    Shortened Ruger 10/22 magazines?

    Hey guys, does anyone know of theres anyone modifying and selling 15 shot ruger 10/22 mags? I cant really use the standard rotary mags and need something a bit longer so I can actually grip the bottom and extract it from my stock. I've tried the butler creek mags and they're total rubbish, jam on every 3rd or 4th round.
    All I want to do is to turn deer, into poop.

    Yes well 15 shot mags. Enough said! If it’s on a 10/22 put an extended mag release on it. Makes it much easier to extract the std mags.

    Trim the bottom of an extended mag and epoxy it onto the bottom of a standard 10 round one?

    The magazine coupler may just work, still might be a little short but it beats those shitty aftermarket magazines. The 15s were ideal, stuck out enough for me to hit the release and remove one handed. It's in one of these High Tower stocks and the mag sits a fair way up inside it.

    @Nugget connaisseur , I have thought about that, but told the guy i brought it off to keep the mags he had for it, and they've since been handed in. Might butcher one of the 10 round butler creek ones and give it a go with that. Be more use cut to pieces than they are now anyway.

    And the factory mags seem to be the most reliable too. so thats an added bonus.

    epoxy a block onto the bottom of the factory mag to mag it longer so you can grab it.

    This could be a simple solution. A similar idea to what I have fitted to the base of my Anschutz 5 shot mags. Creat something similar. These are in alloy.

    It's fairly simple to restrict the bx15 magazine to 10 round capacity, which will comply with the new anti terror laws but still
    enable you to utilize the extra length of the bx15 magazine body to insert and remove. If done right it can't be reversed easily.

    PM me if you want more info

    Glue a piece of string to it.

    When I had a 10/22 I found the factory mags were the best for function. I had problems with the after market ones. However I see a simple solution for you. Glue a small nut to the bottom of your mags. Then use a bolt with a sleeve screwed to the bottom of the mag. The sleeve can be any shape or length that you want. It could even be the same profile of the mag. This will give you the length needed to grab the magazine, and if you want to use it on a "normal" 10/22 you simply remove or attach the handle as needed.

    Cheers for the suggestions fullas. I'd like to keep it looking as factory as I can so I'll cut the top off one of my shitty and epoxy it onto a 10 round ruger mag and see how that goes. It's a bloody shame I didnt even think of modifying the two magazines that could've come with the rifle in the first place.

    A correctly set-up 10/22 should just drop the magazine into your hand when you press the mag release. You should not have to pull it out. New magazines tend to have very sharp edges which can sometimes hang up. Just put a 1mm chamfer on the edges with a sharp chisel. (At this point some people might like me to point out the hazards of a sharp chisel. If you need to be told that then you have no right to own a firearm!)
