As noted, the third party support that exists for the Ruger 10/22 platform is, in a word, astronomical. In fact, there are probably only two other rifles that rival it – the AR-15 and the AK-47. What is third party support? Third party support is a fancy term that basically means tons of companies are making tons of parts and accessories for the Ruger 10/22 platform, which means you get your pick of the litter when you make the big decision to upgrade your rifle. In fact, so many companies are manufacturing parts and accessories for the Ruger 10/22 that it is very hard to keep up with them all. Such is the case with Eagle International.
As of writing this, it seems that Eagle International has fallen off the map. With not so much as a company website, it makes researching the company to get you the skinny very difficult. Nevertheless, the fact that these Ruger 10/22 extended magazine releases are made in the United States and have been met with rave reviews from our customers should be enough to tell you that they are well worth your pocket change.
The Ruger 10/22 extended magazine release is an upgrade designed to replace the factory-installed magazine release. Constructed entirely from impact-resistant polymer, the lightweight Ruger 10/22 extended magazine release offers you the ability to easily reach the lever with minimal movement of your strong hand and is capable of shaving time and effort away from your magazine swaps. And not only is it simple to use, it is also simple to install.
To install the Ruger 10/22 extended magazine release, remove the magazine, inspect the chamber and clear the rifle if necessary. Begin by loosening and removing the front band screw and band. Next, center the safety and remove the stock from the receiver group. Press the magazine latch pivot/ejector pin (Part No. B-35) out of the bolt lock (Part No. B-41), making sure not to remove it from the bolt retainer as well. Insert the replacement magazine release while pressing in the magazine latch plunger (Part No. B-36). Reinsert the magazine latch pivot/ejector pin and reassemble the stock.
And there you have it; the Ruger 10/22 extended magazine release – a worthwhile upgrade to a worthwhile rifle. At just $1.50 per part, how could you possible avoid this deal?
