BX25 mag ... yea or nay



Log in to see fewer ads
are the BX25 mags reliable ?

Or am I better off with multiple 10 round mags.

Thanks for your comments

Exactly what Toomany22s said. They work very well you can't hold on them while you shoot though.

Yea, just clean them every ounce in a great while. You'll know when.

Nay, if your talking 17hm2 in them. The tapered neck makes both the bx15 and bx25 not reliable.

I have two BX-25 magazines. No issues with either one so far, but I donít load 25 rounds in them, usually 20-23.

Not an issue with mine. Depends on what you are going to do. Mine is a little long when bench rest shooting, but still works if I position the front rest leg slightly to the side.

The "Fix"... I do it to all mine.. can't hurt.. seems to help.

They need to hang free/no pressure and as stated above cannot hold them as you shoot...

I did that to mine too, and I use Lemon Pledge to slick up the guide rails the follower contacts, it has wax and silicone in it.

I say stick with the 10 rounders for shooting off the bench or hunting. The 25's are ok for plinking but can be problematic. If you are going to use 25's stick with Ruger brand BX-25.

I did the 22 shel case mod to both of my 25's and a 15. They still were problematic with a JWah bolt. I swapped the stock bolt I. And they worked much better. Need to try the JWH bolt again.

I have had no issues. Takes a long time to load them so I don't use them as much as I thought I would.

I have had good luck with the factory 10 rounders, BX-25s and Steel Lips highcaps. The Hot Lips mags worked well for a while, but the red plastic feed lips would get picky after a bit a wear.

Not very reliable. IMO it's because of all the weight pulling down at an angle causing them not to feed correctly.
