Is the 10/22 considered a "featureless" rifle? I plan on rebuilding some old "hi-cap" mags. I would be able to use them on the Ruger right?

You can use "large capacity magazines" in a ruger 10/22 without modifying the rifle or breaking any laws. The "featureless" and "featured" labels only apply to semi auto centerfire rifles. .22lr is rimfire.

From what I understand 10 rounds is max for CA.

This is FUD. It is completely incorrect.

Please read about "large capacity magazines" before you spread more disinformation.

Hey gang,

My question is how do you repair a 10/22 standard capacity mag (25 or 50 rounds) like RamLine... they are welded together. I have 3 that are acting up. I have owned them since the early 80's and would like to replace them but not sure how I can do that legally.

Thanks in advance

You can purchase a rebuild kit, which consists of all the parts of a new magazine, and then disassemble your old magazine (in essence you would be destroying it in the process.) Then proceed to replace every part in that old magazine with the parts from the rebuild kit, including the body, follower, and spring. The voila! You have a repaired magazine.

You are not building a new magazine out of the parts contained in the rebuild kit, but you are replacing every part of the old magazine with new parts.
