Short Action DBM for AICS magazines
Fits short action Remington 700 and all custom / clone actions. Drop in fit for stocks with the Badger M5 inlet.
Our take on how the Remington 700 Short Action DBM should be made. Accepts any AICS short action magazine and available in either 316 marine-grade stainless steel (passivated - silver colour) or 4140 ordnance steel (QPQ nitrided - black colour).
Both variants are CNC machined from a single billet of steel. Aluminium alloy is avoided completely, however we do include bedding pillars for stocks without a bedding block, which are machined from 6061-T6 then gold anodised. Magazine release levers are the same steel grade as the DBM. All minor components are 316 stainless steel, including the spring, roll-pin, lever, and action screws (all included).
Weighing in at 250g (0.55 lbs) the little extra weight compared to an aluminium DBM is negligible when evaluating the added benefits of using these high grade steels. They won't scratch or dent like aluminium does when a hard impact is encountered and the teflon coated AICS magazines slide in and lock up with very little abrasion unlike aluminium where the anodising wears off over time in the key friction points.
If you have access to one of our units, check the differences for yourself as the difference in build is immediately obvious upon handling them. If not the closest comparison to quality would be the bullet proof feel the one piece trigger guards on military k98 mausers and the custom big game safari rifles are built with - but with precise manufacturing methods and for detachable box magazines.
If you are working on a custom build and are looking for the toughest DBM available - this is it.
