    I don't think you are going to get anything produced or stocked locally. I've bought two of these mags online from RowanEngineering a while ago and are very happy with the both the service and product. I use mine everytime I shoot - keep in mind that they do not work for all types of pellets (pildrivers for example will not fit).

    It doesn't look like they are self-indexing? Do you have to index them by hand Joggie? Is it easy/smooth to do? If one is in a rush while doing it, is it possible to index incorrectly, resulting in the pin not pushing the pellet correctly?

    No man, ActionMan, tell all of us. We might be in the market for that as well.

    Ja please. Is it a worthwhile mod, and how much will it set you back?

    I checked out a video on their website about the mag setup. Very nicely built , but not self indexing. The S400 does not have a mechanism to index a mag. Still looks easy enough to operate. Don't have to fiddle to get a pellet loaded when in an awkward position.

    Sorry Gerrie, I sent ActionMan a PM and should have answered him on this thread instead. This was my reply to him:

    No, it is manually indexed (by hand). It is easy to opperate. There is a spring-loaded ball bearing that helps with the indexing (you feel it "click" if you turn/index the mag.) I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. Yes it is possible to turn it to stop between two slots, that will result in you not being able to push the loading pin forward.

    I would happily recommend the Rowan mag and have had no trouble with mine at all. It won't fit on the S410. I also have the Rowan hamster which Im also very happy with (despite having to drill a hole in the stock to fit it) There is a recessed magnetic tray in the hamster which holds a magazine.

    Yes, I ordered over the internet and paid via credit card. I can not recall the cost (it was more than a year ago). I had excellent service from Rowan.

    thanks Joggie
    sorry for al the questions,but there is no drilling when fitting the bracket/holder for the magezine on the rifle?on the looks of the pics it looks like it clamps on the same sleeve/shoulder as the scope mounts do,i see they also require the hight for each s400 for the bracket/holder/clip, strange that they differ but they do,here is a clip i found from how it operates
