    Won't feed at all using Winchester 555 from Wally World. I realize you get what you pay for, but has anyone had any success with these mags with different ammo?

    BTW, firing a stock Ruger 10-22.

    Thanks.

    No, does your magazine have plastic feed lips? Is so that is most likely your problem. You may want to look at Alangator TriMag. Connects the of your stock 10/22 rotary mags. Allowing you to carry thirty rounds on your gun. You can find them online if just over $10, oh and there made in America.

    I just got back from the range and I think I see the problem...sort of. First, yes, it's all plastic. But I think it actually goes into the gun too far. The slide gets stuck and never can connect to the round to chamber it. As I was trying to rack a round, I was simultaneously releasing the mag and slightly pulling it out when poof....the round got racked. Of course, a split second later, the mag was in my hand. I'm cool with throwing these things away and starting over, but if anyone has a simple fix for this, I'd be more than happy to try it.

    12fretter-maybe a dremil with a small fine grit sanding wheel,kind of a cut-to-fit deal

    But what do I cut? There is a ridge that I shaved almost completely off with a knife, but it didn't help.

    I think I need to try and take some fine pictures of it and see if I can show it.

    If you do manage to shave down the feed lip so everything fits flush, eventually the plastic will wear down and Fail to feed once again. Pick youeself up a trimag ,you will not be disappointed.

    Hey there fretter,
    Just wanted to drop back in and let you know that I recently picked up a 30 round banana clip for my 10/22 with steel feed lips for $20 from ammunitiontogo.com
    Works perfectly, no complaints and it will last unlike those with plastic lips.
    Definitely worth looking into it your still have FT problems.

    Yep, it's a common problem. The only aftermarket high capacity 10-22 magazine that is reliable other than the new Ruger 25-round mag. is the Butler Creek Steel Lip 25-round mag.. You need to make sure you get the steel feed lips if you want it to feed reliably. Even Butler Creek has a cheaper brand called Hot Lips that are plastic and aren't worth crap. The BC Steel Lips go for $15-20. I've got a bunch of them and they all work great. :cool:

    Tactical Innovations make some good ones too, but their prices a way higher.

    Ruger makes their own 25 rnd mags for the 10-22. A lot better than aftermarket. Go to the Ruger website or CDNN.

    I've got a couple of 30 round plastic 10/22 magazines from Cheaper than Dirt-the cheap ones that go for $8.97, CTD #MAG-416. Have not experienced any feed problems that can be traced to the magazine. I've learned long ago when you buy "cheap", and the ones I bought are cheap, you get what you pay for. If "ANY" issues arise from these mags that can't be fixed/ resolved, I'll simply pitch them and maybe consider buying a better quality 30 round magazine. Also, since I installed a Timney Trigger Block with modified magazine release, the ten round magazine change-out cease to be any issue at all.

    Those are the same ones I have and have not been able to fire a single round with. Headed for the trash heap. New ones on order.
