    I was lucky to find a Ruger 10/22 LVT model . It stand s for Light Varmint target.
    But these only come with one ten rd mag. I wanted an extra one so I was looking at internet dealers but all are out. Are these , too, being hit by high demand ? AT gunbroker almost all are selling the Bx 25 high cap for a premium. I m not crazy for those as i dont need a bananatype magazine. Anyone knows who has the 10 rd rotary mags ?

    Your best bet right now would probably be your local gun stores. Call around, or just drop right in.

    I tried to buy an extra 10/22 last week, and all the local shops were out of them. They're not as scarse as the ammo they hold, but I can't find any in my area (Central Virginia).

    I thought the new NY limit was 7 rounds, making a 10 rd mag illegal.

    They can have 10rd mags if they get them before April, but they're only allowed to load 7 rounds in them. Yes, it's idiotic, but that's what the law says.

    I bought one off Midway, USAs website about a month ago. They only had the clear ones in stock at the time, but that is ok with me.

    I prefer the clear ones, myself. In fact, I dimpled mine at the 5 and 10 rd mark then dabbed a bit of nail polish in the dimple.

    Easy to tell at a glance how many rds I loaded. I suppose it'd be even more important in NY, but I'd put the dimple at 7 rds.........until I moved.

    Got some from midwayusa, but it was years ago, well before the current .22LR craziness that I, for the life of me, cannot figure out. :rolleyes:

    If you just bought a new Ruger rifle, you can register it with Ruger and get a 20% discount on accessories. I'd consider that option, or watch Midway and other suppliers to see when they come back in stock. But I've ordered some stuff from Ruger, as have some friends. A lot of stuff is backordered, but those orders are getting filled in a month to six weeks.
    FWIW, 10/22 magazines have been hard for me to come by too lately. I'm in a pretty remote area, so I was lucky to find a couple still on the shelves at the LGC. I left one hanging for the next guy.

    Yes, get one on line. Then get another one so you can get one of the 'triple' mag holders. It lets you have 3 x 10 round mags that you can change as fast as you can flip it. I have two and it works great. And, it is legal in CA!!! That's amazing in itself.

    TurtlePhish,

    Think that sounds goofy? In today's Denver Post, the scenario of gun laws being debated, they are now allowing , and I quote, " For shotguns, no more than 28 INCHES worth of shells." End quote. DUH, guess the feds and PD's will be carrying steel tapes to measure the amount of ammo being carried in you scatter gun ! One good line I saw the other day, " If the mentally deficient are not allowed to own guns, then why should they be allowed to make gun laws." I'm through.

    Not any more. For some reason Ruger 10 round mags for the 10/22 seem to be just as hard to find as high cap Glock mags these days. :(

    Having moved out of CO as the Kaliformia invasion was in the early stages, I've not read the Denver Post for some time. Does the measurement include the chambered round? What about one "ghost loaded" on the shell carrier? 28"/2.75=10 point something. Change the shells to 2.25", gain two shots. Shorten to 2" shells, you could have 14 in there. If this becomes the law of the land, then maybe it'll be time for 2" shells.

    That's a sig line right there.
