    These have got to be the best thing Ruger ever did for the 10/22. Sure, there have been butler creek, hotlips, etc for years, but all of the aftermarket 10/22 'hi capacity' mags have been hit or miss at best in my experience.

    I have 4 BX-25 mags (had those since they first hit the online market), and just made a deal for 3 more of them. They are the cats meow, the bees knees, and any other silly old saying you can come up with. Seriously, best thing since sliced bread isn't saying enough about them. I've not had a single problem with my BX-25 mags, and being able to throw 25 rounds of super cheap 22lr in quick fire is about the most legal fun you can have these days without breaking the bank.

    The 10/22 is one of my favorite firearms to shoot, a close call between it and the TSG-22 conversion for my Glock. The BX-25 round mags are a HUGE part of what makes my plinker so much fun.

    Grand Slam on these mags Ruger!

    Ridiculous prices! I order 3 of the BX-25s in December and was fortunate to get them when I did for MSRP. Haven't even had a chance to shoot them but I can tell they're quality items when compared to my old Butler Creeks, etc. I've also been picking up the Ruger brand 10-rders when I can find them. Even those are disappearing. Got another one I want to grab tomorrow when the shop opens. 10's are better than 0's.

    OB, I got mine through a vendor in Brookings, OR. They were happy to ship to the Socialist Republic of NY - the tin star in my wallet helps some.

    Problem is, those fine folks are swamped. Inventory perpetually empty. Good for business. Bad for... well, you know.

    I found them on Midway's site on 12/31 on sale for $21.99. I made an order immediately, knowing that they were backordered until 2/26. Later in the day, I checked and the b/order had beenmovedback until May something. Now they're just marked, "Not in stock, no backorder".So I sent their CS an email and got a reply saying my order is in the system and depending on where it falls on the list, I should get it around the end of March.

    I've for 7 of them, 3 I just got and have not tried out yet, but the other 4 I have put a wide variety of ammo through and not had any feed problems.

    I have read of others who had issues with theirs, and one fix I found was to take apart the mag, at the bottom there is a red spool. You can take a spent 22 short shell, slip it into that spool and it helps hold the spool in place as it coils which seems to help on fully loaded mags when the round is not sitting at enough of an angle to get good pickup.

    Glad I bought mine last year. Have never had a problem with mine. The only down side is they may soon be against the law to own. I think someone stole mine though so I'll be OK

    The only problem I have with mine is that it's so easy to blow through 100 rounds of irreplaceable ammo. I try to limit myself to 100 rounds, but I used to go through most of a brick on a nice day.

    I picked up a 10 round Ruger mag at my LGS yesterday for $16 and change. It was the last one they had or I would've bought all they had for that price!The salesman said they've been out of the hi-caps for quite awhile.

    Love the BX-25, have 4 of them. Haven't had any problems with any of them.

    I do feel your pain about going through the ammo too quickly. Can easily fly through a 500 brick of 22LR in no time flat with the BX-25. It didn't use to be a problem, now with the scarcity of ammo it's easier to find a unicorn then it is a 500 round brick at a reasonable price.

    For those interested, Natchez has the Butler Creek steel lip 25 round mags in stock and on sale for about $22. I ordered a couple for my son and me. Someday if they're in stock for a reasonable price, I'd like to get a hold of a couple of the BX-25s.

    You have to keep searching and be fast on the draw right now to get BX-25s at a reasonable price. CDNN had them in stock last week for I think $29, but they didn't last very long

    They are excellent mags.
