I was wondering if any company made "straight" styled mags for the 10/22, like Carbine and FAL magazines.

Thanks,
Jack

Yes, Butlere Creek and Ramline did before the ban, I don't know who does now. they are curved, but not rotary.

I think he might mean straight like a tommy gun stick or grease gun mag?

I've never seen one like that. I like the Butler creek/condor type with the slight curve

Can't make a truly straight mag for a rimmed round, so I assume he means one thats not rotary.

Someone made basically a long rotary mag for the 10/22 - kinda like a spring loaded toothed band stretched between two hubs.

It looked pretty slick to me. I wonder why it did not catch on.

I had one of the fifty round rotary magaizines. It jammed contantly and the back plate never stayed on for a full 50 rounds before falling off. Cool concept, poor execution.

Really?
But yeah, I was thinking about a "stick" mag, like a Thompson, Sten, Greasegun, MP-40 ect. I'm not a big fan of "banana" magazines. I actualy hate them from an asthetics point of view.



Speaking of which, any Greasgun style guns on the market? Seeing I'm sure they are now "pistols".

Look at the rims on those cartridges-- they're flush with the case itself. Pick up a .22lr and feel the rim-- it juts out.

That's why the MP5 series can do it but rimfires cannot.

I know, it just never dawned on me untill he mentioned it. Then I went.. "durh".

Not trying to be an ass, but yes there have been straight mags made (not that I have seen for the 10/22) Feather enterprises had a straight 20 round mag for ther AT-22.

Editted to add.......I don't think they work as well as the curved ones though...probably why you don't see many.
