those things are a surprisingly good design actually, very reliable IME, even though they look rather different from what most people think of as a mag. And the original rifle is very sweet.
(Btw, I assumed it is the original 22 cal, but could possibly be a different caliber, I don't know what they came up with recently...)
Wow, that picture took me back. I bought a 10/22 Sporter brand new in 1982, for plinking. Yup, that's the standard magazine that comes with it. Great long gun, never jams. Don't have it anymore, sold it to a friend many years ago.
nah, just move it to hunting etc, we gotta teach them young ones a thing or 2 about classics...
Plus there'll be stories about how great the 10/22s are and before too long you'll realize you need one to go with the mag. Bonus!
