I see an ad for a barrel in the new .17 Hornady caliber for the 10-22 advertised. How much work is involved in installing this? Does it work? What about magazines? Will the springs handle it?

I have the Mannlicher stocked 10-22, if that makes a difference.

As long as it's a .22 Mag receiver, all you have to do is change the barrel.

Are your sure it isn't for the 10/22 MAG? I am aware of barrels for the 22 mag version of the 10/22 and the 77/22

The .17 uses the same mags as the .22 WRM, so if it is for the 10/22, I am assuming there is some WECSOG involved to make it all work on the standard platform.

I've dropped in the Butler Creek .17 HMR conversion (with stock) into my 10/22M. Simple replacement of the barrel (and stock). .17 HMR will fit in the 10/22M mags. Mine did hangup in the middle of shooting. I had encountered a fellow .17 HMR shooter (his rifle a 77/17) before I got the conversion who also had his mags hang up.

The solution to the problem is to loosen the bolt that hold the mag together a tiny bit. My mag now functions flawlessly with .17 HMR.

I have encountered some stovepipes but attribute the problem to a still relatively new gun (no more than 200 rounds of .22 mag run through it previously).

Had the best results with Hornady and Remington ammo (V-max) - 1-1½" at 100 yds. Not so good with CCI and federal hollow points - 2½-3" at 100 yds. I could propably do better with the Horn and Rem with a better scope than what was on there.

Over at rimfirecentral, there are a few who have done conversions with 10/22 (.22 lr) to .22 mag and .17 HMR but the gun requires some involved modifications. Also, conversions using 77/17 barrels to 10/22 and 10/22M, also not straight drop-ins.

77/17 mags and rings will fit the 10/22M, they are the same part numbers.

EDIT : Please note, 10/22M = .22 mag.

Thanks. Mine is .22lr, not mag, so I guess I'd better read the advertisement more carefully.
