The Ruger 10/22 is a semi-automatic rifle chambered in .22 long rifle, the most common .22 caliber rimfire cartridge. It comes with a removable 5 or 10 round rotary magazine. The standard Ruger 10/22 has been in production since 1964.
The rotary magazine is a Ruger exclusive that holds 5 or 10 rounds while remaining flush with the stock. You can purchase 10 round, 25 round, 30 round, 50 round, or drum magazines at several websites.
You can purchase a 10/22 at almost all major outdoor retailers, including Wal-Mart, and most pawn shops. They are relatively cheap guns in the $100-$200 range in their original format. Its low recoil, affordability, and cheap ammunition make it the perfect candidate for a first rifle or just a great rifle to toy around with.
The 10/22 is one of the most popular commercial rifles available with over 5 million sold since 1964. The large after-market item selection makes it possible to change your rifle any way you wish, to fit any style or job it needs to do. The 10/22 is entirely functional and a great rifle right out of the box, but you can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars making it one-of-a-kind if you so wish.
