Ruger 10/22 in Rare .22 Magnum
I've wondered for years why Ruger doesn't make a 10/22 facsimile in other calibers with the rotary magazine, especially in a 22 Magnum, but now I know.
Why did Ruger stop making the 10/22 Magnum?
The official answer from Ruger was lackluster sales. It was manufactured for 9 years and only about 50,000 units sold. Compare this to over 5,000,000 sold of the 22 LR version. Then there is the other assumed answer that the 22WMR was discontinued due to extraction issues and breaking bolts. Collector rifle or not, now I'm wishing I hadn't bid on it. I want a gun that works.
