I recently found an ad for 30 round, Eagle brand mags for the 10/22. They are $10 a piece. Are eagle mags any good? worth $10?

i'd try looking in The Armory, 10/22 forum
ETA 10/22 Forum
But in a nutshell they are better than ramline but still dont work that great for most people

Eagle 30rder's for $10? Yes they would be a good buy, I wouldn't hesitate.

As back ups maybe for resell in 20 years when you cant get hicaps!

I have never had any luck with eagle mags. In ARs, Rems or 10/22s, they have all failed in some way. The price alone is not enough for me to buy any. I would rather add a few bucks and buy a BC mag that I know will work.

If eagle mags were as good as the others, the prices would not be dropping. Take cost out of the picture and just choose the mag that works best.

Remember, if you cant sell quality, lower your prices and sell quantity

I just got some of the mags from CDNN today for $9.99 each. They changed them a little bit. There is no longer a magazine release on the back of the mag (it never worked anyways). They all seem to fit and lock in fine. I loaded them all up and fed the rounds through the gun manualy and they didnt have one misfeed.

The only problem i have is that i couldnt use my buttler creek mag loader on any of them. The mag loader works perfectly fine on my factory mags and my 2 preban eagle mags but not on the new ones. I think i may just have to shoot them a bit and break them in, the rounds arnt being pushed all the way back into the mag with the loader. Not a big deal.

I am gonna be heading out to the range sunday more than likely so I will let everyone know how they function.

All the mags worked perfectly. No misfeeds or any magazine related problems. I would say pick a few up. They are worth it and are easier to clean if they get dirty.

I just picked up 6 of them at $10 from Copes Dist.

I've never had any luck with American Eagle or Jamline.

ButlerCreek works best for me.

They work ok. For $10 how can you go wrong

Don't leave them loaded for extended periods of time. I've had a few that the feedlips gave way while just sitting, spewing all 30rnds out like a fountain. Granted, they had been loaded for ~ 1/2 year or so.

well for $10, if they dont feed or function, they make expensive targets

midwayusa has butler creek 25 rnd mags for 17.99. I've never had a problem EVER with these, and you can probably find 'em cheaper now too. No exceptions in my book. Better off buying what's reliable.

first post haaa

Working is the key, not price. No exceptions.
