View Full Version : what's the largest tube mag capacity in .22lr?

11-07-2007, 1:25 PM
semi-auto + tube feeding with the help of this speedloader
plus over 10 rds limit, that's a lot of happy shooting :iggy: :D

marlin 60 seems to have 14 rds tube cap in 22lr. :rolleyes:

fits a hell of alot more if you shoot .22short!

hmm... marlin 60 eats "22 Long Rifle only"


22lr seems easier to get than 22s though ...

IIRC, the Marlin M39A holds 19 .22lr and ~25 .22 short.

I got two of those Spee-d-loaders from CTD and they work great. I use them for my Marlin 39A. Those carry 15 lr cartridges per tube. My marlin can take 19 .22lr so I never really load the extra 4 rounds.

If someone can make bullpup style with tubular mag, it can hold 20-30 easy.

i got one of those i use if for all kinds of different tube fed 22s the trick is i put a line on them for the different guns cause my savage can hold 14 but my remington 12 only holds 10

they are both pumpers so i just fill to the appropriate line with shorts longs or the cheap lr

its not really a time saver its a time shifter cause you have to take the time to load it beforehand

Henry Golden Boy holds 21 rounds in think.

The excellent Golden Boy holds 16 .22 LR or 21 .22 short.

I haven't tried mine with shorts yet - I'll have to dig up a box and see how it likes them.

"That damned Yankee rifle that they load on Sunday and shoot all week!"

i have a henry 22 carbine. it hurts my fingers when cycling the level action rapidly for a lot of rounds. i love it. just want a semi-auto w/ a tube feed and a lot of 22lr ammo, lol :61:

My Ranger copy of the marlin 39A does hold 18 or 19 .22LR and exactly 25 .22 short.

IIRC my friend had a glenfield model 60 that held a few more than mine did, but because it was semi auto only it wouldn't work with the .22 short.

Mossberg 151B holds 16 rounds of .22LR. (Doesn't like 22s)

Semi-auto goodness.... ;-)

My 60 feeds shorts w/no problem
