"New" 10-22 Magnum



Log in to see fewer ads
I bought a 10-22 Magnum today. 1999 model. The owner said it had feeding issues. I got it for $295.00.

I know the double extractor models were a problem but this one is a single extractor model.

I got it home and after removing the barrel band to start a detailed cleaning I noticed two problems. #1...the action was loose in the stock....#2....I checked the V-block bolts and they were both a 2/3 turn too loose. I just snugged them up.

I got it all cleaned-up and hand cycled it seems OK.

I read where a Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor is a quick fix for weak extraction and just wanted to know if anyone had experience along those lines.

Smile Mag 22

Wow first congratulations and welcome to the Ruger mag clud. I have 2 of them love them both one is very modified other is bone stock. Stock gun is my favorite it runs best lubed with light gun lube and heavy (40 grain +) ammo, it will malfunction when dirty but if you clean it regularly it is the most fun gun you will own. Again great find and welcome to the big 10/22 club.

I won't shoot this one till I get the VQ exact edge extractor in and rebuild the trigger housing with a VQ target hammer kit.

The trigger pull is just terrible coming in at 8 pounds....Lawyer trigger at it's very worse.

Great find! One of my two magnums has a VQ extractor but only because I was in the habit of using them when I modified the gun. The other one is running just fine with the factory extractor. Bear in mind the 10/22 extractor's only job is to extract unfired rounds. Ignition pressure and the ejector do the job when you fire the gun. It was said on this forum long ago that a 10/22 will run without an extractor. I tried it with a .22lr model and it ran fine.

The VQ target hammer, IMO, is the best money spent on a 10/22. It's ridiculous that the trigger is heavier than the gun from the factory. The VQ hammer alone gets the trigger pull down to around 2.5 lbs. I have never used the entire hammer kit but assume it's also money well spent.

This has to be a candidate for the buy of the year.

Well I finally got all the parts in for my 10-22 Magnum over the last couple days.

VQ exact edge extractor.

VQ target hammer....Reduced the pull from 8 pounds to 2.5 pounds.

A set of low Ruger rings so I could better use a Leupold M8 4X as I like that scope low to the receiver.

I took it down to my range and sighted it in and I'm getting dime sized five-shot groups at 50 yards with Winchester Super X. No issues....Done and done.

Lucky guy!
I have a Ruger American a Winchester 9422 WMR and a Savage A22 WMR. I would love to get my hands on a 10/22 WMR to go with them.

Super deal on the 10/22 Mag.

I have one I bought at an auction several years ago, it is like new without a Box. I have about 4 times what you paid in mine. I have not shot mine yet, it is still a safe queen!

Volquartzen Exact Extractor

I installed the Volquartzen Extractor some 6 years ago on my 10/22 22Mag....It really helped with extraction issues. It worked so well...I upgraded the '2' 10/22 LR models and my Ruger Mk II. One of the best and most cost effective upgrades you can make to any Ruger!!!!

Just my humble Opinion but backed by real in the Field Results!!

Shoot SaFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great find! Glad you got her fixed up and shooting well.

I'm buds with the local Pawn Shop guy in town and he so happens to be probably the largest gun dealer in the County. He has found both the 10/22 Mags I have and both were in excellent condition. I think I paid $400 for the first one and $600 for the second one, but both fire great with little modification.

Congrats on your find!

And both were good buys! Congrats on them, too.
