We have sold 1,000's of Ram-Line stocks over the years.
This is some of the the info we have seen that may prove useful.



Waranty not covered are products sold in Golden Colorado or prior to 2001.
Only Current  production since 2001 are covered by a limited warranty (ATK).


Ram-Line Magazines
 
Have been discontinued and replaced with Shooter Ridge Champian Target Magazines
 Better product, and easier to clean.
 The 50 shotmagazine will work only in 10-22 with the metal trigger guard.. Design change from Ruger
changed the trigger guard specifications when Ruger changed to a Plactic triggerguard

Ram-Line 10-22 magazines.
We find that lead bullets, and standard velocity loads will not always feed properly. 
Best ammo we have found that works is Federal Classic HV or CCI Mimi Mag  Round Nose.
Cheap 22 LR in lead in Winchester and Blazer,  are the worst offenders in jamming.

CAMO PAINT INSTRUCTIONS
Customer can paint stock as you wish, any pattern is fairly easy to do. Camo pattern not hard to do.  First clean stock , with an oil free cleaner. Lightly sand with fine grit sandpaper.
Epoxy paints work best. Get  several colors of epoxy matte finish fast drying paint, chose colors that match terrain you might be using the firearm in.
Apply base coat of paint  (light color best) to stock. then using a differnt color and using a leaf (or other object).  hold leaf 1-2" inches above stock, lightly spray over leaf ,
causing a over spray pattern surrounding the leaf on to the stock. Alternate leaf or shapes around using different colors. 
Presto! Camo pattern for the cost of paint, and less in less than one hour

Ram-Line 10-22 magazines.

We find that lead bullets, and standard velocity loads will not always feed properly. 
Best ammo we have found that works is Federal Classic HV or CCI Mimi Mag  Round Nose.
Cheap 22 LR in lead in Winchester and Blazer,  are the worst offenders in jamming.
