.22 Classic Magazines?



Log in to see fewer ads
Anyone have any leads on where to get extra magazines for my Classic. I have one that I bought through a local gun store way back before they even were shipping them from T/C. Serial number 23XX.

It has sat in my gun locker for years because of the failure to fire, failure to eject, unable to eject a live round except with my pocket knife. I found this web site and read the "cure" thread. Stripped it down, honed a bit off the extractor and it's like a new rifle. Sure wish I had seen it years ago.

It came with one 5 rd. magazine. I see that there has since been a 10 round magazine made as well. I sure would like to get my hands on a couple of them but extra 5's would do till one shows up. Will any other available magazine fit the Classic and function? Anyone have any suggestions on where to find any? I saw one 5 rd. on Ebay for $80 and thought it ridiculous.

Watch Ebay for one at a better price. For stuff like this I set up Ebay so I follow the search and get email notifications. Jump on a good deal if you see it.
Also watch for the R-55 magazines the will fit and function better than the originals according to many RFC posts. The R-55 mag has been much better in my early classic than it's original mag.

I would call smith and Wesson, they threw in a free 10 rd. mag when I sent my gun back, that leads me to believe they may have a few.

What is the difference between the Classic and the R-55? I'm new to the T/C. Mine is a classic that is all I know.

Not real sure but I think I remember reading that when T-C first introduced the 22 Classic, it was supplied with an 8-round magazine(?) (anyway, that's what was advertised). Apparently they had lotsa problems with the first magazine & had to recall? a bunch. They went 'back to the drawing board' & re-designed the mag & ended up with a 5-round magazine. Apparently the first mags had 'flat' sides with no 'grooves' & the 're-designed' mags had a shallow groove vertically on each side. When I bought my 22 Classic used in either late 2001 or early 2002, it came with 2 mags (PO had also removed both front & rear barrel sights), both 5-rounders & each has the grooves in each side. One is still in the factory packaging, has never been used, & the other even after several thousand rounds shows little evidence of use. Am not familiar with the R-55 magazines but I've also read that the R-55 mags work well in the 22 Classic rifles...

I have the early Classic. Not sure what was changed on the R-55. I would have to do a search of this site to find out. They look the same but have a redesigned action.
