Try breaking them in 1st. I've had problems with my Butler Creek mags until I got them broke in. You might try a VERY light sprinkling of powdered graphite.

If you bought them both the same day then that'd explain it. If one is bad the whole batch is. TI25 mags are the best right now. Ruger has come out with one too for around $30.

If they have the plastic lips...that is probably the problem. Steel lips are the way to go. Another thing to check is different types of ammo. Some guns/mags like certain brands/shapes better than others.

Have three forms of 10/22s. Standard, Sporter, and Target Use both forms of aftermarket Butler Creek and even a few Eagles. None fail to function. However, I break the mags in when new by several to a dozen reloads, using only 25 rounds. If all is well, I usually leave a round or two less than the 30 full.
For some reason the factory 10 rounders with exception of one never need a break in. Bah humbug! not as much fun as ripping off 25 or more!!!!
