My wife bought my father-in-law one of these 50 round drums by ProMag for his new 10/22. He is out of town right now so I was trying it out and it would not feed at all. Maybe one round then the next would jam. I was looking around google and saw that some people had done some work on them to make them work reliably. Do any of you know what work is done? Or should I just call ProMag and get a new one? Help me out. He would really like it if it worked well.

Thanks

The only way to make a Promag absolutely reliable is to swap it out for another brand, IME.

switch it out for a blackdog machine 50rd drum....

I avoided pro-mag specifically because of the problems.


as to solving your problems with the drum, try buying some .22 snap caps and watch closely on how the drum behaves in the gun and go from there.

The ProMag drum is more trouble than it's worth and I've gone through two BlackDog drums that aren't much better. Sticking to TI 25rd magazines.

I actually have the magazine in my possession and the cloest Cabela's store is +2,000 miles away in Seattle. Any suggestions with what I can do with what I have now?

Coffee table coaster? :confused: Dog chew toy?

Seriously, the only ProMag I have is for a Sig P6. In other words, for a single-stack 9mm. They even managed to mess that up. :rolleyes:

By far the worse magazine I have had the displeasure of trying. Mine was hard to load (it makes every other magazine look easy!), unreliable, had a poor design, and poor workmanship. I recommend using it for target practice...after getting a few functional magazines. ;)

I fail to understand how Pro-Mag stays in business!

I've got two of the Black Dog AR drums. Easy to load and they work quite well in on of our SIG 522 and Spikes Tactical dedicated .22 upper, but the other SIG 522 doessn't quite close the bolt all the way all the time with one of the drums causing misfires (the rounds all go the second time).

Save yourself the headache and junk it.

If you must try, powder it up with graphite and remove any burrs that you can find in it.
