GB M5 F/P SA
The Grayboe M5 Floor Plate was created for 4 reasons:
** You will use your existing BDL magazine box, follower and spring with this M5 floor plate. Just slide your follower spring out of your current BDL and slide it into the hatch of the M5 floor plate. If you have a new custom rifle build and are in need of these BDL internal parts, please contact us.
Is your long action M5 BDL ONLY compatible with a Wyatt Extended Length mag box or will my standard long action box work?
it is compatible with a wyatt mag box.
Is the hinged plate removable when you want to convert to a DBM, or does it just flip forward?
You will remove the entire floor plate and then bolt a M5 DBM bottom metal in its place.
RE: The question about 300PRC. To be clear..... I would need to buy the Wyatt box in addition to the GRAYBOE M5 FLOOR PLATE (https://wyattsoutdoor.com/product/300-prc-kit/), correct?
Yes you will need the wyatt mag box and a follower spring to use in conjunction with the M5 floor plate.
This may be a silly question but I have never run a floor plate on a custom rifle. What is the max COAL for a LA floor plate? Can you run longer cartridges such as 300PRC?
with a wyatt extended mag box you can get out to 3.850". This floor plate is compatible with a .300 PRC.
Sorry, You sent me the WRONG item. I already have a “M5 bottom metal for Magazine”. Now I have 2. I ordered a M5 FLOORPLATE. As you suggested in your description, the floorplate can be switched with the Magazine settup, to allow both target and hunting with the same rifle. (please double check: I believe I placed the order correctly)
Hi Stephen, Terribly sorry about that, going to head out there right now and slap someone in shipping. Then going to send you the M5 floor plate you ordered right now and email you a return label for the wrong item sent. My apologies about this hassle!
