Need info on a Armscor M22
 
I recently bought a Armscor M22 carbine 22 Cal. semi-auto. For the life of me I can't find any kind of info on or about it. All I reaslly know about it is it was made in the Phippines, it can handle a 10 rd clip, 15 rd clip or a 30 rd clip, mine has the 15and really like that. It is a really good shooter and very accuarate. I have contacted the factory itself and they have no info. I looked on their website and they have a H20C that looks identicale to mine but right in the barell of mine is M22 Carbine. Anyway if someone out there could enlighten me with spme knowledge I would greatly appreciate it. I will be posting a few pics as soon as I take them within the next few days.

I have the Armscor 20C model - same basic action as yours, in a stock inspired by the Ruger 10-22. Decent finish, nice wood, excellent performance! It easily outshoots my fairly recent Ruger 10-22.
Numrich has magazines - the OEM 10-rounder is twice the price of the after-market 15 rounder. I haven't found thirty-round mags.
Mine is currently wearing a Simmons 3-9X32 Deerfield scope.
She is very reliable - keeps on going and going........
Excellent value for the money - I paid $175 at the local gunshow a couple years back.

Here she is, on the bottom:

Bigdog, that is a sweet looking 20C. For such a good rifle there is not much advertisment for them. I had never heard of Armscor until I ran across this one. Are you sure that is just a ten rd clip. Looks like it is as long as my 15 rd. Yeah I have seen the aftermarket mags and they are expensive. My 15 is original. I picked mine up around a month ago at a local pawn shop for $95.00 OTD. I have shot 200 rds through it and it hasn't failed one time. I don't understand the M22 and the H20C, they both look identical. On my barell it says, (IMPORTED BY RUKO-ARMSCOR CARBINE PRECISION M22) and then right after that there is whats kinda looks like a dollar sign stamped into the barell also.

I don't know if Armscor still imports these rifles/carbines into the US - mine is the only one I have seen down here in north Florida. I like unusual twentytwos, and had always heard and read good things of Armscor guns.
They may have been sold under different model names as the years went by.
Yep, that's the ten-rounder in the rifle. The 15-rounder is about an inch and a half longer. Both work fine, and are more robustly made than many .22 magazines. I need to order a few more too.
