Best high capacity magazine for the 10/22

Greetings Everyone,

I finally took the plunge and bought a Ruger 10/22. Can you guys tell me which high capacity magazines work best with the 10/22? How are the Hot Lips magazines by Butler Creek? Are Ramline mags any good?

Thanks in advance!

Those are cheap for a reason. If you want good ones, spend the extra and go woth the ones from Tactical Innovations.

The Butler Creek and Ramline are ok until the get used a little. That's when everything goes south, at least thats what happened with mine. Been looking at the Tactical Innovations for a while but have been using the Ruger 10 rounders with no problems. Maybe someday I'll spring for the Tactical Innovations, when I can think of a good reason to buy them. Till then, I just load up the six Ruger mags and go to town.

I think the Tactical Innovations are the best made also. Other then that stick with the factory mags.

I tossed the 'RamLine' in the trash, I couldn't even bring myself to sell that to someone on FleaBay. It jammed in every rifle I have, and finally stopped feeding at all.
I've had fair luck with the "Butler Creek SteelLips" in my stock 10/22 but they won't feed reliably in either my custom targeter or the charger.
The way to go is the "Tactical Innovation" mag, but the price is hard to stomach.
I haven't tried the belt feed 50 rounder yet.

You can (or should) get good stuff and Not pay a fortune also.
$75 for a mag for a $200 dollar gun is ludicrous.
Do they work? Hell yes. Are they worth the money? Hell NO.
I'd rather invest in a Butler Creek loader and just stuff the factory mags full quickly.

Frozone, Brownell's sells the TI for $47 http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/sid=5...zine__25_Round I bought one when the price was $35 ... had it for about 6 months then sold it. A lot of people think it's cool to have some big honkin' magazine hanging out of their 10/22. For me ... it just got in the way. When I get so lazy that I can't change magazines every 10 rounds, it's time to quit.

These are the injected molded polymer resin ones.... not the aluminum ones....

Totally your opinion... go to rimfirecentral and see the kind of money that people will put into a 10-22 after buying one at base price. These things work and work well... are extremely durable - they may outlast the gun...much easier to clean that a factory mag. My opinion= worth it!!! actually...the way the us dollar is going...they may be worth more than money!!

Never said it wasn't my opinion. But I do agree with Iowegan, they get in the way.
I have one of those "tricked out" versions.

SigDreamer, TI makes three different TI-25 magazines. All are constructed exactly the same and have exactly the same features. The only difference is the material in the body and the feed lips on the cheapest one are not steel, plus price of course. See: http://www.tacticalinc.com/ti25-mags...0b62898e3cbe5f One of my friends bought an aluminum body TI-25 about the same time I bought a composite TI-25. Somehow his aluminum body got munched in his shooting box and wouldn't feed. We were able to take it apart and straighten it out enough where it would work. The composite model that I bought is tougher than woodpecker lips. I think you could drive over it with a car and not damage it. He liked my composite TI so much that he bought it (thanks) and got rid of his aluminum body TI. If I were to buy another, it would be the composite model, not the aluminum model. I haven't tried the $25 one but I'll bet it is a far better magazine than other brands ... if for no other reason than it is fully adjustable and can be taken apart for cleaning.

It seems silly to pay 75 bucks for something that isn't as durable as a $45 model. Being and old fart, it also seems silly to have an accessory that gets in the way ... but then I'm not into the "bling factor" like the young guys. For my money, I'd rather have three 15 buck Ruger factory mags with polymer bodies that take advantage of Ruger's rotary design, function flawless, and fit flush with the stock. And yes, I also have a tricked out 10/22 ..... maybe not as expensive as some but it sure does shoot!

Yes... I was merely pointing out the reason for the price difference.

"Worth It" or "not worth it" is the most subjective term in the gun world ( or the automobile world, or electronic world, etc. ) People buy all makes, models, calibers and accessories based on what features, cosmetics, name brand, etc. they like. That is what makes it "worth it" to them. To use your definition and apply it to other people like this

"A fool an his money"
is where the gun snobbery starts that you see on soo many boards. I can go to the Sig forum and get bashed all day for buying a P89 - it's too big, too bulky... the safety is awkward.. it's this.. it's that - Not worth it to someone that likes Sig features. For people who like the features of a P89 for their purposes, the Sig at twice the price is not worth it. The only real definition of "not worth it" is if an item does not function as advertised or intended - like buying something and then having to throw it in the trash! The TI functions as intended and advertised - leave the "worth it" decision up to the individual!! REMEMBER... this thread started out - what is the best high capacity magazine for the 10-22? I think it is the TI... does anyone disagree?

I like the composite TI mags. I have both the steel lips and hot lips also. The majority of the steel and hot lips I have work but some dont. After adjustment the TIs work without any problems.
