so does that mean my Ruger 10/22 is illegal in NY now? How about a tube magazine Marlin or some such?

removable mags only and only applies to semi auto's ,and I believe you can only have 2 mags in your possession at a time . you can still have the 10 rounders but can only be loaded with 7.
You have 1 year to sell / dispose of out of state any mags greater than 10 round capacity .

At a risk of sending this to CSM....that is fucking stupid.

I hope someone challenges this.

I wonder about adding a "plug" to a magazine. I have 2, 14 rounders for my S&W 59 and I'm 98% sure CT will do something similar. Used to put a wooden dowel in my dad's pump shotgun so we could legally hunt ducks. 3 shots IIRC.

Can an unremoveable "plug" be installed to meet the restrictions?

Ex post facto laws are expressly forbidden by the United States Constitution in Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3. Keep your mags and contact a good Constitutional lawyer.

You can take one of the clear plastic non-Ruger magazines (single stack vertical) and cut off the end to make a 7 round out of 10 round mag. I did this with the one I have to make it more vertically compact, not because of state restriction. Here is the mag I am talking about, which is very easy to modify:

Well, I've plowed thru every singe page of this thread. Wow.

So, I've got this nice bolt-action Marlin .22 LR with a peep sight and I like it just fine, but I've got an urge for a scoped range rifle.

I know it's not original, but looking a the current models of the 10-22, they have a bull barrel target model that costs a fair slice more than the standard tapered barrel jobs - I heard that the target is a free floating barrel, which presumably will be more accurate.

Knowing the gazillion possible parts, etc., is it worth buying this one stock as a regular shooter? I really am not yet into the building phase - would like something tolerably accurate out of the box, then have options to work it more.

Not interested in a tacticool .22...

I've already got two nice .22 pistols as well.

And yes, I could put a scope on the Marlin.

I don't have one of the 10/22 target models, but if you can find one I would snap it up. I am a big fan of the 10/22.

I put a target scope on my TALO French walnut 10/22 and it is accurate enough. These guns are a lot of fun.

There's not many rifles out there with the aftermarket support of the 10/22, and in my experience you'll find it pretty accurate right out of the box. I've put a scope on mine and have it zeroed for 25 yards, which also means it is zeroed for 100 yards. It shoots straighter than I do...

The only thing I can say against the new versions is that the trigger guard is polymer instead of metal.

I saw your photos way upthread, and I have to say that it is one of the bitchin'ist rifles I've ever seen - looks a lot like my vintage browning's stock. Wonderful looking.

I have gotten much the impression out of the hundreds of posts regarding the rifle - I think I'll call my shop and have 'em order one for me.

As to the polymer: Well, my experience with engineering plastics as been pretty good - and it's not like that's a high-stress location! Now a plastic bolt....

Thanks.

About as accurate as you can get out of the box with no add ons.

Do to rising ammo cost and availabilty I purchased a remington 597 semi auto, with a 25 rd magazine. Like the gun but after putting a 1000 rds through it , I could not believe how off the sight were. Had friend shoot it and same thing, windage was all the way to left and elevation at 25 yards was all the way down. Finally took it back to dealer. He shot it with same results. Both of us agree the barrel was put into drilling jig wrong or something. On its way back to remington hope they makes this right. 30 years off owning guns and never seen anything like this

I have had one of those and now have the new Savage tactical model. I also have 2 Ruger 10/22s and the Rugers are the most accurate of all my .22s if I use SK Standard Plus Ammo. All you need to do to have an accurate, fun .22 is to get a 10/22 of any ilk and put a $120 Green Mt. heavy barrel on it. You might have to rout out the stock if it is one of the basic ones. But no fancy bedding or other mods are required. Just make sure the barrel mount bolts are tight and the action screw is tight. Get a $79 Tru-Glo 36X scope and cheap mounts and you can easily make .25" 10 shot groups at 50 yards with it. My wife outshot the local .22 benchrest group with hers and they were using Anschutz, Mod 52, Mod 40s and other premier rifles.

Based on what occurred with the Marlin takeover, my impression is that quality at Remington has slipped badly.
