Best 25 round magazine?



Log in to see fewer ads
Looking to get a couple 25 round mags since I now live in a free state. Was looking at the Ruger BX-25, but I am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance!

As far as a 10/22 is concerned to me the BX 25 is your best choice if you need a 25 round magazine.

I use the Tactical Innovation mags.
I have aluminum and composite and I like the composite the best.

Are the composite ones adjustable also? Why do you like them better?


To the op, bx 25 s are fine , usually. For a stock 1022 , for plinking, and shooting up a bunch of cheap bulk ammo. Donít use the magazine as a fore grip! This will cause jams etc!

Donít get the two bx 25s stuck together , they are too heavy, and can cause feeding issues.

They usually are on sale someplace. Get the upc and go to gundeals . Com put in upc and this will show you the best deals.

If you have a take down 6 bx 25 s will fit in the bag.

Personally I like the little thingy that connects 3 bx 10 s together better, but it is bulkier.

With the introduction of the BX25 there really isn't any reason to look anywhere else.

Having said that I have a bunch of Butler Creek steel lip mags which have been 100% reliable at half the cost of the BX25s.

Gundeals.com

Has Ruger BX25 magazines in a 2 pack, 2 magazines, for about $31.00, or $15.50 each.

Just a heads up.

Talking BX 15

doesn't hang down as far as the BX 25, if you are shooting from a bench the BX 25 gets in the way, and if you rest it on the bench it causes mis feeding.

Ruger makes a version of the BX25 that is clear on one side.

I still prefer the factory 10 round mag, or the BX15 that comes with the Charger.

Well....

Ö..I am an old guy with a pant load of 22 ammo I got to burn up, so 25 round mag dumps are the order of the day. Many bullets = accuracy, sort of!!!

High Tower Armory mags

Greetings all! New member here, first post. Dilemma of hi-cap 10/22 mags?
My go-to hi-caps are High Tower Armorys (out of Rogers MN) 25 rounders. Easy to load (and clean), can be configured two different ways, multi colors(for the fashion conscious) and reliable. I have four 10/22s (in various flavors), and a customized Charger. Run them all with HTA mags. I like the BX25 and BX25x2 mags (a lot!) and own a bunch, but hate the routine breakdown and cleaning required occasionally(when my friend and I get together, we shoot a LOT!). High Tower Armory also sells IMHO the best bullpup stock for the 10/22, also. Love mine. Great customer service, too. Hope this helps.

The quick answer is whichever one you can get to function well in your particular gun. I've got BX's, old Butler Creeks, new Butler Creeks, and a couple Tactical innovations. One rifle runs near perfect with the BX and older Butler creeks, another runs pretty good with those. Another doesn't run well with any of them. The TI mags have been a complete bust for me. Adjusted on them for hours and have never gotten any reliable results from them. The newer Butler Creeks have been crap. The ones I bought 10+yrs ago actually aren't too bad. The BX mags seem to be the best in my opinion, though all of it is rifle specific. Some will work better than others. Kind of luck of the draw.
