Something for your "Praxis" column. I found the link on "Say Uncle", so credit them. The important thing for me is to get the information out.
Many folks use the venerable Ruger 10-22 rifle with standard 10 round rotary magazines for their "survival" rifle. It's a great rifle, very accurate, easy to maintain, and fun to shoot.
However, 99.5% of all people who own one do not ever take apar their magazines and clean them. It's not because they're lazy (well, ok, some are, but most aren't), it's because there's not been any credible information available to teach someone how to do it without ruining the magazine. Up until recently, maybe it wasn't necessary as the mags were so cheap it wasn't worth attemping. Well, that's not the case any longer as most people can attest, so here's the answer:
This link has complete information along with pictures and exploded drawings to show you exactly how your little 10-22 rotary 10 round magazines come apart and go together!
This needs to be printed and put in the reference material of everyone who owns one of these fine little plinkers!
