1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I don't think they ever made a 10/22 in a magnum. It would have meant a re-design of the rotary magazine and I don't think that happened.

    They have a single six with a 22 mag cylinder, but I think that is about it.

    They made them but they are a little hard to find and pricey when you do. Try www.rimfirecentral.com

    I believe that Volquartsen made a conversion to .22mag, never seen a factory 10/22 in a magnum configuration, but that in no way means they don't exist.

    Ruger made the 22mag in the 10/22 the 77/22 and the 96/22(lever action)models

    They are out there but harder to find for sale.

    I have one NIB, never opened. I'm planning on making a 17HMR gun. It's nothing fancy, plain walnut stock, blue finish. I've had it about 6 years. If I decide to scrap the project, I'll advise. Butch from PGH

    I've heard there have been problems with semi-auto .17 HMR guns.

    For what the NIB 10-22 .22 mag is worth, I believe I'd sell that and buy a .17 cal gun.

    I had a farmer customer with a .17 semi auto that was built on the 10-22 design. He had plenty of trouble with it and the factory converted it to 22 mag for free.

    Can't remember the name of it, but it did have a Ruger clip in it.

    Yes, there were problems with semi-autos and the 17 HMR.

    The problem is not with the cartridge. It's with manufacturers taking shortcuts to convert guns instead of properly designing them.

    The Remington 597 in 17 HMR is a classic example. To increase the weight of the bolt, Remington used tungsten, which under the constant pounding would grow brittle and fracture. Remington unfairly blamed the cartridge for their own incompetence in making a properly designed gun.

    Ruger was set to go into full production with modified 10-22 Magnum but found the bolt was too light.

    Volquartsen clearly saw the problem and added a counterweight to their 10-22 clone. This is a hidden op rod that runs under the barrel to weights.

    Alexander Arms makes a 17 HMR upper for the AR15 that is reliable. They've put huge amounts of ammo through their prototypes to ensure it works.

    At one time E. Arthur Brown offered conversion kits for the 10-22 Magnum to 17 HMR, but quit. They used a very heavy bolt handle to try to make up for the lack of bolt mass, but it may have been too little. I wonder if they panicked over the 17 HMR semi-auto hysteria that went around.

    Frankly, given the cost of a 10-22 Magnum (they;re in the $700 to $800 range), plus a replacement barrel, and working on getting enough bolt mass, my suggestion is to either get a Volquartsen or the Alexander Arms 17 HR upper. The latter is the less expensive option, though it ain't cheap (see link).

    This is the gun my customer had in .17 HMR that they changed to .22 mag.

    Really was a nice shooting gun, but several times he had a case-blowout when he fired it.

    I've just been given a new, unfired Volquartsen beauty to sell from the same guy that gave me the 682 Skeet set (posted on another thread) to sell for him. He has a plainer version that he uses on prairie dogs, but he wants to sell this beauty that is the nicest .22 mag semi-auto I have ever seen. It took nearly a year to build, and has about every possible option available including match snake-fluted barrel with comp, match trigger set for light pull, upgrade walnut stock with rollover cheekpiece, lots of special engraving, etc, etc. Here are a few pics:
