Magazines. The Scout originally came with blued-steel magazines, but these seem to have fallen by the wayside, as they were expensive and would rust on you if you neglected them. They’ve been replaced by glass-filled nylon magazines that are much tougher, much less expensive, and which require no maintenance. These mags come in 3-, 5-, and 10-round versions. For hunting, the 3-round is the best, because it’s legal everywhere and fits almost flush with the bottom of the stock, letting you carry the rifle at the receiver like a Model 94. Five is nice, but what for I’m not quite certain, and 10 is the way to go if you’re tactical. The polymer magazines, by the way, come with a cap, which is a very good idea because it protects the most damage-prone part of the box.
