I've got a shooters ridge 50rd mag for my 10/22 very poor quality...and this doesn't say a lot about their workmanship. Maybe I'll take it out and try it again. I wish it worked well because it looks AWESOME.

I don't mind a little minor tinkering...I love to make things that don't work, work properly.

Might be why I buy so many beater guns & refurb 'em...not to mention solid wood furniture...lol
Antique Refinishing became a hobby of mine after working for an Antique Refinisher
who also did finishing for the Unfinished Wood Furniture Store (Wood You) that I worked for.
I learned a lot from Mr. Bailey (Bailey's Attic, Pensacola) over the years, and have used those techniques
to refurbish a lot of old furniture which would have been thrown out had I not rescued it

As soon as I get my hands on a pair of these mags, I'll find a fix for 'em, and then let SR & everyone else know

Then this mag is for you, Big Shrek! I bought two from the web at shooterscatalog.com in Ohio and tried them out on my 795. The cartridges got bent every other round and jam on the rifle. Same thing happened on my second mag. So I compared the mag with the 10 and 7 round marlin mag and noticed that:

1. Marlin mags seat the .22 ammo at a slightly more upward angle
2. The Marlin Mag has a bigger and squared opening in front of the mag where the bullet passes to go to the chamber, thus showing the bullet head entirely with room to spare under it.
3. The Shooters Ridge mag has a round and shallower opening up front that partially obstructs the bullet head.

I couldn't do anything about #1 so i got a small half-round file and deepened by about 1 to 2 mm the front portion of the Shooters Ridge mag. After function tests with the rifle on safety and pointed in a safe direction, the rifle chambered and ejected all 25 rounds in both mags without incident, whether on fast or slow cycle, and even from hold open and then snap shut. Can't wait for the range trials part 2.

Great file work, keep the info coming!!

My twin sons were born 2 & 1/2 months Early...so I've not been able to go find a mag to play with myself...
nor would I have time to play with it right now anyway
My local SR dealer hasn't gotten any in yet for some odd reason...I'll have to order from USA Midway or something when I get a chance.
