Took a little searching to find it but it was a fun search. You have some interesting guns. I think your magnum's new owner will come along before too long.

Value

I would say it is worth more than a unmodified 10/22M. You've got two premium barrels there and the gun should be a great shooter. IMO, the only value in a unmodified version is as a collectible...

Hmmm

So, are you thinking that your kabooms were caused by a sticky extractor preventing the bolt from going fully into battery?

It does take more than a "bit of carbon" to prevent the cartridge from...

Tinkering

Tinkering is what has resolved nearly all the issues associated with the .17 caliber conversions. Most of us are tinkerers but we're not all thinkers. There are solutions to all the issues but no...

HMMM

Glad to hear you got it out. I'm not familiar with the .17 Garin but I have two Savages chambered in .17 Fireball and two .17 caliber 10/22s. The Fireballs seldom see a Boresnake but have...

17s

I was told here a long time ago that each .17 caliber conversion is unique and needs to be "tuned". Bolt weight, recoil and hammer springs, as well as barrel length all impact performance. My...

No magnum but.............

I do have a Charger converted to .17 HM2. Back before everybody panicked over the .17 cal conversions, I got ER Shaw to cut a .17 HM2 .920 barrel down to 12". After a bit of tuning with hammer and...

Yup

Most probably. And, unless the damage was way beyond what normally happened, the magnum bolt could have still been used. The most common damage was breaking off the thin lip below the inner...

Interesting! First time I've heard of a bolt breaking on the outside extractor.

Nice

I had a stainless 917V. Sold it when we got a couple of CZ 452 HMRs. It shot very well. I'm thinking at that price, in this market, if you don't already have a HMR, you should jump on that. Good...

Screw anchors

Used to use #4 x 7/8 screw anchors for .22lr snap caps. I doubt the length makes any difference. Worth a try. If you're using them in a 10/22 magnum, check your owner's manual. You will find that...

Or..........

Or.............it doesn't take much of a machinist to cut a slot in the barrel to fit the inner extractor.

OK

Go ahead and buy that "half decent price" 10/22 magnum and leave it as is. Then buy a new 10/22 lr and start there. They are available about anywhere for $200 more or less.

Agreed. Cheapest I've seen around Indy is $219 at Rural King. Of course, if I "needed" another one $20-$30 wouldn't be the primary consideration. Availability would be!

Nope

The #1 issue, of course, is going to be finding a 10/22 magnum cheap enough that you will want to destroy it on a whim..........if you can find one for sale at all. They have been out of production...

Clark

Lothar Walther is correct, I think. Many years ago, I was struggling with a 10/22M HMR conversion. I bought a very light weight barrel from a highly regarded manufacturer. Had over 50%...

Clark

gmd1950, is that HM2 barrel stamped "Clark". If so, very good choice! I assume the HM2 conversion is just a barrel swap on a 96/22 lr.

When I heard our local WalMarts were going to quit selling guns, I went in and bought the last 10/22 "WalMart Special" model they had. A manager told me they drop any item which doesn't account for...

Amen! I have 2. One is similar to the above but I also have a Clark Custom .17 HMR barrel for it. It runs just fine in either caliber. The other appears box-stock but has some of the standard...

Cletus was one of the guys whose posts were always worth reading. I considered him one of the RFC gurus.
