Curious if anyone has ever built a double stack hi-cap .22....have anything to do with the shells having a rim and not feeding correctly?

The Ram-Line pistol had a 15 round double stack mag., if I remember correctly.

Is it true that cannibals won't eat clowns cause they taste funny?

Ive seen doublestacked mags for rifles in .22lr.
So why not a pistol too?

Think it was a 25 shot rifel, the mag was just about the double length of my Anshutz 10-shots.


Don't do anything that I've allready done - That'd be just plain STOOOOOOPID.

The Grendel P-30 holds 30 rounds of .22 mag in a double stack in a standard semi-auto configuration.

Yeah, feeding is not a problem (think Ruger 10/22 here with 50 round "banana" mag).
The Grendel that HeDog mentioned is one of the highest capacity factory setup that I can think of off the top of my head but it's in .22 WMR only best I can recall.
The highest .22lr capacity pistol that I can think of without looking it up would probably be the Intratec Tec-22 which uses a 10/22 type magazine. I used to REALLY want one of these, I wonder if they will come available now that the AWB is gone or if they were affected by the 1989 ban also. Does anyone know for sure?

I think it's a helluva idea. imagine a .22 LR pistol with a 30 round capacity in the grip. Now that would be a fun plinker.

what fun is plinking if youre not hitting anything? imagine the fatigue of holding a hi cap 22 out there for the 20th round? not me!

I see your point, but really, what's the difference if its the 20th round of your high cap, or the last round of your second 10 round magazine?

Has ANYONE ever gone shooting .22s and shot LESS than 10 rounds total?

The only difference the high-cap makes is you don't have to carry an extra mag (or reload as often).

Yeah, with the extra weight of a full capacity mag it's just like a S&W model 41 with the weights.
For me, there's different guns for different days. I've been in weird moods before and instead of taking a shotgun rabbit hunting I took my 10/22 and a 50 round mag and everytime a bunny ran I started punching the hell-fire trigger. I did fairly well that day, about as well as I would have if I would have used the .410 shotgun. And, with the difference in the price of shells it ended up costing about the same. But, that's something (for me personally) that doesn't happen often. I like accuracy most of the time when target shooting or hunting. But, it is a lot of fun to set up some tin cans and blast through 50 rounds as fast as you can. I guess that only interests those of us that haven't ever got to play with real full-auto's...

has anyone remembered what your thumb looks or feels like after loading the 50th round in a drum or a mag that big?

The Grendel is tupperware and weighs almost nothing. Dang thing is LOUD though, and now has gotten too collectable and valuable to go plinking with.

Yeah, that's why Ramline came out with a nifty little mag loader. It works real well until it jams which for me is probably every tenth 50 round mag or so. Still, that's a brick of ammo with ease.

Bobski, I am sure not taking anything away from careful aim and the utmost in accuracy, but there is a certain "fun factor" in just loading up a bunch of high cap mags and letting the lead fly.

I'd buy a double stack S&W 41 or 1911 chambered in .22 faster than Kerry can flip flop...
