My 16+1 Round SR-22



Log in to see fewer ads
I have the TandemKross Wing-man butplate extention added to my magazine.I have improved it with the Taylor Tactical Supply upgrade that has a stronger spring for the 6 extra rounds in the magazine and it also allows the slide to stay open after the last round is fired.Most 22 auto pistols only can shoot 10 rounds I really like the extra firepower for added fun.

It gives you more of a grip for your pinky finger.

First you have to order this TandemKross +5 magazine bumper.

https://www.tandemkross.com/Wingman-...ACK_p_112.html


And 2nd then you order this kit that improves the TandemKross upgrade.It is made to improve the kit above with a stronger spring and to leave the slide open after the last shot.

https://www.taylor-tactical-supply.c...er-sr22-tk.htm

So you have to order both of them for the final result.
P.S.Didnt you ever look at the SR-22 magazine and think,is that big black piece of plastic really nessasary blocking more rounds that could be loaded in it.

Yes. Never could understand why capacity couldn't be increased in many 22 handguns.

That extension package looks interesting. May have to try it. It's expensive for 6 rounds though. For less than the cost of the upgrade I can get additional 10 round magazines.

.
Because the rim on 22 tends to stack up which necessitates a curved mag for reliable feeding once you get over 10-15 rounds.

And for the price of the extension...I don't see much use for a magazine over 10 rounds for this type of pistol. It's not like you're going to get attacked by a herd of rabid squirrels and 6 extra rounds isn't THAT thrilling. The cost/benefit ratio on it is kinda high. (high cost/low benefit) But hey, why not? To each his own.

I'm with you on the cost benefit of this particular upgrade.

When it comes to higher (factory) capacity, it is very attainable though, even in these smaller pistols, with a rimmed cartridge. Many manufacturers have figured out how to get 15 rounds in a single stack to function as reliably as 10. I don't know what the (maximum) magic number is when the mag has to be curved, but it is more than 15.

I think the real reason is that of your opinion above. A lot of people don't really care to have more than 10 rounds in a .22 handgun. It also helps to just manufacture one mag that works in all states (states that limit mag capacity to 10).

And...I suppose having the mag longer than 10 rounds means they would have to make the grip longer which screws up the proportions/design of most pistols, or it would stick out the bottom.

But then again, I'm not going to Poo-Poo the OPs thread just because I wouldn't buy an extension. If it was only $5-10 I probably would. Oh heck, the next time I have some extra money laying around I probably will.

I went to this setup so I wouldn't have more than 2 magazines for this gun. Just a little more capacity. For me the sr22 is an occasional plinker and sometime carry gun. No need for a pile of magazines.

With that setup can you drop the mag free with after the slide locks back? Or is the slide locking back against the magazine follower, thus not allowing the mag to be dropped free?

Ive always thought these sized mags should be capable of more capacity.

I have been using the TandemKross +5 magazine bumper on x2 mags for the past 8 months with no issues and love having the extended 15 round mags for the range. Makes a great little SR22 even better! Ours have been dependable and fun.
