I need a few magazines, the stock ones look ugly. Looking for something that extends out and doesnt roll into a ball.

Reliable ones preferably :)

Thanks!

sorry friend were here in CALI so those great Tactical Innovation magazines with the adjustable feeding option are too many rounds for the lefty idiots so were stuck with the ten rounders. Tac. Innovations is a 25 rounder :(

good luck, stay away from those promag 50 rounders, they jam up like crazy. I used it @ LAX range, they had it before the idiots banned them in cali

dang they dont make anything like the 10/30 mags ? Something that looks like a 30 round mag but only holds 10?

I am sad :(

10 round versions of the above "banana" mag are available on CA, I think Big 5 had them.

There is not much in a straight design out there, as the .22 rounds form an arc when they are stacked on top of each other....hence the curved shape of the bananas.

The MWG 50 round teardrop mag is the closest there is to a stick shape from the side view.

The dummy "stick" extensions I sell are very popular, but I am not sure that is what you want.

I have an idea on how to make a straight 10/22 magazine in 10/20/30 round sizes, but for now, CA law ties my hands.
How does that song go?

haha thanks man appreciate the advice/tips. So I guess I can check with big 5(im surprised they would have anything like this). Going to check with them.

What stick were you talking about?

Thanks again.

ive got the 10 rounders from Big 5, they suck - its the Butler Creek RED lips. they had feeding problems with my 10/22 but that was with the CRAP Remington Golden bulk pack stuff.

RE: rebuild kits, plenty of spots out their.... (IE. 44mag.com)

come to the Night Shoot this weekend, I have the TRI-Mag and their not that ugly & they actually work since its the factory 10 rounders held together. It will be an awsome event. All are welcome -> last time in Feb. we had families with moms and little ones, several young 20 year olds trying out their new Big 5 Mosin Nagant 91/30's too

here is a link: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=415319


Ojisan is correct, I too join in his song singing!!

By the way if you do want to turn your 10/22 into a BAD ***** Tommy Gun .22lr, he is an experienced fabricator/smith. Ive shot some of his creations and I tell you Im in need of more 10/22's - I need 3 more at least. First one for the Tommy Gun project and the second for a complete competion style with all the power custom/volquerston/tactical innovation (bull barrel). The third to be a Appleseed Rifleman set-up with the upgraded peep sights............damn I need to make WAY more $

the shape of the 22lr with its rim causes the design of magazines it certain patterns

either they go banana shaped ,angle back like the angle of a pistol and or get wide and let the rims kind of do a partial alternating stack

if you look at the well of the ruger you will see that the banana option is the best

i have a couple mwg drums and i think ive only made it through a drum without a jam once and that was i believe with cci minimags

the eagle mags are neat that they come with their own extended magazine release of course if you already have an upgraded catch it becomes an obvious redundancy

I sell the dummy stick extensions that are really very popular.
These have taken on a life of their own, independent of my Kit sales.
It's obvious they are being used for lots of other kinds of 10/22 builds.

The Ruger mags are the most reliable you will find. But if you really want the AK look the Eagle mags are pretty good too.

woot for those that own unreliable aftermarket "hi-cap" mags.

I would be more concerned with quality and function than whether it's "ugly" or not. And I don't really understand how a factory 10/22 mag can be too "ugly" for your tastes, considering you can't even see it when it's in the gun.

CessnaDriver
05-09-2011, 4:30 PM
I have a few pre-ban mags, mostly 25 rd I need rebuild kits for but that seems easy to find.
One is a Ramline 50 rd though, but it's gotten very unreliable over the years.
Any repair kits for a 50 rd? What are the options for something like that if there
isn't any?

YZINGERR
05-09-2011, 6:40 PM
I have had the same 2 butler creek 25 rounders for over 12 years and they function flawlessly.. plus the ruger 10 rd rotary mags are flawless too, I have 3 of them (2 are attached together by this plastic piece that fits into the bottom of the mags) .

Um...you can replace worn parts on large capacity magazines. You CANNOT trade one unreliable version for a different manufacturer's offering unless the parts interchange.

i have 2 ramline 30s and one ramline 50

and they only seem to work with winchester ammo dynapoint,superx

not federal or remington

ps thanks for the vid its neat seeing one of those work i have 2 black ones and one clear i think ive made it through 50 more than once without a jam but its rare

but i go a bit cheap on the ammo so i could put the blame on duds more than the mag

then what about those who own stuff that aren't made anymore? they are SOL? or heck, what about if the magazine is completely broken/rusted and there is no way to reuse any parts?

Fate

then what about those who own stuff that aren't made anymore? they are SOL? Yep they are out of luck unless they can find a used set to cannibalize for rebuild parts.

or heck, what about if the magazine is completely broken/rusted and there is no way to reuse any parts?Use the broken/rusted part and rebuild all other parts around it, then swap out broken rusted part. The law doesn't specify that you have to have it functional while replacing parts.

The issue is you must replace like parts with like parts or at least using the parts in another mag that has interchangeable parts (i.e. follower for a legally owned 20 round AR-15 mag can be used to rebuild mag into a 30 rounder).

You can't swap out one high cap mag for another brand if the parts don't interchange.

While this is smart, it is not codified in the law, and the only thing beyond the law that we have is an opinion letter from Gene's former girlfriend at the DOJ.

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), we have no case law to go by because the law is pretty much unenforceable.

TRP strongly recommend that there be a direct path to the rebuild, and certainly rule out rebuilding a pre-ban USGI 30 rounder into a Beta-C drum because there are no common parts, but the fact remains that people are using Pmags every day and we are not seeing arrests or convictions.

... but the fact remains that people are using Pmags every day and we are not seeing arrests or convictions.

The magazine spring is interchangeable with a GI mag spring, yes? There's your path.

I agree the whole charade is likely unenforceable, but nobody wants to be that guy when a DA prosecutes him for a new TacSol 10/22 mag and his defense is, "but I had some old Hot Lips mags..." Just because it's not happened yet, doesn't mean it never will. Better to play it safe and have a direct path.

I love the concept of the tri-mag, and I'm usually not one to prioritize form over function, but I can't help but notice the tri-mag makes the rifle as a whole look pretty phallic.

I haven't had the best of luck with aftermarket 30 rnd mags, plus they extend too far down. So I glued two Ruger factory 10 rnd mags together. Cheap, solid, reliable, compact - I like it. Although that tri-mag setup looks pretty solid.

any capacity is legal to use, its the import sale and manufacture(this includes assembling a kit) that's illegal. But yes if you stick something in there mid way it will prevent you from being able to load more than 10 rounds, therefore making it a 10 round mag

Limit it to 10 rounds prior to assembly.

Example, I purchased some 30rd rebuild kits from a local gun shop.
I left the floorplates in the box, inserted the followers, then inserted 10 rounds. I measured from the bottom of the body to the bottom of the followers, then transferred that measurement to the outside of the body.
I then drilled the bodies, reinserted the followers, and put pop-rivets into the holes.

THEN the floorplates went on, making them functional magazines.
One of them ended up being a 9 rounder, and three are tight, I can get 10 rounds in, but I can't lock them into the rifle with the bolt forward.
The other two are "perfect"... 10 rounds fit, I can slap them in with the bolt forward, but no matter how hard I try, I can't get an 11th round into them.
