    Got a chance to buy one w/ 3 mags for $450 thinking about going for it, anyone got any experience with them? Would make a fun replacement for the 10/22.

    meh no opinions? i checked around on prices and it seems to be a fair price considering the 2 extra 100rd mags I just want to know its not going to jam every few shots :hs:

    It aint pretty I know, but im looking at the fun factor, throwing alot of lead down range real cheap. I gave away my 10/22 so I'm now 22less

    Well, since noone stopped me I bought it last night, ended up buying a Tec also :eek4: guy gave me a good price on both I couldn't refuse. Haven't shot them yet maybe tomorrow I'll hit the range to tryem out. If the calico turns out to be a turd I can turn a profit on it from what I'm seeing on GunsAmerica.

    Yeah 100 rounders, I think they also made 50's for it but he didn't have any of those with it.

    Sweet. Get 2 more mags and you can shoot through a whole bulk pack of ammo before reloading the mags. :eek5:

    The only 100 round mag I found for sale was sold and went for $150 :eek4: Thats why I bought it I figure I can't lose even if it sucks totally I can sell the 2 mags seperate then sell the gun with one mag and turn a nice profit, and still have the Tec. As long as its halfway reliable I'll keep it, should be fun to shoot.

    I had the pistol and it was great as-is. Would not cycle with a can on it, which was unusual because increased back-pressure usually doesn't cause a gun to not work. Made a drop-in auto sear for it, worked good as long as it wasn't with can. Gun was stolen (without sear) off table at Knob Creek. Tec 22 blows goats. Good luck.
