Like they said. It's a fixed internal magazine where the bottom floor plate opens out like a small door. So, imagine the floor plate of a detachable magazine except that floor plate has a hinge at the front end where the plate opens out, but the magazine does not detatch, the magazine spring and follower are also attatched to that floor plate.

For some odd reason Remington has found it cheaper for them to put a basic hard plastic butt plate on that gun, and those tend to really make shooting it (in a caliber like .30-06) very uncomfortable. Hope this helps.
