    Very very nice. I take my 10/22 with me everytime I go to the range. I have it setup like a baby sniper. Fun gun. I keep going back to .22s over and over again.... Let us know how it works for you.

    :cool:

    I bought it because everyone seems to think it's a really nice gun.

    I have a question about ammo. The stuff I bought the bullets are loose in the shell. I can spin them around. Is this normal for .22?

    Thats normal for Remingtons cheap bulk-pack shit. The "premium" stuff I've shot isn't loose like that.

    Completely normal.

    As for the gun, if you do alot of shooting, make sure you are able to re-torque the magazine rotater spring. Otherwise you will have some FTF/FTE issues. Again, this is down the road. I'd say 3k rounds down the road....

    Besides that, the 10/22 is fool proof, and ultra fun.

    :cool:

    personally, I didn't shoot mine at all till I tricked it out, since I don't like the factory trigger, sights, or stock, so I figure why lower their value before I sell them :dunno:

    Ok, last stupid question.

    I loaded one of the mags. It was a pain in the ass. Is there anything out there that makes it easy that you recommend? Like the quick loader things for pistols.

    I don't think there are any for the rotary mags, but I'm not sure.

    And yes, loading is a bitch, thats why you get a bunch of them so that you don't have to reload at the range.

    Really? I have never had any issues with loading the regular 10/22 mags. What kind of difficulties are you having? Make sure the bullets are facing the correct way, and don't try to load more than 10 rounds into the default magazine. As for quick laoders, yes, you can buy quick loaders for 10/22s, but that is usually for people who buy large capacity aftermarket magazines.... I am unsure how or if they will work with the standard 10 rounders.

    Like the guy in the other thread with like 10 mags. :bowrofl:

    You carry loaded mags with you to the range?

    Well, I wasn't loading them backwards lol. I took the mag out and made sure it only went in the gun one way. Sounds kinda retarded but they are kinda you know square.

    The problem I was having is the bullets are so small, and the lips on the mag are sharp. Maybe I am a pussy. I was just looking for an easier way to do this without tearing my fingers up.

    nope, I only have 3 mags and I haven't actually figured out what ammo my 10/22 like yes (other than it hates federal).

    Plus, I only have taken it to the range once so far :wtc:

    Well, if you are inserting the bullets the correct way (it would be difficult to put them in backwards) then thats all there is to it. Perhaps your specific magazine came with a rougher than normal finish/metal work on the lips. I haven't ever heard of this problem before.

    What does it do when it messes up? FTF FTE ?

    It's probably a combination of me not really being familiar with it, and the casting is kind of rough. I might deburr them some so it's less sharp.

    just try ammo till you find what it likes :dunno:

    of course, mine is a pretty tricked out rifle, so what it likes probably changed :dunno:

    Your stock 10/22 will just fine. I have no doubts about it. In about 6 months or so (dependng on how often you shoot) you will have to re-torque your rotater mags, but that takes all of 2 minutes.

    Maybe you should have used yours before you changed stuff. :hs: I understand why you did what you did though.
