10/22 Magnum on the way really??



Log in to see fewer ads
I just picked up a copy of Guns Magazine, the annual edition with the 2012 buyer's guide. In it they list a 10/22 Magnum as an optional configuration and a list price of $510. Hmmmm. What do you think? Ruger has been introducing new models fairly regularly of late.

Hadn't heard of this one yet but I'm encouraged. I just hope they got all the bugs worked out this time. I bought mine when they originally came out, single extractor, and it was simply horrible. Twenty pound trigger pull (I actually checked to see if the safety was on), failures to eject to name but a couple. Here it is, about a dozen years later, and I still have mine. It's my personal favorite, now that I've made all the mods I needed to make.

If they DO have the bugs worked out then my feeling is it'll sell quite well. I'll keep an eye open for this one. Hope they do it.

I would love to see them re introduce this rifle as well. I just picked one up from 1999 I am currently trying to work the bugs out on.

That's the year I bought mine, Marine, 1999 I'm pretty sure. I had to replace the trigger group with a complete Volquartsen unit, replaced the extractor with an Exact Edge. Added a bolt release and an extended magazine release. I've had GM barrels on it, one Carbon Fiber bull barrel, and found them wanting for my purposes ... a walkabout rifle. I finally hit on using a .22 Magnum barrel off of a Ruger M77 that had been swapped out with a .17 HMR. Chief Dave gave me the barrel. Artifex sold a shim kit that made the swap possible. The dovetail is in a different location on the M77. I changed out the bolt buffer also to one of his (Artifex). The end result is a perfect 100 yard squirrel rifle that an old man like me can actually carry with comfort. 50 yard groups run all the way from .037" to .5". I'm happy with that. Good luck. Have fun.

I have had mine less than a week. It has the VC trigger group. I have had quite a few light primer strikes. I have not shot it since I cleaned it but it was not real dirty in the first place.

I got the craving for one just after Ruger pulled production (90's?), and then I also heard all the horror stories. If they fix said problems with this new? release,, the itch might be back.

They would be accurate rifles from the get go.
In the meantime, I do have 5 bare Magnum Receivers, For Sale, if anyone is interested.
Are these 5 magnum receivers Ruger receivers? or other brand? How much? and if Ruger, how'd you end up with 5 with no bolts?

I'd be surprised and yet impressed if he broke 5 bolts.

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the "Million Gun Challenge" to benefit the NRA. Ruger pledges to donate $1,000,000 to the NRA if one million new Ruger firearms are sold between the 2011 and 2012 NRA Shows.
Seems to me that a 10/22 Magnum offering would help achieve their goal. I bet it and other cool stuff are on the way!

My understanding is that most of them broke on the left side where the bolts were machined for the 2nd extractor. The extractor would come adrift and, having no place to go, would jam in the slot and break it. Standard advice has always been to remove the 2nd (left side) extractor on such guns.

I have a dual extractor bolt and I see what you mean. That is an awfully thin piece of material. If it ever breaks I will JB weld the entire compartment I think.

PS Do the single extractor bolts "break" as easy as the dual extractor bolts?
