I'm sure there are a million posts about this but in your opinion what are the best high capacity magazines for 10/22?

Tactical Innovation's 25-round steel-lip composite ones.

Pricey, but once you get them adjusted to your particular magwell (Did I mention they're adjustable?), you shouldn't have feeding issues of any kind.

I haven't had a single mag-related issue with my 10/22 in the over 3k rounds I've put through the 4 I have.

You can even take them apart to clean them, although I haven't yet.

If you wanted to get some on the cheap, you could get the regular, non-steel lipped composite ones. I'm pretty sure the lips on those are made out of the same composite as the rest of the mag, so they should hold up well. And, they're still adjustable, and you can still take them apart to clean them.

~Edit~ In fact, the only problem I have with them (besides them being a little on the spendy side), is that it's a pain getting them loaded up faster than I can shoot them dry. :D

My poor Butler Creek mag loader is getting worn out from how much I'm using it.

The poly ones are just as good I've got four of them work great after you get them adjusted.

anyone shoot the MWG tear drop 50 rounder? Like the "straight laced" look of it over the bananas. They are pricey too, but if they work well, I'll pay.

well I think I'm gonna go for the TI steel lip poly ones thanks for all the advice.
I think you should try the poly ones first with the composite feeds to see if you like them and if you do and the feeds wear out (which I doubt) you can always replace them with the metal ones MHO.

Butler creek steel mags seem to work better than most other after market mags. I have never heard a complaint around here about them. Ti as you read my last post are hit and mise. They also will test your patients when adjusting them. Promag, well just stay away from them. Black dog drums appear to work but with plastec feedlips they are destined to break. Just my opinion.

ya still get great reviews about the TI mags. Sounds like they just got a bad batch of followers and tried to make them work(maybe why they are on sale :p ). They do work fine with a little initial TLC. But you can still get the mag + a new style follower for around $20 bucks. I Haven't had a single failure after my first day 2000+ rounds.

I ordered some new followers from TI got them last week and they were red and not blue but they also didn't have any scuffs of the back side of the followers. I buffed them anyways and changed them out lubed them lightly have to get out in the desert and give them a run.

Paul

P.S also bought a new BC loader
