Sig comes out with a new .22 with a 10 rd mag. Walter P22 has a 10 rd mag. Ruger MK11 and III with a 10 rd mags. Etc..., Etc... Damn it! I want a .22 pistol with a hi capacity mag.

Didn't you get the memo, law abiding subjects don't need more than 10 rounds.

Seriously though how many rounds do you want in a mag? 10, 15, 20? I have never seen a 22lr double stack pistol mag so it would probably have to be a single stack and in the shape of the Butler Creek mags and to keep that in the grip it could be more trouble than its worth.

I have a 12 rnd. MKII mag. for what it is worth.

Don't the rims make it really hard to make a double column magazine?

Off the top of ym head, the only double column gund that fed a rimmed cartridge was the Lee-Enfield. I don't own one so i can't say how it works. I remember reading somewhere that the magazine on the Dragunov SVD took a year to design to feed the rimmed cartridges reliably.

There IS the Mountain Eagle.. the ad says it holds 15, but I can't see the mag too well in the blurry picture

FWIW

IIRC the Ramline 50rnd 10/22 mags. are double stack but they are also arched too. I think the arch is the problem.

frankly I am quite disappointed the mosquito is only 10rnd.
They make hicap ruger mk2 and mk3 mags, just not factory ones anymore.

WHAT IS A HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINE?


Must not have gotten the memo.

i think you can get an aftermarket 10-22 receiver.
just have it sold to you as a pistol.
that could be cool!

Technically this is a correct usage of the term "High-Cap". The standard capacity of these guns from the factory is 10 rounds, so they are extra capacity after market mags.

Use the term 'extra capacity' then.

Calico makes one

I am talking about a Glock .22, or some other popular maker. The calico stretches the limits of a pistol. More like a rifle without a stock. If they can make a 9mm mag that holds 17 rounds, can't they make a .22lr with a flush fit 20 or 30 rd mag?

It's the rim, man, the rim.

The Ceiner conversion kits come with 15rnd mags for the M1911, Glock, Hi-power, Beretta, and Taurus. If he could figure it out, I think the big gun makers could also.

JAC Conversions

I would think that some one could make a rotary type tear drop or something that would fit into a handgrip the size of a 9mm handgrip. The real reason why though would be because the Firearms industry does not feel there is a market that would pay the extra$ to get it. They are in this for money and if they thought they could sell it enough they would make it. I would buy one if it was reliable at least with good ammo because I love that caliber.

I recall that Grendel made one in 22magnum that held 30 rds. Don't think the quality was up to scratch.
