The Ruger 10/22 in .22 LR is perhaps Ruger’s most famous firearm. Introduced in the 1960s, the 10/22 was originally designed to be an ‘adult’s .22’ with the same level of quality as people were expecting from their more expensive centerfire hunting rifles. The 10/22 is today one of the most customizable firearms on the planet, with roughly the same number of aftermarket parts as the Glock, 1911, and the AR-15.
Magazine capacity ranges from the ten round rotary magazines up to the big 100 round drums. The 25 round Butler Creek and Ruger BX-25 magazines are arguably the most popular magazines to buy for the rifle. All in all, the 10/22 is simply one of the best and most popular .22 rifles on the planet today, and likely will be for many more decades to come.
