"I have owned two of these mags for over 10 years and they still work fine.They hardly ever hang up even after thousands of rounds. Easy to load withButler Creek loader."

"I have one of these clips I bought just recently. They are horible and jam up almost every other shot you fire for the first 10 rounds. They are also extreamly hard 2 load, unless you want to spend more money on a clip loader for a crapy clip."

"I had my clip for a little over a year than i had to throw it away cause the lips on it wore down and the bullets wouldn't stay in anymore my opinion is it works just as good as the metal lips but it wont take years of use it will eventually were down but it is a dam good clip"

"I took two of these mags to the range today for only the second time. I experienced mulitple failures to feed out of both magazines. I verified the rifle by using the factory mags which performed without fail. Each of these mags probably had less that 150 rounds through it. In both caes, the magazines did not seat cleanly and required a fair bit of manipulation to get them to seat at all. Even after seating, the mags would still wiggle quite a bit. The only redeaming quality of these magazines is their price."

"I recently purchased 2 of the \"HOT LIPS\" by Butler Creek. I expected them too work fine but they did not. They will fire 2 or 3 times then jam. I'm not really sure why they just do. They don't fit quite right and are kinda cheap in quality. I guess its just luck of the draw weather or not u get one that works right or not. Some people talk about how they love them cause they work so good. I just wish mine worked at all. My gun is new and very clean so I'm not really sure why they don't work. The factory clips work fine in this gun. So just a warning they might not work for you. I would go with the \"Steel Lips\" instead."

"I purchased two of the 25 round clear Butler Creek Hot Lips magazines (from here) in April 2008. Neither of the mags would work in my new (unmodified) Ruger 10/22. They wobbled front to back and the shells would jam. They had a lot of plastic mold flashing but that was minor when the overall size is wrong. They are going into the trash. I expected better from Butler Creek."

"I bought one of these and a brand new Ruger 10/22 and the factory clip snaps in and fits snuggly. This clip wobbles around and doesn't fit correctly. When you put it in it's hard to be sure that the clip is seated properly in the gun. I haven't fired the gun yet but I can already tell there's going to be feed problems because the plastic looks flimsy and the spring seems to not be of high quality. Overall not quality at all. I would be willing to pay more for metal banana clips if it meant they would be better quality. These plastic clips are a joke."

"Don't waste your money. It wont feed if you fully load it. It works great if you only load 5 rounds!"

"i bought 4 of these 3 years ago and they feed great. i use the cheapest federal ammo i can find and have a misfeed maybe once per full mag. my experiance with the eagle's were the opposite of the other reviewers. with the same ammo from the same box i got stove pipes every 3-4 rnds with the eagles. after reading the reviews on the butler creek and the eagles it seems unfortunatley that it's a crap shoot with either one."

"What do ya know. Another 10/22 mag that won't frigin feed worth a damn! I swear, i would be willing to spend 50 bucks a pop if some jackhole would design a frickin mag that works!"

"I bought 2 clear ones because I thought the quality control would be more thorough and if 1 failed, the other *should* be OK...I know a bad mag when I seat one in my rifle- these are NOT bad mags- in fact after shooting over 125 rounds through both, I had 2 stovepipes on each... but, every.bullet.fed.perfectly- not one failed to feed at all. I think the stove-piping had little to do with the mags themselves: it was a random occurrence at various places in the bullet order.They are loose, but there is a way they like to seat and once there, they won't come out of the setting unless hit hard enough to make the rifle fire. Wanna talk about loose?- put your factory mag in there and give it a shake... you can almost make a percussive instrument with it. The only thing I didn't like about them was the clear/red color. Made my 10/22 with a Tapco T6 look like an airsoft gun.A little masking tape and a can of Rust-Oleum (get the heat-proof stuff (the kind for grills) it will not glare and it adheres to the plastic better). Get creative with the tape: I can see the front and back of the bullets as to identify and count them in the mag.Bad reviews? I wish I had a Butler Creek mag for every bad review in here- they work PERFECTLY for me!"

"It is funny to see such mixed reviews. I have three of these and they work really well. Maybe one jam every three mag fulls.A while ago, I even used one of those GAT triggers with these mags. Buzzed through 25 rounds at a time with few issues.I guess it is hit or miss."

"well i just recently purchased a brand new 10/22 and these magazines; I have to say the quality lacks something to be desired. First the magazine i had to work the spring because if you fully loaded it was like the spring wasnt strong enough to feed the bullets. Second it was very loose when fed into the gun the magazine had a lot of play in it, it just seated really loose. Lastly if you loaded it fully it jammed everytime on me, but if i only fed about 10-15 rounds it seemed to work better, as in it only jammed every other clip. Recommend trying another brand."

"As with any Magazine, It did not function if it was fully loaded at first, but after 50 rounds through, it worked fine ever since. lubricate it, and it will not fail, (provided your ammo is good, as in not .22 Thunderbolt)"

"I have 12 of these and all work flawlessly. I'm not sure why others would'nt have the same luck. Perhaps the shape and age of the mechanical workings of the rifle itself? Though my 10/22 is 25 years old and has a bit of slop. I use all different types of ammo too with no difference."

