Tell anyone this, and I'll break your knees.

I finally broke down and bought a.... 10/22. I have a bunch of 22lr to get rid of, and well, it is a fun gun. A bitch to breakdown, but fun nonetheless.

I'm looking for some good hicap mags and reduced trigger pull. What are the best 10/22 mags? I'd prefer all metal, because I've heard of the plastic ones splitting. I'm thinking about cutting the sear and hammer springs down to reduce trigger pull. Any tips on 10/22 triggers?

Also, does that Ram Line mag loader work? A few hundred rounds today and my thumbs hurt.

The cost of a metal 'normal cap' mag are almost as much as the rifle.

Hopefully in 2 years we can eventually buy 'normal cap' mags for a cheaper price.

Of all my 10/22's that I have used,I'm on my third one, I have purchased all brands of lo and hi cap mags. Heres the spill:

"Eagle" mags low and hi cap: avoid them, they do the "split".
"Ram-line" mags have the mag lips crack first then they do the "splits".
And finally-
"Butler Creek" the best damn mags both in 10 round and 25 rounders. I currently have 2 25 rounders "hot lips". I have constatly filled and fired this mags and function without a hiccup. The best model of Butler creek mags are the ones that are called "Steel Lips". The only places that I see them for sale is at the Gun Shows they range from $59 to $120. You might find them on the internet also. Triggers, the only good place for them for sale is at the Brownells site. later.

If you are looking to reduce trigger pull and don't want to spend a lot of money, you should get a replacement hammer from Volquartsen. I have one in mine and it makes the trigger a lot lighter without breaking the bank.
