Danny, Do you know if this will fit a 10/22 mag? I'm building a 17HMR rifle out of my 10/22MAG, & I know I will need a trigger. Butch from Pgh.

you dont want to do that- build it out of a 22MAG -those were the guns that were blowing up- that is why they dont make the 22Mag- they dont want people converting them

Just a thought

Gene, the guns were not blowing up.....the bolts were cracking.....isn't strange that a company like Volquartsen can make a semi 22mag or 17 mag and it doesn't break, but the big boy won't take the time to make a simple design change to take a flaw out. Rather.....we just won't make any more.

Mike

btw....the bolts were cracking because Ruger required the owners to send the guns back for a factory extraction fix only to cause the problem of cracking. All that was needed to fix the problem from the factory was a simple extractor change.....Volquartsen did it, and Ruger didn't

Actually there are several different solutions that have been used and Vol used two different ones

The least expensive of the two is to add weight to the bolt

But no some guns in fact did blow out metal parts.

But yes everyone gets the idea- it was important enough the both Ruger and Remington stopped selling the 22 Mag versions

From my discussions with Volquartson, they indicated the bolt reacted too fast, causing cracking when it reached full stroke. Due to PA game regulations, we can't use an auto loader rifle for hnting, therefore, I installed an extra strong spring installed to eliminate the blowback of the bolt, I have to manually work the bolt to extract/reload the chamber. The only reason I'm messing around with this, is because there are so many "hotrod" parts for the 10/22. Butch

I like your attempt to get around the law. I question weather or not you could get by with it. En end run around the law gets you a ticket in Oregon. Jeff

As long as the gun does not auto cycle, it is legit. It is no different than a bolt gun, only a single back & forth movement, sorta like a Blaser rifle. I'm not really getting around the law. I'm just making an auto loader into a "non auto loader" Already checked with DOW. They advised as long as the modification cannot be done in the field, they see no problem. Butch
