High Capacity .22 pistols?

We all know that there are many high capacity handguns on the market and have been for many years.
Can anyone tell me of a current high capacity .22 pistol?
Or does anyone bother to make one?

depending on what you consider high capacity there isnt alot out there most semi auto 22 pistols are 5 to 10 rounders and have seen some conversion kits for some centerfire pistols that would have slightly higher capacity like 15 rounds.
might do a search for calico 22 pistols or find a used intratec tec22 that would accept 10/22 rifle mags for a high capacity pistol havent read anything good about either one of the above manufacturers.

Thanks for the reply. I was only looking for something in the order of 15 rounds of so.
I guess I will just ask the dealer next time I am in the store.

The law limiting magazines to 10 rounds has expired.

there is a gatling gun conversion out there for .22 calibers... and for some reason it's legal.

The reason for low capacity .22 pistols isn't because no one wants them. Stacking rimmed cartridges in a single stack magazine tends to make for unreliable feeding, so past 15 rounds they seldom work well.

Ceiner makes 15 round mags for the 1911 .22 conversions, these mags also work on Kimber conversions, Advantage Arms and Wilson conversions.

The biggest problem is the large rim on .22's make it nearly impossible to stagger the rounds and have them feed reliably. Ruger 10/22 magazines work well because they are single stack curved mags, but will not fit in a pistol grip.
