I am starting to see some places selling/listing Ramline 10/22 mags. They list 25 round single stack mags and both 30rd and 50rd doublestack mags. I think all have plastic lips. Anyone know if the new ones are any good?

I have a couple pre-ban (I know the term is old now) 30rd double stack ones and they seem to run fine.

Never had any problems with the ramlines, got some that have had 1000's of rds through them ad still never jam.

That's good news. I ordered a 50 round compact one yesterday. I'll see how it works.

Ramlines are okay but the Butler Creek hot lips are better and their steel lips are some of the best hicap 10/22 mags out there.

I have some old ramline 30 and 50 round mags. They have a tendency to split at the feed ramp, which wasn't a problem when ramline had a guarentee. You could just ship them back and they would replace them. I still have a couple 30s and a 50 that still work well but are getting worn. 'The nice thing about them is that the 50s are the size of the But Creek 25 rnd mags and the 30s are real compact.

I have a a couple of the BC mags but mine are steel lip ones and not the plastic lip ones.

Ramline and BC need to get together and come up with a double stack 50 round mag with steel lips.

They must have modified their mags since last time I tried them. I bought 2-30 round mags in 1992. They were very unreliable. I replaced them with BC and never looked back.

Who's got the best current price on steel lips?

I got my new 50 round compact ramline mag.....after about 37 rounds you need an arbor press to finish loading it......POS.

I recently got a new ramline 50 rounder. I didn't have any problem loading to capacity, but that was using a butler creek loader. However, the spring tension is very week, and the rounds advance very sluggishly - I wonder if it is going to have problems keeping up with the gun.

My first outing with the 50 rounder was like this:

1. First 5-12 rounds were failures do to lack of enough spring pressure. Not everyone, but this is within the round number wher it happened.

2. The middle 30-35 rounds went great.

3. Last 5-12 were FTF, etc......

Maybe it just needs to be broken in....Let's hope.

I just got a Ramline 30 rd. compact mag. It's rough as hell. I hope after shooting it a little, it will loosen up.

Just shot them again at noon.

50 rounder...a complete piece of crap.

I have 2 - 30 older 30rd compact ramline mags and they both worked perfect again.

I may have gotten a lemon of a 50 rounder.

The 50 round Ramlines have such a bad reputation that they are often referred to as "jam-lines"

Don't waste your money.

A better purchase would be the "hot-lip" butler creek 25 round magazines (currently being manufactured and sold).

The very best are the "steel-lip" butler creek 25 round magazines (different sites are taking orders, but they won't be shipped until the middle of november. the manufacturer still hasn't shipped them to distributors)

I have a couple of Jamlines, one 50rnd and one 30rnd. I bought them new back in '93. They have never worked once. I still take them to the range from time to time trying to kid myself into believing that maybe this will be the time that they work... They never do. he
