"I bought one of these and several other high capacity mags soon after the ban lifted, and this is the only one has never jammed. It works as good as the factory clips and is well worth the extra cost. Also, it will actually fit 26rds."

"I have had my current mag about a year, and i don't think i can count how many rounds i have shot through it,and you wouldn't believe the stuff that been spilled down this mag, gun scrubber(which seems to eat away at some plastics), beer, grape juice, and lots of weird gun oils that always seem to find this mag, and it still feeds like it was new! I think this is sufficient proof that this one of the most durable mags, and is well worth the money."

"The first time I tried these mags, I was disappointed because the bolt kept catching/jamming upon bolt return on my 10/22. The round being brought into battery kept getting caught on the front of the magazine. I first blamed the magazine, but it later occurred to me that maybe it was the rounds I was using. It was also the first time I was trying the Remington Golden bullets; I usually use the Federal bulk pack for range work.Sure enough, the next time I went to the range, I used the Federal bulk pack and CCI and not a single hiccup. The Mags performed flawlessly. I filled them to their max and didn't experience a single problem even after 200 rounds or so.Lessoned learned, only try one new thing at a time. As soon as CTD restocks them, I'm going to order two more. Great stuff."

"these are really good clips. I tried a ramline in my 10/22, and that was a joke, but somebody told me about the Butler Creek steel lips magazines, so I decided to give it a try. I was quite impressed. the first time I tried it, the magazine spring tension was a little high, and it jammed a few times. so I took it home, loaded it up and let it sit for about 24 hours before I tried it again, and that did the trick, not another jam since."

"Don't even think of wasting your time getting plastic lipped mags for your 10/22. Checked out the market first and am so glad I did, this mag with steel lips has never let me down. it is completely worth every penny.Plus it makes the 10/22 look pretty bad ass."

"This is a great mag i bought it a year ago and have put many rounds through it, and it works just a good as the factory 10 rnd mag. I always keep loaded as i live on a farm and there are always things to shoot and the springs have not failed yet. I am looking into getting another and i recommend this clip, it is great!"

"I picked one of these up after having problems with every other mag I purchased. This thing WORKS. I know that's a goofy thing to get excited about, but I'm sure you are familiar with the frustration of hunting down a magazine that works well, if at all, and if you're not, then let me save you a lot of trouble. BUY THIS ONE. It behaved perfectly right out of the bag and I had 1, count them : 1 jam in 1100 rounds. It even works with my loader. Couldn't be happier. I'll be picking up 2 more soon. Why can't anyone else make mags this well (**cough cough promag, take a hint cough cough **)."

"I ordered two of these 25 round magazines and found them to be pretty good performers....as long as I didn't load all 25 rounds in. 22 or 23 rounds in the mag performs flawlessly in my tricked out 10/22 but when I load them fully, I get jams for the first three or four rounds. But if I download them to 22 rounds, they work as fast as I can pull the trigger. Maybe they need more \"break in\" time fully loaded and I have only tried them on one range session with one type of ammunition. Still, these perform much better than any other high capacity magazine I have tried for the 10/22 platform. I would recommend these to anyone looking for at least 20 rounds of non stop shooting in a 10/22."

"I own 4 of these. I rarely if ever have jams. Most of the jams I do get are related to the gun getting dirty after 2000+ rounds fired in one session and inferior dirty ammo used. I highly reccomend these magazines to everyone."

"great reliability .got to have a high cap mag to go along side my ruger factory model 9 shot rotary mag.It doesnt fit as snugly as the ruger factory mag but still fits as good or better than any mags not made by ruger.Even though its more expensive than than the hot lips version the steel will last as long as you have ammunition."

"This a great mag, apart from some minor jamming I have had no problems with it. It loads easily, and is short enough that I can still use my bipod without any problems."

"When I first got mine I fully loaded it and manually emptied it with the bolt and it jammed a couple times. I fed it another 5 times or so and it fed perfectly down to the last one. I have yet to actually fire my Ruger with it, but I have emptied it manually as fast as I could and encountered no problems. Compared to an original 10 round mag there is about the thickness of a dime's worth of material missing from the front of it, so there is a little bit of forward/backwards play in the rifle but it doesn't effect it's performance. I plan on getting a few more of these!"

