    I still have one. It wasn't ever a jammer, feeds reliably, but it would maypop anything, but CCI. Now, the hammer spring has gotten weaker and it maypops CCI. :rolleyes: But, it has 15 round straight magazines, another example of the FACT that you do not need a curved magazine in .22LR to hold multiple rounds.

    :rolleyes: One minute high cap mags are all the rage because you can wast ammo at a fantastic rate and the next minute, they're too slow to reload? Sheesh, I'm glad I don't have to buy YOU all a Christmas present. :D

    I shoot with competitors that have 16rd .22lr mags in their guns. One is a Volksquartzen (SP?)
    High dollar comp.-ready pistols. They run fast, smoothly and very accurately.

    See, it is possible. The grip of my 422 is thicker than the grip of my 9mm double stack pistol. I'm sure nobody will say no to a 20 round magazine that makes no difference to the size of the pistol. For those that don't want to spend time to load 20 rounds, you may just load it up with 10 at a time, I will make use of the full 20:D

    I don't feel they are as high of capacity as your thinking but my M&P22 mags hold 12 rds. and I have 5 of them. FWIW I also have 5 mags for my Ruger MKIII, which if you load up all five Ruger mags it will take an entire small box of 50 rds. and the M&P will need 60 rds. So I would need an extra Ruger mag or 6 total to equal the capacity of the 5 M&P mags. With the .22 LR ammo in such short supply I don't know if I would want to burn it up any quicker than I am now, with magazines that hold a lot more. LM

    Well....empty it in one minute.......maybe you do that once. Made a lot of noise, popped a lot of brass, possibly even hit the backstop. Then it's old. After that, if you want a lot of rapid fire noise, buy a mat of firecrackers.
