    I use my 10/22 to hunt , and After riding on the 4 wheeler for a couple years , the banana clip is loose .I was wandering if there was a way to fix it .like some way to tighten it. It stil works , but it gets very annoying when it rattles.

    Duct tape works fine. Wrap it around a few times till it's tight.

    As stated before, a bit of duck tape work just fine. Also, for future reference, ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1398816920.207881.jpg it's a magazine, not a clip. Just one of my pet peeves, sorry :)

    What is the manufacturer.

    If it's not a banana, it's not a banana clip.

    It is a bx 25 .... I have tried the butler creek ... But it seemed to be missing the barrel , so I am back to using the ruger bx 25 magazine.

    I like the Ruger BX-25. I'll spend some time and see what I can see!
    But I kinda like their duct tape idea. :(

    Ruger BX-25 can be broken down and cleaned for maintenance.

    Scroll down and select BX-25 video

    Butler Creek, use the steel lips, little more durable than the plastic version.

    What is the clip in the middle go to? The clip is to long to be for a sks, the ammo in the clip is too large to be 39's (7.62x39), and larger than anything the AR-15 shoots.

    The one between the 10/22 mag and the double stack pistol mag is a SKS stripper clip.

    SKS holds 10 rounds in the standard magazine. One stripper clip will charge it to full capacity

    I thought it was 5. I guess that's because I'm a mosin guy and I'm just used to 5.

    Some hold 20.. no reason to think think that a 5 isn't available.

    If a standard 10 round mag doesn't protrude very far out if the stock, wouldn't a 5 round mag lay flush with the stock?