"Look at your magazine. The round button-like protrusion on the front of the mag has to go into a hole in the receiver for the mag to be held securely. If you remove the stock before you place the magazine into the receiver you can actually see how the little nub on the mag is supposed to rest in the hole. Butler Creek's magazines are a little wider than the 10 round rotary mags so you may need to sand the inside walls of the stock just where the mag comes in contact with them. This will allow you to push the magazine's nub into the hole when you insert the mag into the rifle. Don't sand too much though or the magazine will wobble perpendicularly to the barrel."

"I have purchased three different mags over the last month trying to find the best match for my Ruger 10/22. I dry cycled all three magazines over five times each and this one never jammed. the other two (Butler Creek Hot Lips) jammed three or more times through each cycle. Needless to say, the other two were returned and I purchased two more steel lip mags for my 10/22. I have put about 250 rounds through the magazines and only one jam so far. By Far this is my Best Recommendation."

"In the life of my 10/22, which I have had since I was 16. I am now 38. I have used nothing but the Butler Creek 25 round mags and the original 10 rnd mag. I used to go through a brick of ammo every weekend using these mags. I still have 2 that are over 20 years old, and they still function flawlessly. I only use CCI Mini Mags or Stinger in them, they seem to work the best with this particular weapon. The two mags I currently still have, have cycled over 1000 rounds each with very minimal problems, usually from the weapon being fouled with powder residue from too many rounds fired at one time. The only issue I have had with these is when the plastic cracks from me being a little too hard on them, oops banged it on the rocks again. A good weapon can take abuse. This weapon has been abused and the mags worth every penny spent and much more. Have never had an issue with melting feed lips, just powder build up."

"went ahead and spent the extra cash for the steel lips - went to the range, no jams at all, worked just fine,--- the smoke color makes it look a little like a toy, but a little tape, a light sanding, a little paint makes this look more like a rifle magazine and less like a toy --- but the most important part is that it works just fine."

"recd 2 - both were extremely loose fitting in the gun. very poor feeding; almost every other round jammed. pressing forward against the back of the mag helped but then the mag itself just fell out of the rifle. hard to imagine so many good writeups when my experience proved them to be useless. i used the stock mag w/no issue as a control."

"I bought 2 of these and ran about 200 rounds through each of them. Both magazines seem to jam 1 or 2 times within the first 7 or 8 rounds, but will run through the rest without problems. I was using really cheap ammo, and some people have remarked that it makes a big difference on these clips, so I'll give it another shot with some better ammo."

"I bought 3 mags, because I wanted steel lips not plastic, (the plastic do wear out prematurally). So, I paid more and got crap. Two of them can't hold the last 3 or 4 cartridges...and I haven't even shot them yet, the 3rd one I sent back, because the spring was too weak to push up the 22LR cartridge. I just got a \"new one\" back in exchange for the bad one, and it won't hold the last 3-4 cartridges either. Well, I'm going to go shoot them and see what happens after 100 rounds per magazine, but it looks like Butler Creek has a major problem for their so called top of the line mags. If they don't function in the field, then they go back for a money refund!"

"I purchased 2 of these along with 2 Mag Eagle 10/22 30 round mags. I have used this mag in an older Ruger 10/22 and a Brand new Ruger. In both the mag has slop in its fitment. Once locked in it can slide forward and back a little. I have found that if slid forward it tends to cause more Jams & Failure to Loads, slid back it performs near flawless. With that in mind as long as it is loaded and slid back it works great. But compared against the Mag Eagle 30 rounders which perform near flawlessly without the wiggling they are not near as good, especially for the price difference. The only pro over the 30 rounders is the steel lips which will probably hold up longer. If I buy more mags I will probably skip these, 2 is enough. Go with the 30 rounders."

