    Nice rifle!

    Though I will admit that when I first saw the above image, and I'm sure it's just due to the angle that the photo was taken, it appeared as if the rifle's reciever was made out of light gray Lego's ;)

    You are not the first to say that...lol Plans are to get an aftermarket stock as well as a stainless barrel and then change some things. I re did that stock myself and it turned out very nice. So far I have done 3 stocks and they make the guns look so much better and different.

    Just bought 2 of these at the LGS. Good to know they are working well.

    I did watch a video about them before I purchased them that the guy said he had a couple feed issues with his. He felt he remedied the issues by loading and unloading them 2-3 times before using them to perhaps mag springs and seat them so feed issues would be better.I did the same thing 3 times and I have not had any issues at all with mine.

    In my experience of 50+ years of shooting, nothing works 100% 100% of the time. My 5 BX25s work 98% of the time in my half a dozen 10/22s from different eras. Occasionally, due to temperature, weather, ammo, phases of the moon, or whatever I will get a malfunction in one of my rifles but that's no big deal. Nothing works 100% 100% of the time.

    I have four BX-25 mags and they work in all three on my 10-22's. One is completely stock and the other two are moded. They run cheap and expensive ammo. My 10-22's like cheap ammo the best. I also have the little 10 rounders and they work great also.

    I think you'll have a few blips with dirty 22 ammo so but nothing to talk about.

    I guess I am impressed at just how many people own the Ruger 10/22's I ended up modding my original gun and with the parts left over,I now have a second(which I plan to mod up a little bit).I also had in the back of my gun safe a Marlin model 60 that I really didn't even know I had. It was my dad's and I never even shot it. It's a semi auto similar to the 10/22 but alot less pieces out there to mod it,so I'll let it alone.

    Thank you. Mine is circa 2001, so its good to know these can reliably work across many production years

    Ruger mags in a Ruger are good to go.
