It was in 1949 that Sturm, Ruger & Company, Incorporated, more commonly known as Ruger, was founded by William B. Ruger and Alexander McCormick Sturm. Since then, the Connecticut-based arms manufacturer has been recognized as a leader in centerfire and rimfire handguns and rifles and renowned for their reputation regarding both reliability and durability – a reputation earned by producing firearms like the Ruger 10/22.
Generally speaking, it is beneficial to seek out factory magazines for your firearms. Factory magazines are manufactured by the same company, to the exact same specifications and tolerances as the originals. They are also made from the same materials, which ensures both fit and function in your firearm.
As noted, the Ruger BX-1 magazine is a Ruger factory-produced magazine for the 10/22. This rotary magazine is designed to hold 10 rounds of .22 LR ammunition and fits flush with the underside of the stock. The magazine has been manufactured with multiple features that give it a performance that is miles ahead of the aftermarket competition.
The obvious advantage that the BX-1 holds over aftermarket magazines is the employment of stainless steel feed lips as opposed to plastic feed lips. Steel feed lips are not nearly as susceptible to wear as their plastic counterparts. Additionally, the feed lips are designed to present cartridges at a 30 degree angle for reliable feeds every time. And because this is a rotary magazine, it contains a stainless steel torsion spring that exerts a consistent force that results in feeds that are consistently reliable.
It is no secret that you love shooting the Ruger 10/22 – the whole of America loves it. Enhance your enjoyment by cutting down on load times by purchasing a few spare magazines. Consider the Ruger BX-1 magazine for:
