    Scar 17 hunting question magazines (clips what ever you call it )

    Whats up guys , got a question gonna be setting the SCAR 17 up as HOg hunting/DEER hunting rifle and was wondering about the magazines. I have only the 20 rounders, do they make 5 round clips for it or some kind of block for the magazine ? I live in N.C., got any pics of your hunts and information on this would be great, thanks again !!!

    First of all, as long as it looks like a box it's called a magazine, not clip, no matter how many rounds it hold. You can 10 rounders from Molon labe industry and install the 5 round block if you want to.

    They make a 5 rounder too, but link is broken on my end.

    First thing I recommend is try looking at the forum sponsers and see if any of them supply mag blocks. If none do try www.magazineblocks.com, I have purchased mag blocks from them in the past and they work well.

    Why not just hunt with the 20 rounder if you are in NC? There is no mag limit in NC (to my knowledge), so just load 5 shots if that is what you want.

    I know over here in east NC there is no capacity limit. Even so I usually only take a few shells. And it's definitely magazine.

    Wild boar in most states are also considered pests, and can be hunted 'unrestricted'. Always check the rules of the state though.

    I use the factory 10-round mags for hog hunting and they work great. Low profile and much lighter.

    I have used the 20s unmodified and a 20 with a block from magazineblocks.com. Their 5 round block actually allowed 6, so the Man could still nail you if you're in a 5 round max area. Plus the ones I got didn't fit very good and I had to dremel the edges to get them to slid down in the box. You could probably make one out of abs plastic. I haven't done it yet but I like the idea of using the 10s just to cut down on profile. I usually only keep 10 in at a time anyway...sometimes they show up in herds! Btw I have the exact setup as BrettB as far as I can tell from the picture and it is a hogs worst scenario.
