Just gave this a shot (pun intended) with a really badly behaving mag. It would slam a bullet nose every few shots when I bought it. The 10/22 being used with it was virtually 100% reliable across multiple ammo types.

I wasn't thrilled about the idea of using a spent casing because it doesn't completely remove the slop. You still have a gap. Ended up turning a part from bearing bronze on a lathe that spins freely with no slop, and also rides against the sides of the mag with about 0.005" of play just for insurance against binding.

Initial hand cycling a mag resulted in no failures and no dented noses. Prior function would jam every 3-5 rounds and dent virtually bullet nose. Fired four mags through it on the range this afternoon. Zero failures, the mag kept up with me unloading as fast as I could pull the trigger (which is light and crisp with very little takeup or after travel). So that's 125 rounds with a 0% fail rate.

No lubricant was added to the spring, unless finger grease counts.



Thanks, Buck22!

You should make and sell those to us.

You guys should get lathes.

Seriously though, this would probably be like a $10 part. If there's interest I could run a batch...

I would be down for 2. I just want BX-25's that work properly! I did the spent casing fix, and it didn't correct the issues with my two BX-25's. For now I'm not even using them, since my HC3R's are running flawlessly.

Have you made a drawing and/or dimensions of the bushing you'd be willing to share?

No, its really a pretty simple part. Quality is in craftsmanship, not design in this instance.

I understand.

I've tried the fix using a spent .22 but I prefer a bit more elegance in a fix. That's not to diminish the spent case fix. It's discovery and simplicity is terrific.

Thanks for the post Buck.
I just gave this a try using 2 mags with mixed results. One mag had a case fit flush to the spool and one has a case fit a little proud of the spool.
The proud mag would not even load a accept a single round on the 1st try. A few passes on some 120 grit was all it took to get the mag loaded with 25 rounds. So far not one single FTF for 3 mags now. What a difference!
The flush cased spool still has FTF issues for now. Thinking to mike the proud case and try again with a taller case in the flush cased mag. It could be that some mags need a little more tinkering.
