    I have not seen one. I only use factory 10 rounder in mine.

    The only extended capacity magazines for the Ruger's. That I have used in the past, were the plastic Ramlines. They only held 2 additional rounds though. And weren't reliable. The plastic was inferior, and self destructed.

    Not that I have found. This is what I did for the 22/45 and the 10/22. Four for the 22/45 and 2 for the 10/22.

    I had similar results with my plastic Ramline breaking after a few uses. I also have 2 metal 12 round Ramlines that work great. Good luck finding those though. They are rare. You can order plus 1 magazine bumper extensions for the mkii mag. Good luck.

    EDIT: YMMV

    The only ones I have ever seen were custom made from the cutting and fitting of two
    standard Ruger 10 rounders into one extended that held 17/18 rounds.
    I do not know if they were successfully trouble free.
    Extended mags for a mk2 or mk3 would be unwieldily and IMHO a waste of money.
    Just carry extra Ruger mags, they work, reloads are a snap.

    Never seen one, and don't think they exist (or at least, not factory ones).

    In general, the rims on .22LR rounds makes reliable magazine construction difficult, and the longer the magazine, the more difficult it is to get them to work reliably, especially if the magazine has to be straight. There are reasons why extended .22LR magazines are usually curved or otherwise unusually shaped.

    Begging the question of why you "need" 20 rounds in a .22 rimfire handgun, if that is what you want, there are OTHER .22 handguns out there that can take extended magazines, including the Ruger Charger (which takes 10-22 magazines) and AR-15 style pistols that accept AR-15 type .22LR magazines.

    If you'd rather shoot your Ruger Mk II (and I would. . .at least that one is a "real" handgun designed as such for adults), then just buy a few extra magazines and be done with it.


    Edit:

Taking advantage of somebody.I agree that asking full price for these is probably "unsporting" (though caveat emptor), but I really don't think it would be taking advantage of anyone if you were to start them at one cent.

    If you sincerely believe they aren't particularly strong or reliable, you could even say so in the auction itself. Obviously you don't think they are "total" junk, or you'd have just put them in the garbage, right?

    Personally, I'd potentially pay a few bucks each for what amounts to "disposable" magazines, and I don't think that's so crazy. Even if they aren't all that durable, or even reliable, I think there are shooters who are really just occasional plinkers who would still be happy to have an extra mag or two and really might not care.

    My experience with the metal Ramline magazines, for the Ruger. Mirrors that of the plastic ones, unfortunately. The metal is to soft. So that after extended use. The feed lips bend causing FTF, jambing etc.

    Since I have got rid of my MK 1. I must have at least 4 of the miserable plastic and metal Ramline mags, laying around collecting dust. Can't see putting them on the auctions. Taking advantage of somebody.
