Lithgow made a sporter in 22 Hornet I believe, based on the SMLE receiver, and it was a magazine repeater. However, the ejector was an ingeniuos spring loaded device mounted into the left receiver wall. So unless you have a receiver with such modifications, it is not merely a case of fitting a magazine.

May I be so bold as to suggest that you have a rifle that is a single loader, not a repeater.

I have a Sht.22 Mk.IV rechambered in 222 Rem. It is for target and varmint shooting. Each shot is slow and deliberate. So for me it will only ever be a single loader which saves me the headache of trying to get it to feed from a mag, extract and eject.

Right now my single loader extracts and drops the empty down the mag well to the ground, no ejector, no problem
. Reliable, it works every time. I can even install an empty mag body and catch the empties.

Would you be so kind as to post some pics of the open breech and the bolt head face of your rifle, please? If this be a mag fed 22 Hornet, I'd like to see whats going on to make it work. I might be able to steal some ideas...

Look to your front, mark your target when it comes!
