I had a older 10 round rotary magazine for a 10/22. Would not feed bullets so just put it aside. Then I ran across a utube video on disassembly and and cleaning.

Check it out -

my magazine works just fine now.

Hope it helps someone.

Good video, I have "rescued" several mags that were going to be trashed using that method, just did it before by the seat of my pants. Had a couple given to me because they "jammed up" (full of dirt and junk). Still using them.

That voice and music made it sound like something made in the 1950's. I didn’t even know you could take the stock 10/22 mags apart. Nice instructional video in spite of the voice and music. ;)

Well, the magazine is easy to take apart. Putting it back together is another matter all together. Mine has not worked since I took it apart. The rounds load real easy, but there is no spring tension, so the rounds do not feed reliably. I have had it apart and back together many times. It will just no longer work reliably or at all. I regret ever taking it apart in the first place, tho I’m sure this was the first time since new in 1970 and it was definitely very dirty. Fortunately, it was not my only magazine.

10-22 mag

Hi Gary

Please watch the video again - the little pin needs to go into the small hole of the machine screw. Then turn 8 rounds and press in to lock the wound spring. Should work just fine - I have done several and they always work when back together. Good luck and I sure hope it works for you this time.

I’ve had the video open every time I’ve had the mag apart. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve had that mag apart and back together, I could buy a new one. I just now took it apart and put it back together 3 times. First time, rounds just fell down into the mag, but after the third time it seems to cycle all 10 rounds by hand. I did nothing different than any other time I had it apart. I’ll see how it works at the range. Thanks for responding.

As I said before, I had the mag apart and back together lots of times and had problems every single time. After the last post where I thought I might have it right, it turns out that a trip to the range proved I finally got it back together. It ran flawlessly. Loads easier than it used to also. I did nothing different than I did all the other times I tried putting it back together. It works now. I don’t think I’ll be taking the Ruger factory stock mags apart again unless they just quit working.
