’l. Ammo Boost kits support a variety of market options, such as the Howa 1500 and Remington 700 BDL, long- or short-action configurations. In addition, Ammo Boost kit fits Weatherby Vanguard rifles, as well as Smith & Wesson 1500 and Mossberg 1500 bolt-action rifles. Kits will accommodate both standard and magnum chamberings, and are available for either five- or 10-round configurations. Supplementary magazines may be purchased separately.

MSRP starts at $69 for the complete kit, and installation time is just minutes. Legacy Sports Int’l. includes a new polymer floorplate with each American-made unit. An extended magazine release is ahead of the magazine well and articulates forward to release. Some applications may require minor inlet fitting.
