Here's a video I made of me testing out the Ruger BX-25 magazines.

I fail at embedding.

Awesome,  I love that 1 of the 2 failures was CCI Mini Mag's!   That's awesome since everyone around here believes CCI's Mini Mag's to be the only ammo that runs "Flawlessly" in every .22lr chambered firearm!

Nice video, looks like the magazine functioned really good.

I can't wait to pick one of these up.

Only one failure on CCI mini mags and that was a failure to eject. Not ammo related problem.

Has anyone tested them with a Norrell pack?

I have four Butler Creek steel lips. Two are a couple I bought right after the AWB sunset, they fit better than the BX25 and have run near flawless. The other two steel lips I bought a couple months ago, the fit a little loose and the jam about 1 out of 50 rounds.

Still ironic,  becides every time somone posts ANY type of ammo problems, even FTE's the next reply is no doubt someone telling them to switch to CCI Mini Mag's that run "Flawless" in every gun.


I will say I NEVER noticed that the factory 10 round mag's had the feed lips at an angle, thus I also never noticed that none of the aftermarket mag's were angled.   Not sure what difference that makes, or if it was only there because the 10 round mag's were on a rotary wheel and ruger just kept the angled feel lips as a 'trade mark' sort to speak with the BX-25.


Anyway, just purchased a BX-25 this weekend, will try it out in the coming weeks and see what she does.   I'm hoping for the best, but no expecting much improvement in over all operation, as I believe the main feed/eject problems are the results of horrable QC in the manufacture of the 10/22's that I own and for that matter all recent 10/22's manufactured in the last 5-10 years, with the exception of the custom built and match grade models.

Yeah not my kind of music but the video was great! The mags ran excellent and I can't wait to pick up a few once they are in stock at $25 or less. Thanks OP!

Nice test, but why the annoying music.

The video was kinda boring by itself, watching someone shoot for 3 minutes gets dull. I added some background music to break up the monotony, but I guess System of a Down isn't everyone's thing.
