The 10/22 magazines aren’t made of stamped metal, which can become distorted at the top feed area. I’ve had to adjust several, primarily from being dropped free on the concrete at the range. I can’t think of any OEM magazines that I’ve purchased new that needed tweaking, but I have had problems with cheaper “knock-offs.” Most high quality OEM mags are of sufficient metal gauge to provide long term reliability.

The 10/22 rotary magazines have machined aluminum feed “lips”. These can’t be tweeted like the stamped and welded steel magazines, which are typically found on my semi-auto pistol and some semi-auto rifle magazines.

I’ve learned a new term...I’ve always just called it tweeking.

BTW, Tandemkross makes a 10/22 takedown tool and winding gadget which makes disassembly and assembly painless. This allows deep cleaning the mags every couple of years easy...
