I am looking for a new magazine or two for my 10/22. I've looked around online, but I thought I would ask to see if anyone knows of a place that's better than Brownells, Cheaper than Dirt, etc.

I’m certain you’ll probably get other suggestions here. I’ve always just bought factory mags for my 10/22s. My two cents.

I now only use the factory 10rd. Clear magazines....with a Trimag adapter. Each magazine can hold a different round... I like stingers in one mag and mini mags in the other two for most day shooting...or vice verse or whatever I want.
Plus 30 rounds ready to go is a good standard.

Tried all the other mags even Ruger 25 rd. and found the Ruger 10 rd. rotaries to function and fit reliably. Kind of fun to clean too.

Also recommend the Ruger 10-round dust covers. Nice bumper on the two outward magazines when in use and kind of makes a mini bi-pod that hasn’t caused jams for my Takedown 22.

All of those sources mentioned (sapoutfitters, Grabagun, Gunmag Warehouse, etc.) sell genuine Ruger BX1 magazines so the choice is only based on price and shipping costs.

BTW, does anyone else make Ruger 10-round 10/22 magazines beside Ruger? I know there are several high capacity mag makers but I don't know of any other 10-round makers.

I have one of the old tear drop/belt fed 50 round mags. It has always worked flawlessly for me, until I broke the winder handle for it.

Never had anything but factory mags and will not buy any other 10-22 mags but factory. And I have never had a failure. Buy what it came with and keep them clean and they will last forever without an issue. Just my humble opinion.

It is different for AR mags, etc. I get MagPul for them.

Brownells has free shipping on orders over $49 and frequent 10% off deals. Combined with buying in quantities of three for further discount make them one of the better deals. Most of the online vendors charge sales tax now for out of state sales...times are a changing.

I wait for online sales and buy only the Ruger brand. So far, always less than $30 for the 25 round. Have several of these, and a couple of 15 round, and a half dozen 10 round with the aforementioned three mag adapters. All have the rubber covers - important to keep the dust and crud out of them in storage, or loaded.

If you're big into volume fire, I am quite happy with my GSG 110 round drum mag! It's more of a "load it on Monday, shoot it the rest of the month" thing! Look around and you can find them for $40 - 50. They don't like cheap greasy bullets is the only down side, otherwise it's a drum full of fun. Beyond that, I like the clear Ruger mags, they always work.
Cheers,

10/22 Magazines

I have the 10/22 magazine delivered with the rifle; a 15 round Ruger and the HC Mags kit. Got the 10/22 loader at Caldwells. (Forum won't let me post links.)

All work well. My original goal was not to have to stuff individual rounds into a magazine, wears out my fingers. I only shoot on the range, typically for an hour or two. I have the HC mag and a auto loader for 10/22 mag that works well with the 15 round.

I pre-load all the mags at home, usually with different ammo. Saves time at the range and is a lot more fun than stopping to re-load. I will shoot 250 rounds or so at local indoor range. Once it cools off I will go to outdoor range and usually stay a lot longer.

Really like the auto loaders. I take them to the range and it's quick and easy if I need to reload.
