I don't know if Ruger ever made any FA 10/22s, but I do know that prior to the '86 ban, there was plenty of drop in parts that allowed the 10/22 to be full auto.

I remember many years ago seeing a 50+ round .22 long rifle that came out of Australia, or so I was told.
They had it at a gun show maybe 20+ years ago?
They wanted $1200 for it new then! But at least you could afford to shoot it!
I saw an M60 for sale the other day in Phoenix. Too much money ($7500) but what's the difference? I would have to float a loan to fire it more than a minute or so.
I put thousands of rounds through these 66-72 while in the Army.

Full auto .22 is a dream! Anyone who knows how much it costs to feed a full auto like I do will know what I'm talking about. You can't beat the price of a .22LR.

I can't remember the name off hand, but there was a kit made and registered pre-86 that converted a 10/22 to full-auto. The registered kits are still around in the Class III market and go for around $7K-ish. Sorry, can't remember the company name, but if I come across it, I'll edit and/or post.

Of course, there is going with an AC-556 and adding the .22LR adapter, etc.

Take care.

Full-auto .22 are a ball.

I'm getting a kit for my Uzi next.

But there are a lot of full-auto Ruger 10-22's out on the market. They just aren't cheap by any means and they sell quick. It's actually cheaper to do as Rurtal Turtle suggested and get an AC-556 and add a very reliable Ciener .22 conversion kit.

A $7000 part in a $200 gun! My wife would leave me, take my truck, my guns, and my dog. I wouldn't put a $7000 part in my car if it made it go 750 mph. People with lots of money do silly sh!t sometimes.

Well "skater dude" although they may be "weaksauce" (?) against a human regularly, with the virtually non existent recoil and full auto factor, a weapon like the Type 180 would cut a man up like a block of Swiss cheese.

.22lr are fun. A machine gun firing .22lr would be huge fun.
I would worry about the paper work on a converted 10/22. I would stick with an American 180 and eat the outrageous price tag.

I know this isn't what you're looking for, but it is fun to watch.

Those prices are a little outdated. The 10/22 full autos were made by Norell and they now sell for over $10,000 and the m60 you saw must have been semi because a full auto transferable to civilians goes for over $50,000. It could have been a dealer sample which is not obtainable by anyone other then a class III dealer they are samples for govt agencies so they can see if they would want to buy one but they can not be kept.

Hell a registered drop in auto sear for a AR-15 go for over $10,000 and all it is, is a $2 peice of metal. they drop in a AR and mke them full auto.

Hmmm...have you ever done that or seen it done? I think you might be overstating the simplicity of conversion, just a wee bit. That, and the fact that we do not discuss ILLEGAL conversions on this forum.

If everyone...

...who had ever been killed with a .22 Short, let alone a .22 LR, was resurrected, and organized to sing in a choir....they'd fill a few football stadiums...and probably wouldn't sing any better than they could play street poker...the .22 deserves more respect than many uninformed opinions give it...I remember when the Chicago Swat used it with a scope for a sniper rifle when environment forbade bigger calibers....the .22 is like a baby Copperhead snake...it'll kill ya quick as a big one...

Well stated, sheepdog. Many yrs ago when I lived on a reservation in Southern NM, I remember being a bit surprised that all they used to slaughter cattle was an older-than-dirt Winchester single-shot .22 rifle. They used .22 Shorts exclusively. Never saw a cow or bull argue they were too small. Let's see...2,500 lb bull vs. 200 lb man.

I remember a aritcle i think in guns and ammo that had a 22lr that looked like a mini .30cal, even belt fed. It looked pretty cool, cant remember if it is full auto though.

I saw a cool kit that took 2 ruger 10/22 and put them on a big tripod frame and you turn a crank and they fire like using a gatling gun, very cool!! Not full auto but spits out a lot of rounds!!!

i've seen videos of full auto 10/22's, i think the conversions were done by private gunsmiths, i dont know of any full auto 10/22's made by ruger. doesnt mean they didnt, just never saw one. yea, they look like a kick to play with, and its gotta be cheaper than say a 37 mm chain gun round for round

I had two wives leave me, and I'm still alive.
