Well I have debated on this part for a while cause of the price and a few bad reviews but went ahead and took out a loan and ordered it.....$20.00 at Mid(wrong)way.com  Its the Tactical Componet Mfg. Mac Xtender for the R700SA.  I will have to say. It looks decent, adds three rounds to the capacity and functions flawlessly.  No trouble feeding any of the rounds or ejecting like I have read in a few places.  Definately worth the money IMO.  While I was at it I also installed the TPS 20MOA steel base.  The Nikon sitting on top is just to see the clearance. its a prostaff 3x9x50, in SS low rings (nothings tightened down except the base).  PLENTY of clearance as you can see.  The 3200 10X is gonna leave a huge gap?!?!?!  Oh well. it'll have to work until I change....again.  I really think it won't last long before a SS3x9 finds its way on. What do yall think about the mag xtender and base?

To me that's a good thing, it matches the rifle and don't look like a add on.

looks good....... if you don't mind the mag hanging below the stock.  I usually don't like that, but I'm mostly coming from a hunting back ground.  I could see it working for a defense/tactical set-up.

Definitely makes it into the "tacticool" realm.  Good thing is that you get three extra rounds though I guess.  A lot of guys step up and get the $325-400 DBM and bottom metal if you are going to be running around and shooting in "tacticool" matches.
 
Definitely you'll want to change the stock out for one that isn't a POS, but they are nice rifles.  I've got one and it averages right on 1/2MOA at 100yds.
 
Good luck, and the 3-9xSS is a good choice for that rifle.  I went with a USO ST-10.

They made it fit like a freaking glove and even made it look like it was one piece.
 
Super Quiet.  Made my gravy load at 2750fps feel and sound like a 22.  Made my subsonic rounds well.  I could hicup louder! Its great.  If I knew how to upload videos to youtube and it not take overnight it seems I would get some up.

its a sps tactical 308.  I bought it to dedicate to subsonic only.  I wish the twist was a little faster but I can get 168's to stabilize out to 200yds fine.  I am testing some 150's currently but the wind is causing chaos on it.
