The Butler Creek, MWG and Ruger brand magazines (sometimes
referred to in error as "clips") we offer are available to fit 10/22
type rifles. Mags for the .22 long rifle caliber guns also fit the
.17 Hornady Mach 2 (.17HM2) caliber guns. Our 10/22 mags are available
in 10, 25, and 30 round capacity.
Ruger offers 10 and 25 round mags for their 10 22's. The reliability and quality of Ruger's 10 round, rotary mags (BX-1) is unquestionable. Their new, high capacity "banana clip" (BX-25) is extremely well made. We haven't had any problems with them at all. Ruger factory magazines/clips have steel feed lips and steel contact points (where the mag is held in place in the 1022 rifle). Although we have seen a few defective Ruger brand mags over the years, it is a rare occurence.
Butler Creek's Hot Lips and Steel Lips brands have been almost as reliable.
Again, more than 99% of Butler Creek mags function perfectly, right out of the
package. Occasionally, their quality control suffers and an entire batch of B.C.
mags will be defective. If one in a batch is good, they are all good.
However, if one in a batch is bad, they are all bad. Because of their more
durable, red nylon feed lips, the B.C. mags do cost more than Eagle mags.
MWG teardrop drum high capacity magazines have been some of the very best, most reliable hicap mags we've found. They have stainless steel feed lips and contact points, with a reliable belt design. The mag bodies are clear polycarbonate.
There are often capacity restrictions in various areas, these
days. If you hunt, please check your local laws for capacity
restrictions before using anything larger than standard, 10 round mags in your rimfire. In most parts
of the United States, plinking, varmint hunting, and target shooting can
be done legally with 10 round, or greater, capacity. Examples of States
where high capacity (greater than 10 rounds), rimfire rifle mags may no
longer be sold or imported are California, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York State.
Thanks to the continuing efforts of global gun banners, things may get even worse
in the future for American and international gun owners.
Outside the United States, a 5 round magazine is sometimes the
largest capacity rifle mag that can legally be used or owned. Australia
is one example of a country that has banned public ownership of rifle
magazines than can hold greater than 5 rounds. New Zealand has similar
laws. Currently, Canada has a capacity exemption for rimfire mags (there is no limit for Canada).
We do offer international shipping through our web
store. However, if you intend to buy magazines from us, please
check your country's laws before ordering.
All of our mags for Ruger 10/22 rifles and carbines are available
for purchase at our e-store Andean-inc.com. Also found there are a large selection
of other great accessory choices for dressing up your model of 10/22.
