Picked up my 10/22 SS Synthetic stock today. Are the magazines for these things reliable? Any issues I should look for? Off tomorrow going to break it in. Its the carbine version.

For my daughter, we went with Buttler Creek 30 round magazines with steel lips. The factory 10 round magazine was reliable, but a pain. We also replaced her synth stock with a Tapco stock so she could shoulder it better.

I've had a few 10/22's over the years. Great little .22 rifles, the factory 10 rd mags are very reliable. If you buy the extended mags make sure you get the ones with the steel feed lips. They last forever.

Ruger makes a 25rd magazine for the 10/22 but from what I've read, the first run mags were reliable. The most recent bunch have had some issues. The 10rd rotary has been used for 50 years or so if that says anything. On the plus side, Walmart carries factory 10rd mags for like $15.

I think the 10/22 has been surpassed in coolness by the new dedicated AR .22's like my M&P, but the 10/22 is still a very neat rifle.

I just wish we could hunt with semi auto in Pa.

There's certainly truth in this statement.
For years, people have been tripping over themselves to buy any accessory that came to the market with the purpose of making the rifle more "tactical".

No need to spend time and money on accessories that only make the rifle "sort of" an AR15 when you can just go buy one of those off the shelf now.


That said, it's almost an American icon, and I'd like to pick one up one day. Wood stock - not tactical.




CONGRATS on the purchase, das! Keep us posted and add some pics!

I think the Ruger 10/22 magnum is really cool. That's gotta be the ultimate squirrel and rabbit gun in states where it is legal.

I'm still shooting the same 10/22, a 1969 model, that was given to me used and in pitiful cosmetic shape at Christmas of 1975. I had to fix it and make it pretty before being allowed to shoot it. Smart guy, my dad, as I learned about the inner workings of the thing.

It's still dead-stock, and it's (of all things) old enough to be devoid of a single piece of plastic anywhere.

The trigger group will be going to Brimstone for a basic trigger-job this winter; I'm not going to opt for any non-stock external parts, as it just is too unusual to see an early-production 10/22 in original form. I expect to ask for, and get, a 2.5-pound trigger.

As others have said, the factory mags are absolutely reliable. The BX25 Ruger magazine occasionally has a problem with a round going a bit nose-down and refusing to feed. That's just a whole lot of fun to deal with. I also have one of those wind-up teardrop-shaped 50 round magazines that looks like it should be unreliable, but works like a champ. Pain in the arse to load, though.

So if I go to the range with everything loaded, I have 120 rounds before I have to reload a magazine. The other side of that coin is that if I go to the range with everything loaded, and empty everything, I now have to load 120 rounds Smile

There are some bulk loaders out there--- I think HotLips makes one. Some also swear by the Hot Lips magazines.

Enjoy your 10/22.

Lots of activity over on rimfirecentral.com around those wonderful little rifles.

My 10/22 is Israeli military surplus in a Butler Creek metal side folding stock. No idea what year it was made.

Oh and the 10rd magazines fit perfectly in revolver speed loader pouches.
