I think you're right; not to minimize what Cane says. But, I'm going to the range tomorrow with both my Kimbers. They've both been cleaned and lubed. I will try the Kimber mag and all three (for each...

Ah ha! I see what you mean. The only reviews I've watched/read are NOT for the Takedown. They were for other Ruger 10/22's with the TG2000.
