    A friend of mine picked up some hotlips 25 round magazines for her 10/22, and it seems like the spring isn't strong enough. Sometimes it doesn't feed another round into the chamber because it isn't pushed up far enough, or misfeeds it somehow.

    She's getting plenty of practice clearing jams, but she doesn't want to have any problems if she's doing a course of fire at a local range.

    Any sugguestions on what magazines to try next?

    The Butler Creek Steel Lips are better, but if you want extended mags, go for the gusto and get the Ti25 mags from Tactical Innovations. They're expensive, but, if you like that kind of thing, worth it.

    I stick with the standard Ruger BX1 rotary mags...most reliable, lowest profile.

    The 50 rnd. drums from pro mag work well....although they are a PITA to load.
    Stick to mage with metal feed lips, they feed more reliably, The BC mags are generally reliable...after they've been broken in.

    Anyone have experience with those magazine connectors, sort of like a mag clamp that lets you put two or four BX1 magazines together? IIRC they are made be E&L.