"I just recently bought one of these and decided to try it out. It worked fine when i shot a few times. I emptied the clip quit a few times and had no problems. I decided then to empty the whole mag. Well the plastic feeding lips couldnt take the heat and melted. So now it only works for five rounds or so then jams EVERYOTHER ROUND. So if you need a mag spend an extra 10 15 dollars and get one with steel feeding lips"

"I OWN ABOUT 20 OF THESE. I USE THEM WITH MY 10/22'S, AND ALSO WITH MY FULL AUTO MAC 9-11 WITH A .22 CONVERTER - THEY WORK FLAWLESSLY - AND THAT'S SAYING A LOT ESPECIALLY WITH THE FULL AUTO CONVERTER ON THE MAC 9-11! MAKE SURE YOU ALSO GET THE MAG FILLER - WHEN DUMPING LOTS OF LEAD DOWN RANGE, FILLING THESE MAGS WITH 25 ROUNDS EACH CAN GET TO BE A PAIN. REGARDING \"MELTING\" - I AM NOT QUESTIONING THE INTEGRITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL WITH THE PROBLEM, BUT I HAVEN'T HAD ANY SIGNS OF MELTING EVEN WHEN DUMPING 3-4 MAGS ON FULL AUTO WITHOUT LETTING UP EXCEPT FOR MAG CHANGES! BY THE WAY, WHAT A BLAST!"

"for the price there ok, but they did not fit my 1022 well, the were loose and the springs seemed a little weak. the plastic lips do melt when gun heats up"

"took it to the range today, i wasnt expecting much due to all of the bad reviews. wiggles in the rifle more than i like but its not a big deal. the first load worked flawlessly, the second had one double feed which required me to remove the magazine to clear it, the third worked flawlessly. my .22 is for fun and a few malfunctions won't spoil my day. i will try to find a steel lipped one, they were out of stock at my store."

"I purchased one of the \"Butler Creek Hot-Lips 25 round magazines\" recently. I have a very new 10/22. Using Remington golden bullets, I never get jams using the factory magazine. With the 25-rounder, however, it seems that if you load more than about 15 rounds it jams too frequently, maybe even every-other shot. Overall, I'm dissappointed, and wish that I would have just bought another Ruger mag instead."

"I recently bought this magazine and used it with my brand new 10/22 while shooting CCI blazers and Winchester hollow points. It performed well, but jammed a few times. Ruger factory mags are better."

"I rated this magazine 2 bullets because that is pretty much all you can shoot without it causing a jam.. dissapointing. i just bought a ruger 10/22 about a week or 2 ago, and i finally got time to go out to the range. this magazine sucks. I agree with the factory ruger 10 rd. mag. i didnt fail me once. i will for sure be buying more factory mags. im not even going to waste my time nor money on other aftermarket magazines.."

"With my experiance with this product I found that the better the ammunition the better the mag. I think most all the reviews are correct but the ones that were dissapointed were using cheap (price and quality) ammunition. The mag will only work with 15 or less Federal cartriges, but 25 with CCI blazer. If it doesn't work for you get some better ammo!"

"I got these expecting to have much more fun out at the shooting range. Boy, was I wrong. They jammed nearly every other round, and only once out of 500 rounds did i actually make it through a full magazine without a jam or failure to feed. I used both bulk bargain ammo and CCI Mini mags and nothing worked well. I would definitely not recommend these to anyone. I have put many rounds through the factory mag and that works flawlessly. Avoid these hot lips magazines."

"I bought one of these with my brand new 10/22, and for the first 25 rounds, it worked flawlessly. After that the plastic lips started causing misfeeds and jams after the initial load. Not worth 5 dollars."

"I bought two of these awhile ago and after 250+ rounds through each, I can't say I've ever had any noticeable feeding problems.However, the plastic lips are harder to clean and WILL wear much quicker than the steel lip mags (unless stored in a humid climate perhaps). This is a good product, but if you choose this over the steel lip version, you'll have to replace the mags more often, which counterbalances their cheaper price."
– Decent, but GET THE STEEL LIP ONES INSTEAD!!

"I have 3 of these and absolutely love them. I can shoot all 25 of them as fast as I can pull the trigger and they never jam or anything. I had had mine for about a year and still work awesome. Definitely good buy for the price!"

"Terrible magazines. The only times they reliably work are with a dozen rounds or less. With more rounds, they fail to feed or cause jams. I bought two and both function--or more appropriately, fail to function--in the same way."

"They need a negative bullet to truly rate this mag. I took it to the range and right out of the plastic bag. I experienced a jam every three or four shots when it was full. I finally got the mag to cycle through twelve rounds but I had to take it very slow to give the mag time to keep up. The factory mag was great but it only holds 10 shots. I was mad that I had purchased 2 of these. I am glad I wasn't depending on it to shoot properly because it won't."

"My rating is inaccurate, should be a zero. I bought two of these and spent more time clearing jams than shooting. These magazines are garbage."
