    You will be pleased to learn that I took my 1970s Ruger 10/22 to the range today -after it had ~ a 30 year rest. Needed to sight the Bushnell "Sportview" 4x scope in again; it got bumped somewhere during the two cross-country moves it suffered. Both the factory 10 round mag and the Ram-Line 25 rounder fed without a hitch (Federal bulk copper plated ammo. That Ram-line is all-plastic (no metal 'lips'), but it shows no sign of wear, so must be I didn't use it much.

    Another sunny day, temp around 80, humidity around 50%. Summers in Vermont are a trial.

    I had a couple of 10/22 Rugers and the dumbest thing I ever did was get rid of them. Bill Ruger made a classic and it was inexpensive for the time. We used to go to a pond that was overrun with frogs and pick them off. That was a great time! Hold on to that ancient piece of history and you will never regret it.

    I had an old 10/22 and also had the Ram line mag, but also had a Ram Line folding stock.
    I lost that one in a fire 3 years ago. I really miss that gun.
