Difference between regular 10/22 and magnum 10/22?

Hi guys, been trying to find out the difference between the regular 10/22 and magnum 10/22. I want to get a 10/22 and put a tapco t-6 stock on it, but the tapco site says it won't work for the magnum edition. Is the magnum the one with the metal band around the front of the stock? Thanks!

The magnum 10/22 receiver is made of steel, and is longer.

Thanks for the reply! So if I went to the gun store and asked for a new 10/22 I won't be getting a magnum right?

Right. As a matter of fact, Ruger no longer makes the 10/22 Magnum. They do, however, make several different variations of the 10/22. Best bet would be to go to www.ruger.com and check out what they offer and decide which gun fits your needs best. I would assume if you are gonna change the stock out, the plain-Jane hardwood stock model would be what you want.

The band on the front is only orinimental. It is on the carbine model. If your going to change out the stock, I'd go for the cheaper model. Just decide if you want the stainless finish or the blued. Only the barrel is stainless, the rest of it is only stainless finish. Our local walmart went up from $169 to $189 for the Carbine 10/22.

Do you realize that the .22 magnum is in a different calibre? Just wondering.

It is the same diameter, but the cartridge is much longer and has much more punch than the regular .22 long rifle.

The magnum has a wider and longer reciever i believe.
It just didn't sound like anyone mentioned it was a bigger calibre

No, same caliber, different case, different capability.

Thanks! I just wanted to make sure I didn't end up with a 10/22 and a tapco stock that wont fit on it. I noticed tapcos disclaimer said *will not work with 10/22 magnum series*

one REAL quick way to tell if you're about to buy a .22WMR (Winchester Magnum Rround) is that a 10/22 "Carbine" stock model costs $200.... A 10/22 MAGNUM costs about 2 1/2 times that! So if you're paying $500-$600 for a 10/22 you're either getting HOSED or it's a Magnum.

And really, a .22WMR round is about 1" long vs a .22LR @ 3/4", the size difference is pretty staggering and so is the cost of .22WMR! Chances are, unless you are in a REALLY well stocked gun store, you'll almost NEVER see a 10/22 WMR.

Good luck on your new purchase and let us know what you think of the tapco stock. If you don't already own a 10/22, let me just say that it is a truly amazing performing rifle, right out of the box. And the price CANNOT be beat. You'll love it from Day 1.

I also love some of the aftermarket stocks (especially the laminate styles like Boyd's EVO and Predator), but I'm also a hunter so I carry mine into the swamps and woods so I'm sticking with the good old Birchwood factory stock so I don't feel bad about nicks and dings. (plus I have kind of a "value voice" problem... $200 rifle, $160 aftermarket stock???? it just seems a little dramatic;;; but I still think they look GREAT ) But don't listen to me, I just have to internally rationalize why I can spend that kind of money (read: "wife" ) )
