It is because the shotgun is pump action, not semi-auto.

A fixed stock is a fixed stock so yes it would comply. You would just need to be sure if the "buffer tube" on that stock is commercial or mil-spec to make sure you get the right one.

Also this shouldn't be an issue seeing how I was legally aloud to buy the ruger 10/22 and have a mag no longer than 10 rounds is it legal for me to have to stock on my ruger 10/22 with an FID ? If not that's complete bullshit.

Is it legal?

From Mass MGL

The term ''large capacity weapon'' shall be a secondary designation and shall apply to a weapon in addition to its primary designation as a firearm, rifle or shotgun and shall not include: (i) any weapon that was manufactured in or prior to the year 1899; (ii) any weapon that operates by manual bolt, pump, lever or slide action; (iii) any weapon that is a single-shot weapon; (iv) any weapon that has been modified so as to render it permanently inoperable or otherwise rendered permanently unable to be designated a large capacity weapon; or (v) any weapon that is an antique or relic, theatrical prop or other weapon that is not capable of firing a projectile and which is not intended for use as a functional weapon and cannot be readily modified through a combination of available parts into an operable large capacity weapon.

So a 10/22 is a large capacity firearm since it does accept 100rd mags and you should not be able to purchase/own on an FID.

With all the evil features there is no difference between a 10/22 and an AR15. They are both semi auto, both accept detachable high capacity mags, both can have pistol grips, threaded barrels, adjustable stocks, both are 22 cal.
