BX 25 any good ?

Well howdy partners I'm thinking of getting one of those Bx 25 magazines and was wondering if they go ok in the 10/22 ? Of course the 10 round ones go great but I run out of ammo quick when I'm trying to shoot the bull out of a target
They are the Ruger factory ones aren't they ?
Cheers guys

Joe is spot on. I have both the butler creek steel lipped and the ruger BX25 and the ruger mags are very good quality mags. I have yet to have a problem with my ruger mags.

2-300 rounds through mine so far with no problems, but if the Butler Creeks were significantly cheaper in your area I would consider one of theirs.

What is shipping to New Zealand form the states? It sounds like it would be cheaper to have someone buy them for you and ship them down there.

Hi Pacific, shipping is pretty expensive and it's bloody hard work getting the high capacity mags into NZ.

Howsit Just asking, the 10 shot mags are $30 US each here. Actually I have 3 10 round mags so might look at getting one of those trimag things. I would still like a 25, it should sit well in the 10/22 take down bag and keep my 10 rounders for my other 10/22

Ya not wrong, you guys don't know how lucky you got it
Nuts and double nuts. I farted around too much and now the bx 25 are sold. I found someone selling Butler and Creek ones, are they any good ? and would it fit my 10/22, here is the spiel
"Butler Creek 25 Round Magazine for Ruger 77/22" It's $60 US so quite a bit cheaper than the BX 25

They are illegal here in Ca. They must be afraid of people doing drive-bys with 22s. But they do let us buy 10 round mags that look like 25 round mags. Whats the point?

The butler creek 25rd. mags are very good magazines. If you can get one with steel lips they are better. I have them and they work very well.

My guess is as it doesn't say they are probably not the steel lipped ones. Would the plastic lipped ones still be ok ? apparently they are getting more BX25s in in a couple of weeks but I could buy 2 butler creek ones for the price of 1 bx25.

Here in NZ semi auto centerfire rifles are not allowed the have bigger than 7 round mags, and aren't allowed to even look like they can hold more.

Hey Pacific,
In a rational world that would be easy and simple. In this world that's a really bad idea and could get you in trouble. Federal-pound-me-in-the-you-know-what trouble. It would likely violate ITAR rules on international arms shipments. The Federal storm troopers would bust your door down, kill your dog, take all your guns and computers, and lock you up for ten years minimum. Then they'd turn you over to Australia for them to repeat the process.

haha, actually we don't have too much trouble bringing stuff in apart from the horrendous cost. Most of the problems are getting the export permit out of the US.
With regard to the butler creek one, would this one fit my 10/22 ?

Hi Kiwihunter;

Sorry to read about the cost of mags there! If you can get them, BX-25 are my new 'standard' of high cap mag, replacing the BC25 steel lips. No functional difference, but the plastic on the BC25 seems a bit more prone to cracking if dropped, than does the plastic on the BX-25.

On the compatibility issue of 10/22 and 77/22 mag, I found this link: GunBroker.com Message Forums - Interchanging Ruger 10-22 and 77-22 Mags

However, I can not answer from experience. Anyone here confirm or deny the statements about 10/22 and 77/22 mag compatibility and bottom plate differences?

All the best,
Grumpy

Thanks very much for the info Grumpy
Yeah it's just the nature of living here really we have to put up with knee jerk reactions by the government to a couple of shootings we had a few years ago and so they went a bit spastic. Not allowed pistol grips without a special licence, as if having a pistol grip means more people will get shot

Apparently the shop will be getting a few more BX25s in soon so I will probably wait and get 1 of them.
Take care mate

Hi Kiwihunter;

>>>...Not allowed pistol grips without a special licence, as if having a pistol grip means more people will get shot...<<<

Not sure why the uproar over pistol grips either. The usual line I hear stateside is that it "allows one to fire accurately from the hip", which is of course utter and complete nonsense. My personal guess is that the real agenda is to outlaw "fun guns" so that new people won't be recruited to the sport. That way as stodgy old grumps like myself expire there won't be a new generation of shooters.

>>>...Apparently the shop will be getting a few more BX25s in soon so I will probably wait and get 1 of them...<<<

Good decision! One other advantage of the BX25 is that it supposedly can be dismantled for cleaning. I have not done so myself yet, but it may be necessary in the future. I just had some factory 10 rounders jam up on me a couple of days ago due to buildup of waxy crud on the inside. So far I haven't clogged up any of my BC mags, but I have several of them with deep cracks (not sure if impact or chemicals from cleaning are to blame). The BX25's on the other hand have been flawless in every sense of the word. I should probably pick up a couple more, come to think of it...

All the best,
Grumpy
PS Not sure what the pistol laws are in NZ, but if legally available you might want to check out the used Walther P1's that are all over the surplus market. The Germans have sold off their old stock, in some cases in unissued condition. I just replaced the double action sear in my 'beater' P1 and it is rapidly becoming one of my favorite 9mm plinkers.

I have one BX25 magazine and the few times I have used it operation was flawless.

Cheers Grumpy and XtraToy

Yeah Grumpy, as anyone who has been around rifles for a while can tell, accurate shooting from the hip is Hollywood crap. There has been a recent spate of hunters killed here and of course all were shot with standard stocked rifles, so having a "safe" stock didn't seem to help them. It's just the police trying to look like they were doing something so they tell the government to ban pistol grip stocks and high capacity mags and all will be well. Sure it will

My BX 25 is on it's way and I should get it Monday
Yeah I note in the blurb for it, they say it has 2 screws so it can be dismantled.
You must have put a few rounds through ya 10 shot ones to gum it up aye

Yes you can own pistols here but you wouldn't believe the crap you have to go through to get a pistol license.
Oh just found an add for the Walther. Cheap as chips for over here
