That's a factory 591 stock that happened to be an early walnut stock. My good friend who is consequently a gunsmith did the checkering on it for me. And the bolt head I made I used a mini sako extractor from ptg, an ar15 firing pin that is cut down and an ar15 plunger ejector.

I have an action sitting on my shelf for a similar conversion. Any chance you have dimensional drawings and a few more pictures of your project? I'd love to have a set handy when I get inspired and can spend some time in the shop.

The AMT AutoMag III used a 8 round 30 carbine magazine, but if it were me I'd cut a 32ACP magazine lengthwise and extend the width to your needs. A new follower and box spring would be needed, but given the short box length a couple captivated coil springs could be made to work.

A Brno ZKW465 or one of the CZ magazines for 22 Hornet can be opened up to take the 30 carbine case, I had a Brno ZKW465 that had been successfully converted to 5.7 Johnson, went from 5 shot to 4, but that didnt matter. It was a rough conversion by the previous owner and I believe that they opened the internal size of the magazine by inserting a steel billet and hammering it so the internal ribs were flattened out to the wider size.

Maybe you could look at that or someway of fitting a ZKW/CZ hornet magazine.

Camel and johnly, both good suggestions for the magazine! I may head in one of those directions.

Pm me an email and I'll scan some dimension drawing and send them to you. They are more of a guide and no dimensions are actually set in stone. It's kinda a do what you want project.

Anything specific you want to see closer?
