    Default Question on Ruger 10/22 for SA

    Have a general question about semi-auto rimfires and temporary import permits in to RSA. Can I bring one without too much hassle? It would be scoped and have a 10rd magazine. I have a converted to 17HM2 10/22 that I'd like to use for my nighttime springhare shoots. Thanks, Hog

    I don't think you will have luck getting either a semi auto or a rimfire into SA.

    Im sure if this is wrong someone will correct me.
    The journey is the reward.

    I sort of surmised the semi-auto would be verboten, but not a rimfire. I have a nice CZ in .17HMR that would work well also.

    Contacted my PH and he said my CZ 453 bolt action in .17 HMR is OK.
