Does that mean the 96/22 Lever actions have a 96 round magazine?

Actually, I think it designates the type of action: 10 for semi, 96 for lever and 77 for bolt.

Why those numbers? Hell if I know!

Negative. Rabbit9 had it right. The "10" is for the gun's FACTORY 10 round magazine. The 77 was so named because Ruger intended it to compete against the Winchester Model 70 and Remington Model 700. The 96/XX series of rifles are supposed to have a resemblance to the Model 99 Savage, hence the similar name.

Mr. Ruger knew that some Year October 22 that the SHTF happends and this is the ONLY gun that keeps working Far after the AKs and the ARs stop working or run out of ammo.

So you see, its a preminition... And if you believe this, I have 100acres of aluminum foil to sell you.

Its because it only costs Ruger $10 to make. It is their $10 .22 and hence 10/22.

The 25 rnd. butler creek clips say, "25/22" on the side of them.

Clearly this means the 10 stands for the Capacity.

Hey I wonder if there will be a day where we really just can't buy "new" Hi-cap mags, then the prices on used ones would go way up.

Actually, the 96/22 model (lever-action) came out in 1996.

I'm very well aware of when the 96/XX series of rifles was introduced. Bill Ruger has long been a fan of the Model 99 Savage and has quite a collection of them. He even converted one in .250-3000 to a gas-operated automatic once. The rifle is named so as to have a resemblance to the 99.
