Are high capacity mags illegal in CA for rimfire guns? I was on SKSMAN.com & saw a really cool PROMAG 50rd drum mag for Ruger 10/22's. I want it!

any hi cap mags are illegal to purchase new. you can purchase them as rebuild kits to your existing pre 2000 ban mags that needs repair.

Damn.. that sucks. I thought rimfire rifles were exempt from those silly rules! Maybe I can get a rebuild kit & a replacement case... lol

If i understand the rules correctly (please someon chime in if i'm wrong).

If you already have a Ruger 10/22 magazine that takes over 10rds (even if it's only 11rds) you can buy the 50rd drum (as a rebuild kit) and "rebuild" your older hicap with the new 50rd drum parts. But you would not be able to re-assemble your older hicap. In other words if you had a total of 5 hicap 10/22 mags pre 2000, you could hypothetically buy 5 50rd drums (as rebuild kits), take apart your existing 5 hicaps and put together the 5 50rd drums to end up with the exact same amount of hicaps as you had pre 2000. the taken apart old hicaps could not then be reassembled by you since at no time could you have more than your original 5 hicaps.

I live in Wisconsin and I haven't had any luck with magazines besides for ruger 10-rounders. There are some metal ones that you can adjust that I'd like to try, but they're somewhere around 50 bucks. ouch!

yeah I agree with this ^, besides bigger mags for a 10/22 just means you can waste ammo at a faster rate right? I was just trying to regurgitate what i've read in previous hicap mag posts.

Who sells 10/22 rebuild kits? I haven't seen any. I got some some old plastic mags that are pretty beat up I wouldn't mind replacing the plastic portion if it was possible.

Get a couple of tri mag holders. They work great; using reliable factory ruger magazines, you have 30 rounds at your finger tips. Keeps things legal here in California. http://www.cabelas.com/catalog/largeImagePopup.jsp?productId=708700

Winnar.

I love those, have a couple of them, and they're great to use for both bench shooting, and fun run-n-gun type stuff in the desert. Match 'em with one of those magazine releases that comes all the way around the trigger guard, and you're golden.

those pro mag drums are huge i have one of the cmf tear drop ones from the 80s it works decent it loads from the back i cant imagine having to feed them all in one by one and i'm betting a speedloader wont work with it

I have a pile of old Ramline 30 rounders that I keep for principle, but don't use because they suck.

10 round factory rotary mags FTW!

Sadly this is true -- out of literally hundreds of 10-22 mags, it is only the factory ten rounders that have given consistent reliable performance. The old Butler creeks 25s and 30's, if you caught them an a roll, were fun...

For those in free states, the Butler Creek 25 rd steel lip magazines work pretty well. $29.99 at Cabelas. The "hot lips" 25 rd mags work well too, $19.99. The newer Ramline mags don't feed well.

My old Butler Creek Hot lips 25ers have worked perfectly for the 12 years I've had them. Don't know if rebuild parts are available for them, but I'll have to look into it.

I have several of the Ramline 50 rounders. I had pretty good luck with them back in the day (as long as the gun was clean), now they dont seem to work as well. I found that how they are loaded is key to getting any kind of reliable feeding out of them. When loaded with an auto loading device, the bullets get jammed up and don't move corectly, but if I hand load them 1 at a time, I have better luck. SOmetimes I can still even empty the whole mag as fast as I can pull the trigger. sometimes...
