Anyone know if there are (there has to be) any F/A Ruger 10/22's out there? If there are about how much would one go for?

Thanks

Don't know about pricing offhand but rest assured that they are always rising.
John Norrell, among others, made a 10/22 full auto conversion.
One of the ranges that I belong to a member used to bring in a FA 10/22. It looked like a regular 10/22 but you knew it was something different when he went rock and roll

Don't know about the price, but you can buy a trigger crank and 'simulate' the feel of full-auto before you spend the money on getting a full-blown one. My experiences? Stay away from the BMF Activator. The best one I've used is the GAT Trigger Enhancement crank. It's well made and once installed won't shoot loose.

When I went out to the range with one, a 50 rd magazine, and 1000 rounds of 22 I was done in an hour. You'll find three things out really quick. One is that you need more high-capacity magazines. Second is that you need a speedloader. Third is that you need more high capacity magazines.

I don't think a full-auto 10/22 is really that good of an investment. I'd spend my money on an integrally suppressed one first.

There are not a whole lot of full auto 10/22's in the market. The going rate for a registered transferable is $4200.00 on the low end to $5000.00 or more on the high end. Norrell is the most popular conversion.

That's the best way to go. Buy an M16 and then get a Ceiner conversion kit for the .22. You can also convert to 9mm as well as many other calibers. You should be able to find a registered reciever ar15 for around $5000.00. M16's are going for $6000.00 to $7500 with the A2 version going for a couple thousand more.

Hmmm....I have most vivid memories of a Yugo MGV. Has anybody here
ever emptied 180 rounds of .22 in one long go?

Believe me, that is pure fun

There was a writeup on the MGV 176 in the Aug 2000 issue of SAR. It's an evolution of the older American 180. It looks like real fun especially with the oversize 275 round drum magazine
