Ruger BX-25 Mags — All the Goods
Over the past half a century, the iconic Ruger 10/22 has become America’s most popular rimfire rifle. Chances are you already own one! With the low recoil, low noise, and low-cost ammunition, it’s a fun gun to shoot.
Now, your 10/22 came with a reliable rotary 10-round factory magazine that fits flush with the stock. But did you know that back in 2011-2012, Ruger expanded your options by releasing the BX-25? It’s a curved 25-round mag made with a high-impact polymer outer shell, stainless steel feed lips, high visibility red follower, and stainless ordainment lugs.
Designed in-house by Sturm Ruger & Co., these mags increase your 10/22 capacity by 25 or even 50 rounds. And since they’re direct from the manufacturer, they’ve been tested and proven to feed as reliably as the standard 10-round factory magazine. What’s not to like about that?!
Obviously, these mags are longer and they rock into your gun similar to an AK magazine. They’re compatible with the original 10/22, SR-22, 22 Charger, 22 LR American Rimfire, and 77/22 rifle. Be sure to take a look at all of these options to find the one that’s best for you.
Are you ready to up your 10/22 game?
Check out these mags! We’ve got a few different packages for you to choose from, and we’ve even got dust covers to protect your BX-25s so you can keep ’em clean and extend their life.
Single or Double?
Is there a .22 rifle with a more reliable magazine than the Ruger 10/22? Their rotary magazines are the standard. Listen to Daniel in the video to learn more about it.
Clear Sided BX-25
Now, here’s an interesting option. These Clear-Sided magazines have the same high-quality construction and reliability, with a clear side so you can do quick load checks.
This mag is clearly a good choice, as Daniel describes in the video below.
But wait, it gets even better!
Ruger decided to double the badassery by coupling two BX-25’s together, jungle style, making the Ruger BX-25×2 Factory Magazine. So now, with one of those, you get twice the capacity for target practice or plinking and you get to shave time from your reloads.
Basically, this “jungle style” configuration is accomplished by fixing two 25-round magazines side by side in opposing directions. When the first magazine is emptied, just pull it out, rotate, and insert the other one.
BAM! You’re good to go for another 25 rounds!
That’s going to be quicker than reaching for your spare mag in your pocket or pouch, and since the two mags are side by side, they don’t extend much farther down than a single BX-25. Obviously, this option is thicker than a single BX-25 and is going to be heavier with the weight of the rounds. That’s likely a small trade-off, considering the advantages.
Watch the video to learn more about the construction and function of the BX-25×2.
Keep ’em clean
Taking care of your gear is always a good idea. You pay good money for it, and you want it to last as long as possible. Use these Dust Covers to keep all kinds of crud like dust, dirt, and debris from mucking up the inside of your BX-25’s. They also add additional protection should you accidentally drop your mags.
Ruger BX-25 Etended Magazines — Get some!
Whether you need ’em for training, plinking, or shooting small game, you’ll be tickled with the added capacity that these magazines offer. And since they’re straight from Ruger, you can count on their quality and reliability.
