Never having owned a 10/22, I was looking into getting one for a nephew for his birthday. What exactly does the 10 stand for? I am assuming the 22 refers to the caliber.

Not sure, but it ships with a 10rd mag. Might have something to do with it?

10 - as in, Bill Ruger doesn't think anybody needs more than 10 rounds at a time. That's my theory.

Get him a 10/22 with a couple extra 25's.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 11:05:30 AM EDT
Yeah, it's pretty easy to turn a 10/22 into a 30/22.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 11:10:56 AM EDT
It's the model number, just like their bolt action is the 77/22, etc.

Thanks to all for your replies. I kinda thought that might be it, but didn't have the testicular fortitude to ask the Gun Shop Navy Seal Ninja McDeathkiller Uber Delta Force WWII, Korea, Vietnam Green Beret Veteran.

I'd like to think he was on his death bed muttering "I was wrong", but then I'm like that.

It's just the model number, has nothing to do with the round count.

The Ruger bolt action 22 is a 77/22.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 12:17:26 PM EDT
Ok where did the design of the 10/22 come from?? It was based on another rifle what was it? And why was it made?

I think Ruger made the 10/22 to look like and to similar dimensions to the M1 carbine and to match the 44 mag deer stalker version.

I also think the 10 in 10/22, while just being a model number, does represent the 10 in the 10 shot rotary magazine.

Right before Bill died he leaned over to me and said "Tell everyone I'm sorry...I was wrong."

OK now, everybody can get back to buying Rugers again.

It was created after the 44mag carbine (later know as the deerstalker) was produced. It was made to aid in training and a cheaper alternitive to shoot than the 44mag. I have in the arfcom tradation. "Got both"

Its fun at the range to take the 44 out and shoot it. Everyone is expecting a pop pop. LOL
