All of mine work great. I remember a Ruger rep saying to just push the cartridge straight down. When asked about strength he said if it breaks I will send a new one. I like how they disconnect and how the snap in. Plus flush a fit. Really there are so much better than others out there.

It works. Just really cheap.

You'd think they would do a 10/22 type rotary mag with steel fees lips. C'mon!

instead of buying an inexpensive plastic rifle and whining about it, check it out first and spend your money on something you like. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I actually don't mind them, just like I don't mind polymer pistols. They are light, well made for being mostly plastic, and won't rust. The price on them is absolutely ridiculous though.

Now that part I will agree on. They are expensive.

I have three of them for my RA in .223 Rem. Yes, they are flimsy feeling, yes they are overpriced and yes, they work flawlessly.

The American rifles are designed to be assembled quickly by low-skilled hands. The magazines are of course, a $3 injection part that works with reasonable efficiency...

Buy a spare.

cheaper than the plastic scout mags. If a feller can't afford an extra mag, mebbe he should take up knitting. Or chess......

I have three mags in .223 Rem for my RA and all three work perfectly. One came with it and I purchased the two extras using my 20% discount card. Yes they are expensive at full list but for a rifle like this how many do you really need?
