Are there any bad 10/22 magazines?

    Trying to get some smaller/ish things for my christmas list. I got a 10/22, sitting in the box until Christmas. I'm thinking I could add magazines to my list. I'm sure I'm fine going to factory magazines, but what about Butler Creek, ProMag, and Champion? I'm not sure if people are willing to special order online. I'm hoping someone here is a 10/22 master and can give me a very quick run through.

    Thanks,

    I'm master of nothing but Ram-Line suck. I'd give 'em to you but even I'm not that mean.

    Promags are garbage in my experience. The Butler Creek mags are hit and miss. They fit loose in the magwell and if not in the proper position can cause malfunctions. I have 3 of the steel lip versions and even they can be finicky.

    I would just stick to the Ruger BX mags. I have several and they work great for me in both of my 10/22s.

    I have never had a Ruger BX mag work in any of the 10/22s I own.( and I own a few)

    Butler Creek Steel Lips have been 100% for me.

    I have 2 Tactical Innovations Ti25 all metal magazines that work great, but are no longer made( my guess is they were very expensive )

    You can't go wrong with the Ruger 10 round mags. If you want more capacity, it seems to be hit and miss with most brands, but I think you have the best odds sticking with Ruger mags. My 10/22 has no problem with the Ruger 10, 15, and 25 round mags. YMMV

    Eagle mags are the biggest hunks of shit ever made.
    I’d take a Ram-Line over an Eagle any day.
    You can not go wrong with Butler Creek.

    I think it is ultimately a fit issue. You'll see a pattern in the replies here. For my two 10/22's, they both like the Ruger BX mags and hate the Butler Creek steel lips.
