To those of you who have experience with the HTA kit, which ones for sure DO and which ones for sure DON'T work with the HTA Bullpup kit?

I wanted to pick something up that isn't hard to get in and out of like the stock 10 rounder is.

I believe it's pretty common knowledge the BX-25 mags work and they are by far the most reliable magazines available higher than 10 rounds.  You can find them online from time to time for around $25.  It's probably your best bet.

Hey Inde and Eagle!

Eagle is spot on Inde! BX25's are available, affordable, and they work like a champ! We also have our magazine coupler by the way- it links 2 ten round mags together so you can easily take them in and out of the stock.

I know for a fact Eagle brand 30 rounders work, so do Butler Creek mags if you cut the nub off the sides. Shooters ridge and champion both work. Ramline fits (I won't go so far as to say "they work"). Pretty much any magazine that doesn't get any wider than the magwell at any point along the sides of it. Please let me know if that doesn't make sense or if you have any further questions! Thanks so much guys!

Good to know!
I might end up going with your 10 round couplers as here in CA they limit the rounds to 10.
There are many sites that sell the 25 round mags dissembled and as "rebuild kits" but I haven't found any 25 round magazines that dissemble without breaking them.

If anyone has a leed to Ruger 10/22 compatible higher capacity mags which dissemble as rebuild kits, let me know.

The bx-25 can definitely be taken apart.  Don't know if anyone offers the service for it though.

Ok so a recap of known (hi-cap) magazines which fit the HTA Bullpup 10/22 Stock:

-Ruger BX-25
-Eagle
-Butler Creek (must remove small nubs on the sides)
-Shooters Ridge
-Champion
-Ramline (known to be junk)

FYI, I found the cheapest Ruger BX-25 Mags here for only $20.73

Another thing I noticed when searching for mags, the Eagle 10 round mags have a built in lever to act as an Extended Magazine Release making it easier to release the magazine.

Will this work with the HTA stock? if so, would that let me off the hook with getting the extended mag release from HTA?

The TI composite mags are excellent but expensive. They can be adjusted to fit an individual rifle. Replacement parts like followers and springs are available if needed. The parts look the same as what Ruger uses but I dont know if they are interchangeable.

Thumbs up for the TI's also. These mags are tough and will last a lifetime.

I can tell you guys that the Pro Mag ones DO NOT work with the 90/22.

Hey Thrashard!

Thanks for posting! Just to clarify, you mean the Promag 50 round drums right? Because I believe the 25 round Promag/Archangel and the 32 round Promag smoked magazines do fit unless I'm mistaken. Thanks again for the post and your business Thrash!

You are correct.

The ones I refer to are the promag charger series which do not work. The charger series has a nub on the upper half of the magazine that won't clear the mag well.

Indie....

While in Yuma last fall for the dove opener, I was picking up my license & dove stamp at Sprague's Sporting Goods and a BX-25 fell in my basket. IIRC it was $29.00

Most likely, I'm sure I'll spot another one in the basket this year  Shocked

Thanks..anyone have a pic with the Eagle 30 round magazine installed?

Also a link to the Eagle mag?

Any preference of the BX-25 vs the Eagle?

I spoke with Andy last week and he advised me the left hand deflector should be ready in a few weeks.

Hey gang!

Thanks for the interest ArmyChief for the question and for the help Confessor!

As confessor stated, the BX-25 x 2 is too wide. We of course recommend waiting for our RM-25 which should have a doubler option available soon  Wink haha sorry for the delay on those. Eagle's do work and have worked well for us for that matter, however we notice the lips are susceptible to breaking/wearing more than a steel lipped mag. Here is a pic with one of the Eagle's in our kit. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks so much!

Hey ArmyChief!

Here's a link to our RM-25 page. It's a 25 round magazine that we feel is probably the single most adaptive magazine available for the 10/22. It features a round count window, ability to finger assist the follower, a waffled body for grip, is made from a glass filled polymer like our other products, and utilizes steel feed lips.Moreover, it works in our 90/22 haha. Be sure and watch the video at the bottom of the page. Let me know if you have any questions regarding the mag. I'd be happy to answer! Thanks so much!
