    Haven't yet put this on my TD, but have installed it on my 10/22 carbine and I like it very much.

    It looks pretty (beautiful, actually) and would make a nice addition, but I am led to wonder about functionality. How is it in the ergonomics department? I have found Ruger's stock extended release (wow, only took them a few decades to figure that one out) to be quite useful for one-handed release/catch of the mags, but I see this unit as potentially being in the way of such. Even worse, could it catch on a long sleeve and dump the mag while you are working the rifle? Someone with actual experience could help here...

    I've had one for quite awhile. The only negative I can voice is that the shape of the release does NOT match the countour of the trigger guard. I thought that it would nest nicely against the trigger guard, but it does not. The release just has it's own form, that's all. It is easier to use than the extended release because I don't have to really move my shooting hand at all to drop the mag. I can just use one of the fingers on my right hand to drop the mag into my left, all while still holding onto the wrist portion of the stock.

    Thanks for that, train-man! I've often wondered about this one and your input gives me food for thought. :D

    I've been using one on my 10/22 for some time. Never had a problem with it catching on clothing or anything else and dropping the mag unexpectedly. It does take a little getting used to when you switch over from the factory mag release to this one, but I find it to be very easy to use.

    Thanks for the input folks. I have been using mine with my 3-10 round Alangator magazines for a few weeks now and am very glad I made this investment. Very well worth it for anyone with the 10/22 in my opinion.

    I have the similar release from KIDD and like it very much on my first 10/22 and just put one on my new synthetic.

    Avoided a few of the others for contour and being a little sloppy.

    Went with a Power Custom and am pretty happy with it so far.

    I missed this thread until now.

    I have one on each of my 10/22s. I used the tactical solutions brand, and I love them. Thousands of rounds and hundreds of mag changes without any problems.
