Thats my angle as well. As long as the first few can be put right where you want them, fast, there shouldnt be much more of an issue. The great thing about a 22 is, in close range you could put way more than 3 where you want them. I doubt something like the calico could do that reliably, as Ive heard some crappy reports on it. And a shoulder stock seems pretty essential to pinpoint accuracy. , thats why the 10/22 is still my pick. Because Ill bet 3-10 shots could be placed in a 4in circle at 15 feet very very fast.

New, $130 from the MFR, per mag.
Used varies...
I like finding dead mags that "aren't working" for sale, you just slap a spring kit in and they're good to go again

Some folks have had the plastic mag body copied using see-thru plastic, so you can easily see the round count.
I wish the MFR would do that...makes WAY more sense than those tiny little windows!

Overkill is having two Calico Liberty III pistols with 2-50rd mags and 4-100rd mags...
with a Liberty Carbine with 5 more 100rd mags...I'm ready for the Zombie Apocalypse now

Have you considered a 10/22 in .22 mag? It has almost all of the benefits of .22LR but packs more punch. I'm guessing that hollow points in a .22 mag would be pretty potent for HD?

Just a thought.

I just did a quick look around on the 10/22, 22mag. From what I saw, they are very very expensive. I saw one on gunbroker for like 1200 dollars, and that was a no frills model. There was a stray one around 220, but the few I saw were terribly expensive. I could be wrong though.

If you know where to find them for a little more than the 22lr, Im all ears.

I just read that the ruger 10/22 , 22mag has been discontinued. Thats sad, because I probably never buy one now, being that has driven the price thru the roof.

The only reason for me wanting the 10/22 is that is a deal at around 200bucks. The mags are cheap and plentiful as are the accessories. Too bad, I got my hopes up on the 22mag.

what I heard (grain of salt), was that they sold alot of them, but since rugers prices are low and they didnt sell 'millions', their profit margin for producing the rifle wasnt high enough. I know some demand was there, but it was not as huge as for the 22rl 10/22.
This is how it makes sense to me...Ruger sells quality, and their seimi autos are cheap for how they are. The semi auto pistols, rifles and rimfires are just as dependable as others at twice their price point. I so believe this... my p95 and sr9c are just as good as any glock or S&W model in their respective individual categories. They have to pay just as much to produce their weapons as anyone else, so they need to sell a ton to make selling them worth it.
Dependability could have contributed alot, I just havent heard many reviews on them.

I think that makes sense.

Ok, those are pretty good reasons for not going with the .22 mag. That would explain why I haven't heard much about the 10/22's in .22mag. That's a shame. That would be a tough little gun in .22 mag.

My uncle has my old one. He loves it but all he uses it for though is shooting crows and ex neighbors feral zoo of cats, dogs, and goats. It shoots good but it doesnt have the accuracy of my 882 ss marlin or my winchester wildcat. Both are mag fed bolt guns. The wildcat is a tack driver but is way to pretty for me to carry around in the truck with me on the farm i work on.

I was just wondering, though it doesnt seem likely. Is there any other 22rifle that has the long list of accessories that the 10/22 does? Because that, for now is a big reason I want this rifle. I just dont see many others like that.
