Ruger Introduces 25-Round Magazine for Ruger 10/22
April 29, 2011
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces that owners of America's most popular autoloading rimfire rifle, the Ruger® 10/22®, can enjoy the extended fun offered by the new 25-round BX-25™ magazine. The new, genuine Ruger BX-25 magazine features the same correct angle feed lips that deliver the famous reliability of factory BX-1™ 10-round rotary magazines.
The BX-25 magazine will work in all vintages of Ruger 10/22 and SR-22® rifles, as well as all Ruger Charger™ pistols. The BX-25 magazines have stainless steel feed lips and use a stainless steel "constant force" spring. The anti-tilt follower is injection molded from Celcan - a high lubricity polyacetal. The magazine body halves are injection molded from durable glass-filled nylon.
"These are genuine Ruger factory magazines. We designed them. We didn't license and rebrand someone else's magazines," said Ruger CEO Michael Fifer. "We tested the BX-25 magazines extensively and they work as well as the original Ruger BX-1 rotary magazine, the gold standard for rimfire autoloading reliability," he continued.
The Ruger 10/22 is available in many configurations, including the special edition officially licensed Ruger Boy Scout™ 10/22 Rifle. Millions of shooters worldwide have learned the basics of firearms safety and marksmanship using a Ruger 10/22. It is a favorite of small bore hunters, competitive shooters and target shooters everywhere. Over six million Ruger 10/22's have been produced since it was introduced in 1964.
