magazine for westernfield 20 guage!!!

Postby bstrandon » Tue Nov 06, 2012 4:11 pm

Hello all,
I desperately need a replacement magazine for an older bolt action Westernfield 20 guage, model EMN 176. I have found one online store that lists it, but they are sold out and don't seem to know where I can find one. I am looking for ANY good sites to search, or anyone who otherwise knows where I can find one!

Thanks

check out Numrich Arms, or Gun Parts Incorporated.

I also have the 20-gauge and needed a magazine for it. Several months back, Numrich had the magazine for the 12-gauge, but not for the 20-gauge. Someone on a forum told me that the 12-gauge magazine would fit my 20-gauge and all I needed to do was bend in the shell-retaining lips slightly with a pair of pliers to ensure that the magazine would retain 20-gauge shells. So I tried it and it works like a charm.

So keep an eye on Numrich (and any other gun-parts websites) and if you don't find a 20-gauge magazine, look for a 12-gauge and do what I did.
