Howdy-

After about 15 years off, I'm back in the saddle taking college courses. Part of a paper I'm working on requires some marketing research. If you could take a second to answer the poll, I'd appreciate it.

As a gun geek, feel free to comment which brands you're using and the reliability you've experienced

now that factory ruger 25 rounders are availible I'm planning to get a few for each of our 10/22 rifles

While not ideal this would allow the rifles to be pressed into service as defensive arms. A wise man once said, 'Nobody likes to leak.'

I used to own 5, but then my dad sold my 10/22 with out telling me and said "here's $150 towards your AR." I will NEVER forgive him for that.

No problem. I thought it was odd that the post went up before the poll was completed... Thanks for reading!

I own the maximum amount allowed by law. LOL.
I have had no problems with the Ruger mags (BX-25), however I had some other after market mags for 10/22's that did give trouble. Overall I am very happy with the Ruger Mags.

I have 3 of the Ruger BX-25's and 3 of the 10 rounders. The BX-25's are great magazines and will probably get more soon. The 10 rounders are nice for that flush look or bench resting.

I bought some non-Ruger (Pro Mag?) 32 rounders, and they work like a charm. Many hundreds of rounds through them, and not a glitch.

Although, it is distressingly (and somewhat expensively) easy to shoot 32 rounds really fast...

And yeah, whenever I chance to encounter one of the Ruger 25's, whether on the battlefield as a combat throwaway, or in Wal-Mart, I guess I'll pick one or two up.

I have tried most all variations of hi-cap mags for the 10/22's over the last 30 years.

TI's are great if you are using them in only one rifle. I use multiple 10/22's in classes that I teach, and a TI fitted to one rifle will not work in all rifles.

All I use now are the Ruger factory BX-25's.

Some of them...

I chose no and I don't want one. I don't have a need for them. The factory 10 rounders are compact and easy to carry. My .22 is a small game hunting gun, nothing more. As such, 10 rounds is more than enough. I often hunt with a bolt action and have just as much success as I do with an autoloader. To me, accuracy is the most important criteria.

I'd love to hear about the classes you teach with those things...

Butler Creek Steel Lips were okay, if you cleaned them and sprayed with silicone lube once in a while.

But the Ruger BX25 is da bomb.

Weapon in the left, what stock is she wearing? Link? Like the Millett scopes.:thumb: Second question: Where did you get the replacement grips for the 22/45? That's assuming it is a 22/45.

To the OP: Through my time in the military I have lives in places where hi capacity magazines (including those for the 10/22) were both legal and illegal. So I will leave it at this: I have used them, but may or may not own some. Is that vague enough?

Steel lips are always better for 10/22, have not used the BX-25 mags though. Maybe I will have to try them out.

My preference, is see through magazines for the 10/22 (hi capacity) so I can visually see my round count. I know it shouldn't matter for a 10/22, but why not?
