I have always thought a new magwell for Ruger10/22 mags would be ideal. Would just have to open up the stock as well.

And get a new trigger guard assembly, and probably having to mill the underside of the action and the bolt. As the magazine profile is nowhere near the BB single stack magazine



But yeah, hunting gophers with a BB with a 50rds magazine would be fun

Magwell sure does make it easy getting them in.

Nice job on the trigger guard!
Only thing missing is an extended magazine release lever

Thought about that but being in the front there could be a good chance of dropping the mag changing or bumping into a barracade or obstacle. It's really easy with the cutout to release the mag. It would look cooler but being slightly short it sits out of the way.

For anybody interested in those 3d printed 5rd mags, just message me. I have 6 made at the moment. After a few people confirm they are good I'll start cranking them out and list them as officially for sale somewhere... probably eBay.

And then I'll start working on the 10rd version

Update on sainava's reproduction 5 round mags. . Received mine today it's a work of art the construction is excellent . It locks into the rifle just like the original metal one . It holds 5 rounds and feeds all 5 rounds into the chamber smoothly and correctly ! Loaded it 5 times and fired the rifle with no problems . People this a winner

Just to pick up on izhm's post, I also received a mag from sainava (THANKS sainava!). The construction definitely looks good! While I didn't get any range time in yet to REALLY test the mag properly, I loaded and cycled some rounds through my 7-2, NO damage to the bullet noses at all (other than the usual rifling engraving), so sainava seems to have the feed geometry correct for sure.

I have two VERY MINOR suggestions to improve the mags. The detent notch for the mag catch was VERY shallow, so much so that I was worried about the mag possibly moving in the mag well. I took a triangular file to the detent notch and deepened it some, but ended up breaking through the front wall of the mag slightly. This is NOT a problem unless the mag catch protrudes into the mag interior and interferes with the follower. I suggested to sainava that the front wall thickness of the mag be increased slightly to accommodate a deeper mag catch "cut"? The other suggestion is to somehow smooth the ridges from the top of the mag follower after printing. When the 3-D printer creates the feed ramp area of follower, there is a "layering" (multiple ridges) effect introduced to the top of the follower (wish I knew how to post a pic). I'm certain the rounds are dragging some as they cross this area as they feed into the chamber, so I just smoothed mine up a bit with a file. However, perhaps this is something that simply running a few hundred rounds through the rifle will correct (smooth out the top of the follower). So, maybe the follower is GTG as is.

I said the suggestions were very minor, just glad we seem to now have a good alternative to the basically unobtanium Izhmash mags
