  Hello all! I am curious... Has any company, such as VQ, or Force productions, thought of making an aftermarket reciever for the 10-22 magnum? Then we could build up our own rifles from scratch instead of buying complete rugers, or complete VQs. Sure you can modify the Rugers, but there is little one can do to improve the Volquartsen rifles.

  Just an idea for all you enerprising corperations out there!

Sincerely,
GAU-2

Chief says  (STI Iinternationl) FORCE receivers , is
sending me one to test ( LR ONLY).   I dont
know of any aftermarket source. I f you found one
chances are you would still be better off  buying
the complete gun.
MOST LIKELY WOULD HAVE A HIGH PRICETAG.

You said : I thought the magnum used a steel receiver.
your correct . Ruger does use a steel receiver, but an alluminum 10/22 lr receiver will work just as well.

:eek: ;D :D ;D    OK!  OK!  OK!   I JUST GOTTA KNOW!  Can it be true?  If the LR reciever will work to build a magnum, then it will work for the .17HMR as well.  WOW!  Three rifles for the price of one!  

Please tell us mere mortals how to accomplish this , Chief.  Young Weedhopper wants to learn.  I cannot snatch the spent shells out of the air yet, but I will practice.  

Seriously though!  What parts are needed for this wonderful transformation and which parts are interchangable?  Obviously the appropriate barrels are needed but what else?  Will the magnum magazines fit the reciever?
How long will the aluminum reciever last with the abuse of the more powerful magnum shells?  I already have a bolt buffer but will that be enough?

Those TanneryShop 80% finished SS 10/22 receivers are looking better and better. Though I still have concerns about the fairly extensive over-rotation that the hammer has to do in the LR as a MAG configuration.

Chief says :
  Hammer rotation?   the 10/22 LR uses a bolt having
a length of  3.4280 inches. The 10/22 Magnum uses
a bolt with a length of 3.7380 inches.
Difference of 0.3100 inches .
The hammer strike, on a standard 10/22 rifle is
approx 60 % of the throw rate.  better discription =
off the hammer axis   top dead center = 90 degrees
cocked (ready) 30 degrees . fullforward rotation =
 140 degrees .  Calc . strike throw rate compared
to the std 10/22 is @ 60%  modified to mag = 70%

FIGURES  examined the above . calculated the numbers.
STANDARD 10/22 LR  w/std hammer would still fire and function , even if you took a complete (1) one inch off
the bolt. due to Ruger not engineering a foreward
hammer stop in the trigger/bolt assembly.
The rear of the bolt (firing pin) is the stop .
