    I apologize if this concern has been raised already.

    I would imagine this is something that is on a lot of shooter's minds: Does anyone know if there are any specific high-quality hi-capacity magazines that will be available for the 10/22 after this silly AWB has deceased? Do any companies have any plans to make 30, 40, or 50 rd banana mags with steel lips, etc?

    Butler Creek still manufactures the 25-round Steel Lips and Hot Lips magazines for the Canadian Market. I'd imagine the market can and will be flooded by these excellent magazines on TUESDAY. Good luck.

    Isn't Mitchell still in business? They made a great 50 round teardrop mag for the 10/22, steel lips, wind up belt, easy to load, I got great feeding from it....I heard they were made for the Canadians too....

    Well, now I can get my pre-ban Butler Creeks out of the drawer and use them again. For a while there they were too valuable to take to the range.:D Now that I'll be able to replace them if they break, I'll feel better about having hi-cap fun.

    I've always had good luck with the RamLine mags. I like using them in my 77/22 as well. With 30 rounds in a bolt gun you can keep shooting for what seems a long time. Never had any luck with the Mitchell 50 rounder that greg531 spoke of. Mine always jammed. Ended up giving it to a friend.

    I've got a 50 rounder

    color me unimpressed...

    Unless there is a tool to wind it, it stinks! I tried using the cover to wind it but that doesn't work too well. It also likes to jam frequently...

    Am I doing something wrong?
    Anyway, can't wait for the prices to vcome down on hi-caps for ruger either!

    Am I the only one who likes 10 rounders for the 10-22? :confused:

    Good information. Thanks.

    The 10 rounders are boring, but they are certainly reliable. :)

    carpetbagger, I like the 10-rounders because they fit flush. I would also like higher round count for the plinking fun factor and am hopingto see the price go down.

    I might pay a premium for a QUALITY HI-CAP mag, but is there such a critter?

    The factory 10-rounders work great, but I hear lots of complaints about the aftermarket mags.

    Has anyone found a hi-cap mag that works on par with factory mags?

    I've had good luck with the Butler Creek Steel Lips hi-caps. The only PITA is laoding them without one of those special tools. It can get tedious and is hard on the fingers after a bit.

    Now I'm looking forward to getting them out more often, since it appears that I'll be able to replace one if it breaks or wears out.

    I've a bunch of Ramline 30s but can't wait to get some Mitchell teardrops. They're the best.

    For my accurized 10/22s I like to use the 10 (and 9 for the .17HMR convert) mags when I shoot for groups. For my every day plinkers, I like to use the hi-caps.

    On the other side of the coin, I'll look forward to finding 10-rounders in the bargain bins at stores. Not planning on paying $12 and up for those suckers any more. Bill "no honest man needs more than 10 rounds" Ruger will officially assume room temperature Monday.

    yeah i like the 10-rounders. Friend of mine has a Marlin 25 and the factory 7-rounders stick out noticably, ruins the look of an otherwise handsome gun.

    I tried a couple of the hi caps, and they would not feed reliably. Now I just carry a pocket full of ten rounders, and I have an extended mag release on my rifle.

    Butler creek makes the best 25 rounders

    I have no jams unless the action is dirty (gun's fault& mine for not cleaning)

    they are pretty durable and last alot longer than ram line junk. They also snap together for fast mag changes. neat-o! I love'em!

    If anyone finds a place to buy them at NEW prices, please post a link. This is the one thing I want to buy in high cap that I don't have.

    I've got several 10 round ruger mags for my 10/22 - Use them for hunting and competition shooting. BUT for just plain fun plinking I like my B.C. 25 round. Its the only hi capacity mag I've got for it and have had it for the entire 10 year ban. It's had a lot of rounds thru it but doesn't show any wear!
