Full Auto 1022
 
A guy at the range today was shooting a full auto 1022. It would empty a 10 round mag in less than a second. I asked what alterations were done to make it full auto, and he said the bolt and trigger were different from a stock 1022. I had no idea such an animal existed. When it fired, it sounded like someone ripping canvas. What do you guys know about this 1022? Thanks

Look up a Norrell trigger pack for the 10/22. It's a full auto trigger group that also uses a special counter weighted bolt that prevents "bolt bounce"....

I ran into one at the range last year. The guy shooting it said it was a commercial model (aftermarket, not Ruger) intended for a Georgia (?) LE agency's female officers. It sounded like the idea didn't pan out and he got his from a Class III dealer for a really good price.

No idea what the internal mods were, but that gun ran really well considering the overall reliability of rimfire ammo.

As if it wasn't hard enough already to keep a 22lr rifle fed.....

Sounds like it would be a blast to shoot. :Blasting_

I ran across a video of one in action recently. I had to skip to the action sequences. :D

A friend of mine (07, SOT) has a couple FA 10/22's. His are all converted to open bolt.

Having shot some FA this past weekend (1919 in 308, 9mm Uzi, M16 in both 9mm and 556) and having shot some in the past (American 180, M16, FNC, FAL, G3/HK91, M14, MAC10 in 45), I can say that it is a LOT of fun. At artificially inflated prices and the cost of ammo, I'm content to shoot other folks' stuff once in a blue moon.

The American 180 is a blast - 177 rounds of 22lr, sounds like an angry little buzz saw when you do a mag dump... and it takes a *long* time to go thru 177 rounds on FA...

Yours truly with a Norrell 10/22 suppressed. Considered one of the best out there.

I was at a machine gun shoot that was open to the public, United States Shooting Academy, Tulsa OK.

Muzzle of a GE mini gun just to my right.

The current configuration of mine. I posted pics of the internals here.

Vito always wants too much. They don't pop up often but I think 13-15 is what they trade for. Let me check MGPG.

Sounds sketchy, but yes Ruger never made any. Story doesn't sound right as if he bought it from a SOT and he isn't an SOT then it was pre 86' and not real cheap. LE Agencies don't buy pre 86' guns either.

Do all/most full autos use a counter weighted bolt like this?

Seems like there'd be a good market for bolts like this among "race gun" enthusiasts. Never have seen any offered though. Just assorted types of "bolt buffers".

Back in the 80's amt lightnings were a clone of 1022 rugers and alot were converted to full auto for use in kentucky and a few other places for prison use. May have been one of them. John norell made 90% of the fa 1022 out there and i belive powder springs as well as a few others made some but most were the amt versions. A few form 1 ones are out there but they are registered recivers not trigger packs.
