FAQ:

 

What is the difference between detachable magazine and a hinged floorplate?

Hinged Floor Plate advantages in custom hunting rifles include dirt control, being lighter than a detachable magazine, convenient loading, as well as better feeding and cartridge seating.

Benchrest favors the detachable magazine due to faster loading and unloading, its convenient and portable nature, and simplified fast change of ammunition type. The detachable magazine prevents ammo dump while loading, and satisfies a larger cartridge capacity needed in competition shooting.

Dual purpose rifles used for both hunting and competition match shooting, are recommended to use detachable magazines favoring multiple rounds fired during a timed match.

 

How do you choose the right bottom metal for a custom rifle?

First, you must determine which purpose your long range rifle will serve – hunting, match or both. This largely influences the type of precision rifle bottom metal you choose. Other equally important deciding factors include; type of action and stock, caliber and style including Remington or Oberndorf, H.S. or Wyatts as well as cartridge capacity and if you prefer single or staggered feed?

 

How do hinged floorplates work on a hunting rifle?

A hinged floor plate kit is engineered to swing open by depressing a switch generally found on the trigger, while remaining attached to the rifle. A spring and follower mechanism is found on the bottom of your floor plate. The follower is what follows the cartridge up the magazine. This type of bottom metal allows for fast unloading, better seating and smoother feeding to enhance your bolt action.
