John Goerger: I had the .22 rifle and wish I hadn't sold it back to a gunstore (am into Astronomy telescopes/equipment as well & wanted to get some additional Astronomy equipment at the time ~1999).
Was a great firing wpn so long as I used CCI Mini Mag .22 rds Use anything else and it wouldn't digest the ammo..so long as I used the CCI Mini Mag, no jam & fired all 100 rds with no feed problem If I could find one would definitely purchase it for a reasonable cost..had 2 100 rd maga..was with the Orange County Sheriff's Department Orange County CA during the LA Riots in the 90s..
Firemedic712: I've had craps that were prettier than this contraption
ytubepuppy: You don't need some red dot scope to make it fun to shoot. And they are fairly accurate even with open sights.
nopotato: It looks like a laser gun from a 70s sci-fi movie lol
WHO9119: I have one of the orginals with the wood furniture always liked the look kinda remind me of the planet of the Apes
Nvsworks: I own this calico model, as fast as I can pull the trigger, it shoots without a problem, it a very fun gun to have, but what I will say is, when loading the magazine, use new, clean ammo, if you use old dirty ammo, then it will jam. Other than that really fun gun.
ZAY HERTZ (DEEPREST): ...buy the CZ 61 Skorpion .32acp w/ the 30 round mags.
ZAY HERTZ (DEEPREST): Good Lord, these are hard to find, despite being made currently, and in my corner of America. But recently two of these suckers popped up for sale at a REASONABLE price (not $1,000+, MSRP is only 6). I JUST missed my chance at the 100 round 9mm Liberty with an extra 50 round helical mag and shell catcher. Bummer! BUT... I have secured a purchase of the pistol version of the 22lr sucker with a 100 round mag for this weekend. I am so excited. If this had fallen through I was going to...
Reindeer911: It WAS originally made in California. When the "assault" weapons ban was passed along with the high cap magazines, American Industries was forced out of business. A few years ago someone bought the licensing and whatnot, and reopened in Oregon under Calico Light Weapons Systems. As a result these guns have become potential collectables and I've certainly watched the value of mine better than triple over the years. So to liberals out there who think it's all a big myth, all I can say is thanks!
Hemimike426: Chamber this for rifle rounds and you got yourself an exellent gun.
ghwbr1968: I will never see one like this. Thanks to civilian disarmament.
nick kuszak: its cool and all but...anyone getting a "spaceballs" vibe with this rifle?...
perreterecon: this was used as a "laser rifle" in Seaquest!!
Reindeer911: Do you need the full magazine or just the spring? Calico is actually back in business now and you can get replacement mags... be warned however as they are VERY expensive! Current price is $141. However if you just need the spring, they are only running about $15
Reindeer911: Oh yeah, they are definitely fun when they are working right, and they definitely attract a lot of attention. I got mine back in '86 when they were new on the market. I've found with my M100 that lead fouling in the action was the biggest issue because as each round fed into the chamber, a slight amount was getting shaved off the top of the bullet. Ive found that to keep the reliability up about every second magazine the rifle should be completely stripped down and the action cleaned and lubed.
roddymcclain: While the M100 is a pleasure to shoot, the Ruger 10/22 is be more reliable. A lot of the reliability issues with the M100 is the ammo used. It's made for hyper ammo. It works wonderfully with stinger and like quality. I have found that it will work very well using Wal Mart Federal bulk ammo in the 550 packs. You might have 2 or 3 malfunctions every 100, the cost saving make it easy to put up with.
roddymcclain: The first thing you do before loading any ammunition is to press the tension spring release in the center of the winding knob. Then turn the winding knob until the mag follower is in place. Load 50 rounds and press the tension spring release again. Finish loading the rest of the ammunition and press the tension spring release once more. At this point, wind the tension knob 15 full revolutions as stated in the manual. This should be enough allow the last round to be fired. Good luck.
SuperRip7: An astronauts guns.
Jerru Lopez: Spaceballs that is the only thing this gun reminds me of
