Mossberg® 25 Round Magazine and Loading Cap for Mossberg Tactical 22 and 715T Rifles
Fun when not jamming
I bought two of these magazines, I can get 25 rounds inthencee with out difficulty but have similar probs as other reviewers with jamming every 5 rounds or so. Seems like there's something catching in the inside of the mags with the red plastic piece. Does seem to work better with copper noses then lead. I lubed them and will let them sit fully loaded to see if it will make a difference. Haven't had a chance to go back to the range yet. Here's hoping......

Doesn't Seat properly
It doesn't seem to seat properly and starts wiggling out when fired causing a jam at about the 9th shot. Probably varies by unit though. There was a guy at the range with the exact same set up so we were switching to see if it was the gun or the mag. His mag was doing the same thing on his, on my gun it almost worked its way all the way out.
Wish the wife wouldn't have discarded the packaging before I had a chance to use it. Now I can't return.

I have had 2 of these mags for quite a while. One works perfectly, everytime, all 25 rounds. The second mag misfeeds about every 3rd round. BUT, i am using them in a Mossberg 702 Plinkster, not a 715. The top 10rd section of this mag is identical to a 10rd 702 mag. And I know of several people using the 702 mag in a 715 and have seen them listed as a suitable 715 mag, So, I don't think the different rifle is a problem. It may just ba a small manufacturing flaw or a burr that I haven't found yet. It is made of a very durable composite materialI. It won't bend, warp or dent like metal. I do recommend you buy one. If it works, like i believe it will, buy a second one. If now send it to Mossberg and I bet they will replace it till you get one that works. If you don't have the patience to work it out, sell the rifle to someone who does and spend more for a Ruger 10/22.

Although I have not used the magazines, l did ensure they worked with my rifle. They connected and disconnected from the rifle just like the magazine that came along with the rifle.
I will go to the range very soon, when I get more ammunition.
I expect no problems. I gave 4 stars for bass pro's excellent service and the quality of the item.
If it works as well as I expect on the range, I would raise my rating to 5.
