Full Auto Ruger 10/22 With Red & Green Tracers
Yes…you read the title correctly, shown in the video at the bottom of this article is a Ruger 10/22 that’s been converted to FULL AUTO. While it may look cool to some, former and current military personnel understand that firing on full auto is a tremendous waste of ammunition, why use an entire clip to hit your target, when 2 to 4 rounds fired at semi auto can be just as (if not more) effective.
I’ve owned the Ruger 10/22 rifle before and I bought 30 round magazines for it, but I’ve never seen one fire fully automatic before. It sounded like someone turned-on a hand held saber saw…it was THAT fast. I know the .22 caliber bullet isn’t very big…but when you have 20 to 30 rounds firing at that speed, it would make anyone duck for cover. And if you’re using .22.LR mag hollow point stinger rounds…it has the potential to REALLY get serious and extremely deadly. Of course, the Ruger 10/22 rifle wasn’t designed to be fired at full auto, the standard barrel for that rifle wouldn’t be able to handle that rate of fire and would more than likely start to melt, (or warp) after only 2 to 4 magazines at that high rate of fire.
For purposes of federal law, a machine gun is defined as:
“[A]ny weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manually reloading, by a single function of the trigger. The term shall also include the frame or receiver of any such weapon, any part designed and intended solely and exclusively, or combination of parts designed and intended, for use in converting a weapon into a machinegun, and any combination of parts from which a machinegun can be assembled if such parts are in the possession or under the control of a person.”
