Ruger Replacement Magazines
The factory magazines from Ruger are the only trouble free magazines I have used in many 10/22 Rugers. These are the same exact quality factory magazines that came with the gun, they work fine everytime and are quailty products reasonably priced. It is nice to have several extra magazines with any firearm.

Did what was expected and , so far, has functioned flawlessly. Have only ran about 50 rounds through it. The lil lady LOVED it!

The Original and Highest Standard
I have 3 of these replacement magazines for my Ruger 10/22s. They are reliable and feed most brands of ammo with ease. After a couple hundred rounds it is important to clean the front of the steel lips (directly below the tip of the bullet when loaded). This is the area the new rounds will pass to feed so keeping the spent powder and residue to a minimum will ensure dependable service.
The only drawback I see with these magazines is that there is no way to access the inside of the magazine to clean it. Due to the fact it it is a rotary design you cannot simply reach straight down into the mag and sweep it out with a q-tip. I give these mags a good shower of Rem Oil and then store them upside down on top of paper towels. This gets most of the powder and residue out.
Tactical Innovations and Ruger's 25 round magazine can be taken apart so you can fully clean these higher capacity mags.
These are still terrific magazines that have been in service for decades. I would steer clear of Winchester's Super-X ammo. I have found that they are the only rounds that did not feed consistently with this magazine.

Not The Same At ALL
This is not an exact equal to the magazine that comes with the rifle. The chassis is thinner and lighter. It is not stamped with "10 shot" on the back. It is molded a little bit different. Therefore, this magazine won't work with original magazines when trying to use the Alangator Trimag. It is harder to remove from the gun and it is over priced!
