    Hello:

    I have a Mannlicher-Schonauer - M72 in 243.

    The magazine rotor, which feeds the shells, broke in 3 pieces.

    I have checked with Steyr, Numrich Gun Parts and online searchs with no luck.

    Anyone know of a potential source for a replacement?


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi! I have the same problem, it's broken in 2, caliber 30-06 and I can tell the previous owner has fixed it himself already, so silly of SM to make it in plastic. So, now I'm looking all over internet for the part 24.05.026 but can't find it ANYWHERE! Somebody please help.

    Or maybe find access to a 3D printer. There around, people will make things for a fee and the plastics they use today can be very suitable for a part such as this. Due to the current politics going on around 3d guns just tell them its a part for a vintage vacuum cleaner or something nobody but a steyr owner would know what that is
