Magazine - Difficult to Load



Log in to see fewer ads
Greetings,

I'm having difficulties loading a new SR22 magazine. Seems like the area right below the feed lips either need to be spread a little bit of filed down?

Has anyone had this issue before? Is this common? Should I try to file first or spread a little bit?

3 previous magazines were fine..

Contact Ruger and tell them about it. They should send you a magazine that works!!

Agreed, I would just contact Ruger and get it replaced. If you start filing on it or bending it they might not replace it.

Yea Ruger will send you a new one and usually a prepaid envelope with it to send the defective one back.

I recently found one of those in a twin magazine pack I bought online. I am getting in touch with Ruger to get it fixed. The rounds don't go in the magazine without great effort.

I had a different magazine issue a while back, called Ruger cs and they mailed me a replacement. They didn't even want the defective one back.

I just got my SR22 and bought 2 extra clips. All 4 were tight loading ammo. I simply pried the sides apart little by little until they all loaded easily. I've since fired over 100 rounds with no magazine malfunctions.

My SR-22 mags are ridiculously easy to load. Mine are only 10 rounder's due to living in a restrictive state. Not sure if that's normal capacity on the OEM mags or not? I just pull down on the 2 little tabs that stick out the sides of the follower with my thumb and forefinger and the rounds pretty my just drop right in.

I just bought a twin pack off ebay. The loading was "different" from what I would call "normal". Sort of a push down the rear of the round and then slide back. I can live with it IF they work in my SR-22.

Ditto. Are there mags that hold more than 10 rounds?

Just brought home a new SR22, both magazines are very difficult to load , it takes extreme pressure to get past the mag lips. I will give Ruger a call in the morning.

You're not trying to load them from the top through the lips, are you? Once you pull the thumb knob down, the rim goes in the notch, and you push the round backwards from the front.

I was wondering the same thing.

I have 12 SR-22 magazines, four of which have been converted to 15 rounders using TandemKross extensions, I can't think of any easier to load magazines, if yours load hard contact Ruger. I'll wager they make them good.

No at the notch the rim still does not fit into the mag, I took one mag apart and inserted a few rounds from the bottom and reassembled, the spring could not seat it, had to use force pushing up on the follower to get the round seated at the top. It is like the top of both mags were squeezed to tight. I did call Ruger and they have shipped two new magazines.
