Be sure to clean them every once in a while. Mine tend to jam up and stop feeding.

They actually become more reliable with use. When new mine would have a failure to rise.. Took them apart and cleaned them when new which improved them. Fully loaded them and after using several times the issues went away.

They were a little wobbly as well which changed the feed angle so I got the
KIDD Stainless Steel Magazine Latch Plunger with the higher tension spring and the mags are more firmly held in place.

Mine is an older 10/22 with the carbine stock and metal barrel band

Because this is the way it's supposed to be pink. Lest we forget what freedom looks likes.

Not too many years ago here in Kali you could buy a BX-25 "repair kit". A complete magazine in knock down form, took about five minutes to fully assemble the first one.

Tried the Butler Creek Hot Lips and Steel Lips way back when but never cared for them.. These Ruger mags are much better... again, mine had to be broken in..

Yeah the out of state posters are kind of annoying especially if they were never here (Calguns) before they moved. BUT it is good for us I GUESS.

I always used 25 rounders. I probably bought at least four BC hotlips before we picked up 10/22's way back when. I recall buying my four at Wildsports here in the Sac area. They still work, but I think there is one that drags a little... spring might be going or just wax buildup needs cleaning. They need very little maintenance though considering they got speedloaded and emptied at least ten times each range trip back when we were shooting 22's all the time. The Ruger BX-25 and BX-50 are nice and they disassemble and re-assemble easily. Butler Creeks are cool because you just snap them together to make a flippable pair that holds a box of ammo. But I guess the BX-50 is fine.

I'm sure there's plenty of new shooters here that feel oppressed hearing about people who have been in the sport forever and before the regular mag sales were forbidden. I'm sure it is mostly these poor souls that feel the need to come back and hang in a CA forum just to rub it in.

Yep, there is freedom out there. I wouldn't say OR is the best choice, but better than here at least for regular mags (for now).

The 10/22 is nothing to brag about at all. It's an ok gun but I'd much rather have a tube fed 22.

I like all of the OLDER samples. My Marlin 60 tube fed.. Super easy to tweak and resolve issues yourself (nickle trick etc..).. My older 10/22 (great aftermarket internal stuff)...And my not so old CZ Farmer bolt action.. My kids like my wife's pink Mossberg Plinkster. Never had a lever .22lr

Yeah the way I feel about 10/22's is they are fun to mod... but if adding up all the costs because you know you will replace everything except the receiver (you could replace that too) it gets expensive. It used to be pretty cheap to buy a $120 10/22, $140 VQ barrel, $60 in trigger parts, mag release, $60 stock, mags, etc... Now it seems like they are $100 more and the barrels are $100 more. Mine is pretty sweet, but I am excited about two CZ's I have in jail. One is a 455. Already have the 11mm to 25 MOA picatiny mount waiting with a scope. Need to get some extra mags. Don't need much for the CZ. Factory stock is SOLID, trigger is good, just needed to get rid of that 11mm dovetail. The CZ reminds me more of my Rem700 with HS precision stock than a .22 - nice rifles.

Actually...

Of all the things Firearms to be thankful for in Free America?

The high capacity Ruger .22 LR magazines ain't, to me, one of them.

All my 10/22's an RAR Compacts have the outstanding OEM rotary BX-10's.



Smooth bottomed perfection.

You can generally get what you need sent here if you have friends outside of CA. CA gun laws are a joke and are easily circumvented if one is so inclined.

I kind of feel my post was a little harsh. I apologies if I offended anybody. I have a 10/22, it's a fine gun, I just don't like mag fed 22 guns.

Garandimal, that's a beautiful gun.

The rotaries are great. If the CZ I just bought had a flush BX10 that would be a huge improvement IMHO. $30+ for a flimsy plastic single stack is a con.

I have six BX-25s that I bought before I retired that are still in the plastic. I have a dozen of the Butler Creek Steel lips 25 round magazines and four Hot Lips 25 round magazines that work beautifully. Someday I’ll unwrap the BX-25s when I need them.

I have about 10 of the Ruger factory 10 round magazines as well. I only have about a half dozen 10/22s in my safes. One for me, one for each grandkid, and one for the wife. They are very fun rifles.

Exactly!
I scored a group of Hotlips mags three years ago while visiting family in Minnesota. They were on clearance at the Fleetfarm for $2(IIRC) so I snagged every one. I forgot I had left them in my truck's toolbox and while visiting friends in SoCal they were stolen. Funny thing is I found $50 while I was there so I broke even. Amazing how things work out.

I have to agree, a rotary mag in a CZ would be a great improvement over that ugly 10 rd mag sticking out of my CZ455. It would allow me to position my hand in that spot. Instead I have to use a 5 rd mag to position my hand there.

Not bragging, making a statement of sorts. My Son just got a 60 round Magazine for his AR 15 pistol. The statement is this. Having lived in California for over 50 years myself and then moving to a free state, it is a relief to buy and shoot what you want.
OP, thanks for the post, enjoy your freedom.