"I have 2 of these magazines for my 10/22. They both work very well, no jams or misfires, aside from the usual .22 rimfire silliness. They being able to lock together is a nice feature as well. The only reason I put 4 bullets is that I've fed ~300 rounds through them, and already I can see some wear damage. Somewhat disappointing, but also, it is plastic. I would recommend them any day!"

"If you only load 10 rounds in, this mag is great.... If I loaded more than 15-16 rounds, it would not feed at all. The spring pressure was a bit weak along with the rounds sticking in the mag somehow"

"I'm a high volume shooter and I'd recomened the steel lips over the plastic lips any day. Ive put over 1,000 rounds though this clip in about 3 weeks and it still is firing away flawlessly. The only time I have ever had it jam on me is when the shell was not put in at the correct angle. Ha my only complaint for this mag is that its plastic and I'd recommend not dropping it."

"I got some and they jammed a lot. Then I0 used some K and N air filter oil and they have never jammed again. They work so much better since I oiled then. Use a light weight oil like the K&N air filter oil got it at Napa. I shot just about 1800 to 2000 round and jamed maybe 2 times toward the end. I think the gun was getting a little dirty. I need to clean it."

"I was skeptical but this mag loaded fine, fed fine and locked in fine no problems and high quality. I love the smoked look as opposed to clear or black. It allows me to see how many rounds I got left at a glance, looks cool and is different than standard mags. This was also $8 cheaper than other places I shopped. Thanks CTD!"

"I bought two of these clips after trying many others. Both clips worked will in my new stainless Ruger. The only problem I had was the front to rear fit is a bit short. They must be seated to the front of the rifle to work properly. I am going to add a small bead of epoxy to the rear of the clips which I am sure will make them both flawless. Other than that they are very will made and feed well even with cheap ammunition. I have put 500 rounds through both and they don't jam or give any problems so long as they are fully seated forward in the rifle. Don't waste your money on the cheap ones, I bought quite a number of them and none of them worked. These aren't perfect but they can be with a little work and at least they work."

"I got two of these for my brand new Ruger 10/22. I have never used the standard 10 mag, just the 25'ers. First problem at the range, seating the mags. I was having feed problems till I noticed the mags were not all the way forward. These mags are not the same front to back dimensions as the factory 10 round...wtf? also, the spring is weak and I will have to lube it as others have done. To fix, I drilled a small hole in the lower left corner of the rear of the mag and installed a small stainless button head screw. I took a pic if you want to copy and fix yours from having front to back sloppiness."

"Should have listened to NutNFancy on You Tube and got the Tactical Inovations mag. I loaded the mag with 10 rds and after firing the first round I had a FTF. I have two original 10rd mags and have never had a FTF. I then reseeded the mag and fired another round, then again FTF. Something brand new should not malfunction this badly. Next time I'll just spend the money and get the good stuff."

I have not yet had any problems after fixing the loose fit. I really like these magazines. I wish I had bought them sooner instead of the other crap I bought that didn't work. If they get the fit right on the next ones I buy they will get five bullets from me! Very good buy for the money!"

"I finally got to try out my new Ruger 10/22 rifle today. I loaded 25 rounds of Remington into my Butler Creek magazine and all 25 rounds fired without any trouble at all. Next, I tried the factory 10 round drum magazine and I has one misfeed. After several hundred rounds through the Butler Creek, I only had a handful of rounds not cycle correctly; very likely an ammo issue. Shooting very quickly rendered one stove pipe. I found 25 rounds to be plenty of rounds to shoot at one time and it's great convenience not having to load the rounds frequently as with the stock magazine. In all, this is a great quality magazine that I would rely upon and recommend to a friend."

"I really would have given this 4 stars when I bought it but after using it several times, I've had some mis-feeds (could have been the ammo I suppose, but the really good one's feed crap too). It also wiggles in my 10/22 so when it doesn't fit tight it's not a good thing. I bought these before Ruger came out with their own 25 round clips. I'll probably try those and see if they're better."

"This is a superb magazine. I have run several of the cheaper types of ammunition in it with little problem. Recently ran 200 rounds of the standard velocity CCI, which the talking heads claimed would not work and did not have a single jam. The worst ammunition in it was the Remington silver bullet"
