How many of you guys own a Ruger 10/22 takedown? Are you having feeding/ejecting problems using the new Ruger rotary BX magazines? How did you resolve it?

I have a Ruger 10/22, but not the takedown model.  I use the BX with out issue.

What brand of ammo are you using?

Leo, I have tried a variety of brand and velocities all with the same results. I have found that the more traditional magazine functions with no problems.

I have read that folks have had problems with the BX rotary magazines, however, I haven't read about too many fixes.

I have 2 BX mags and the only issue I've had is making sure they are locked into place. It's like they do, but they didn't. I just make it a point to check first.

I have noticed that when I when I use the BX magazine there is a lot of movement, while the others have no virtually no play or movement.
