Hi,

Numrich has replacement inner and outer magazine tubes available. The 22 S,L,LR will work. The only one that will not fit is the 22 WMR tube.

You can also purchase the parts to assemble your own tube from Brownells.

Homestead has both the inner and outer tubes.

Wisners has the inner tube also, part number 4962A

Thank you so much! Will this replacement part bring gun value down substantially? I'm not selling it just curious.
Thanks for your lightning fast response

Hi,

If it is just the inner tube it will not affect the value much at all. If it is the outside tube I would deduct about 10% from the value because of the finish match to the rest of the gun. Homestead has outside tubes from original guns which I would use, a factory part will always keep the value of the gun better than an aftermarket part.
