Maybe for use when training young children? I'm just guessing here.
My Dad started me out with a single shot at age 5. My first "very own" rifle was a single shot Winchester at age 10.

Seems kind of strange to me. If you wanted to use it as a single shot why not just use a regular 10rd mag (for $13.99 from Midway) and only put one round in it? I got my first single shot .22 at age 10 as well. It was a little remington bolt action.

Cause it's still easy to mix up a loaded 10 round mag with the 1 round mag and have a dangerous situation.

It's a good idea.

I may have to pick up some, my 6yo is an ammo burning terror!
She thinks cranking off a 25 round mag is the best thing at the range.

Well, it may be a "good idea" to some but it's silly to me to pay more for a magazine that holds one round than what you would pay for one that holds ten, just so you don't have to pay attention to what you're doing.

So you take your 10 round mag, paint it red and remember never to put more than one round in it. Problem solved, no confusion.
I bet Bill is rolling over in his grave at what his company has become.

This is pure marketing genius at work. If they can get customers to pay more money for a mag that holds just one round, the next logical step is to hike the price even higher for a mag that holds zero rounds. After that starts selling like hotcakes, they can come out with a piece of solid wood, carved in the shape of a magazine, and ask an even greater price. See where this is going?

With the sales of 20 and 30 round Mini-14 magazines to the public, a factory 25 round magazine for the 10/22 (also available to the public), AR designed rifles with 30 round mags sold to the public, pistols that are easier to carry for CCW rather than the P-series tanks like my P90 is (great for range use but too heavy and bulky for CCW) and other pro-gun moves the company has made since Bill croaked I'm sure has him spinning in his grave like a rotisserie chicken and I'm happy to see it too! For many years, Ruger under the control of that guy was a brand that was "Fud friendly" but not known to be a supporter of all-inclusive gun owners leaving the black rifle and CCW crowd out in the cold to support other companies. With the demise of "Mag-ban Bill", I for one have started coming back to Ruger products so for Ruger, this has been nothing but a good move for them IMHO.

There was a time that Ruger made a lot fewer products, but you could count on high quality and usually a much better price than the competition. Those days are gone forever. If you would rather have a lot more to chose from, at a higher price and not be able to count on it working as it should then more power too you.

Add another vote for useless. If I can't keep track of one round at a time maybe someone else should teach the grandkids to shoot. Now if it was somehow easier to load.......

Besides being a 'youth" thing, it could be for those states where a semi-auto isn't legal for hunting. Can't exactly use the standard 10 and 5 round mags for that purpose. Just 'cause it doesn't make sense to you, doesn't mean it's a bad idea.

From Ruger's site: This standard 10/22 magazine holds one shot and is ideal for training purposes.


I ordered one just to have and place on the shelf.

You mean there are actually states where a semi-auto isn't legal for hunting? Name a few so that I can avoid them would you? As far as "for training purposes" I still think it is just a gimmick to relieve you of your hard earned cash.

would this count as non semi auto??? I really dont think so.. i could manually chamber one and have one in the mag... it would then cycle the second... the british bolt minis dont eject the shells do they?

At six years of age I was given a HR bolt action for christmas. My father, who was an accomplished small-bore competitor, made an aluminum block with a feed ramp to replace the magazine. Besides the safety aspect for training a young shooter, the idea is that you make every shot count as if it's your only one. He also explained that the feed lips of the magazine can damage the projectile affesting its trajectory.

I agree. Since he's died, they have:

1) Made hi-cap factory mags available to the public.

2) Taken the "Ruger billboard" off of the side of the Vaquero barrel and hidden it on the bottom.

3) Introduced "evil" guns like the Scout rifle and the SR-556 and sold them to ordinary citizens.

I have no doubt Bill is spinning at about 5000 rpm.

Getting into this a little late aren't you shizuki? So what has any of the above list done to promote the quality of the products? Nothing, SR556, like we really needed someone else making an AR clone. What is it that makes a Scout rifle any different than any of their other rifles except short barrel and a rail on top. Hell I could chop the barrel off and add a rail if I wanted something like that. Most people I've talked to about the "Scout Rifle" has nothing but complaints about lack of quality. You know, I read Jeff Cooper for years ranting about the "Scout Rifle" never have understood what the point is. The 10/22 wasn't designed to be a shtf gun so why design high capacity mags for it? There are plenty of aftermarket companies that are happy to do that. You seem to be missing the point that these are all just gimmicks designed to relieve you of your hard earned money. Nothing new or improved about any of them. Bill Ruger believed in building quality products that people could afford, not gimmicks to relieve them of their cash. I can remember when Ruger built very high quality arms at a price most people could afford, comparable to Smith & Wesson and others, yet a fraction of the price. Now they are just another gun company trying to get rich off marketing gimmicks and lower quality products. Again, if you are training your child to shoot, load one round in the 10 round mag at a time and save your money. Or buy a single shot, that's what my dad did for me. Total nonsense.

Woodstock, you labor under a common misconception that that which you do not agree with or desire must, by definition, be stupid, and anyone who disagrees must be a sucker.

I do not want 25-round factory mags for my 10/22 because of Walter Mitty "SHTF" scenarios. I want them because sometimes it's just fun to rip off a bunch of rounds. And the aftermarket hi-caps, in my experience, suck.

Ruger makes a one-round loading platform available. They do not force anyone to buy it. They are not relieving anyone of money who does not voluntarily wish to purchase it for reasons of their own. That's how the free market works.

Here's another example of the free market in action: I was never interested in Bill Ruger's giant Vaqueros with the ugly "now let them try to say they didn't see it!" billboard plastered all over the side of the barrel. Then they started selling medium-frame Vaqs with an inconspicuous warning on the underside of the barrel. I bought two and have enjoyed them immensely. I guess I'm a sucker.

You seem to be quite willing to put words in someones mouth. I never said anything was stupid. Don't presume to know what misconceptions I might labor under. As for 25 rounders being fun to "rip off a bunch of rounds", I have no argument with that. My point was that Bill Ruger didn't see the need to market his products to that mentality. He was a serious shooter who wanted to design weapons for like minded people and there were plenty of aftermarket magazines available for those who wanted to play with their guns. The OP in this thread basically asked for opinions on the magazine in question. Is mine somehow worth less than yours? It seems to me that you are guilty of doing exactly what you accuse me of.
you labor under a common misconception that that which you do not agree with or desire must, by definition, be stupid, and anyone who disagrees must be a sucker.
While I'm at it, what is the deal with people coming on this forum lately and immediately attacking another member who has been here for a while. We are mostly a peaceful crowd here, Sure we have some disagreements but we generally get along pretty well. Try getting to know some of the members before you start making unfounded accusations and trying to pick a fight over a nearly 4 month old thread.

There are numbers of youth shooting training programs - for example Boy Scouts, 4-H and local organizations doing youth and other shooting training based on NRA classes. With perhaps a dozen children on the firing line, some of whom are first time shooters, having assurance that only one round is loaded in the rifle is an added safety precaution. I've seen some adults that I don't trust with just one round.

For example, the Boy Scouts shooting sports requirement for introductory training requires a bolt action .22 and hand loading only one round at a time in the chamber.

Makes me think this mag is aimed a first time rifle training and mainly for youth.
