I've really enjoyed shooting my 10/22, so I've decided to stock up on some mags and ammo for it. It will save me a lot of money on 5.56, I hope... I got a second BX-25 recently (just before extreme panic) and decided I'd like another, but the best deal I can find now is $46.99 from a no name site. However, Cabela's has the Ruger 10/22 BX25-2 50 Round Magazine for $64.99. It's backordered for one to two weeks. As long as it shows in the next couple of months, I'll be happy based on what I'm seeing elsewhere. They are also running a $20 off $150.00 order through January 2, 2013.

While they are hard to find these mags normally sell for 29 bucks... if you're ok with the price gouging then go for it. I for one, am not. :)

So use a different mag while shooting prone? I think it's nice that Ruger is giving us a reliable 50 round option.

during the last high cap ban people here were going to Canada and buying the 10/22 mags for cheap

I wish I had held off on the 50 rounder. I went to Sportsman's Warehouse today and they had like 15 BX-25s on the rack for $29.99. That's after I saw one guy grab 6 of them. I've already got two myself and with the 50 rounder on it's way, I decided I didn't need any more. I'll probably regret that decision later....

I guess "cheap" is relative. In Canada the Butler Creek 25 round mags were still $25-30 over 10 years ago. Don't ask me how I know...

I remember seeing Canadians talk about BX-25's are banned in Canada because they can be used in the Ruger Charger pistol, and high capacity pistol magazines are banned.

Talked about here;

Ruger put a cover (cap) on the one you are not using.
You will have to remove the cap whenever you turn the mag over
but this will help keep dirt and such out of it.

I just bought a Hot lips Metal, for $24.95 at Bass Pro. Tape two together and save $15.

Do you think you will remember to change the mag before you go to prone, maybe in a hurry?




Are you expecting to be in a tactical situation, busting caps in tangos with your 10/22?

I've never had to go prone in a hurry on the ground squirrels or bunny rabbits.

That's what I was thinking. I'd go to my Marlin lever-gun in .44 Rem Mag before I went to anything in .22LR unless I had a .22LR gatling gun. Then again, that would be permanently mounted on something.

Cabelas just got a shipment of the BX25-2 magazines. I ordered on in December and one at the beginning of January. They're filling my first order today. I don't even own a 10/22. Thinking about using it as a barter item for .22 LR ammo.

Forgot to mention, the BX25-2 comes with a dust cover for the end that's hanging down "in the dirt".

It's not a 50 round option it's 2 25 round mags glued together.... Thank you Ruger but I can glue my own mags together.

Got a notification from Cabela's this morning that the estimated date is now February 25, 2013. Like someone else pointed out, they have no idea when or if they'll actually show up.

I picked up a couple of these from CDNN last week. I don't remember what the exact total was but I think it was like $65/mag. The downside I found to this mag is its 1 magazine not 2 as it kinda looks like.. You cannot separate them as you would 2-bx25 mags tacked together. Seemed like a good deal if it was 2x mags but being one PITA mag it wasn't that great of a purchase. I did order some steel lip mags from someone yesterday that listed them in stock so well see where that goes.
