Is or was there a Butler Creek 50 round magazine for the Ruger 10/22?

Talking about a mag, not the 50 round capacity rapid loader.

There's a guy on another forum that has what he says is a Butler Creek 50 round mag for sale. Trying to find info on it but all I can find is the 25 round mag and the 50 round capacity rapid loader.

Thanks,
bbaumer

    Been searching the net all evening and all I can find are the 25 round Steel Lips and Hot Lips.

    No 50 round Butler Creek mags, just the loader. Couple of other brand 50 rounders but no Butler Creek's.

    I "had" a 50 round Ram-line 10/22 magazine. What a POS. Stay Away. If butler creek makes one, I would trust that. I have a 50 round drum for the 10/22 also, and thats a POS too. Looks sweet though.

    Is the 50 round drum you have made by pro-mag? I was thinking about trying that one...

    Yes...its a pro-mag. Maybe it will work for you, but mine doesnt work for me. Thinking about "tweaking" it though, I have nothing to lose as its just a novelty item.

    I looked around too and cant seem to find a 50 round butler creek mag, maybe its two 25's clipped together.


    The promag drum just plain looks cool though. I slapped it back together for a pic. Got it apart for the coolest 10/22 dress up ever.

    As far as standard type mags Ram-Line made 30rd and 50rd mags. Butler Creek made 25rd Steel and plastic (hot lips) mags. Pro Mag makes a 50rd drum and MGW makes a 50rd "tear drop" mag.

    If you are looking for the best mag money can buy: http://www.tacticalinc.com/ti25-machined-aluminum-steel-lipbrmagazine-ruger-1022-p-212.html

    OR

    http://www.tacticalinc.com/ti25-advanced-composite-steel-magazine-ruger-1022-p-532.html

    I have one of the composite ones right now. I will never buy another type of 10/22 mag again. I have 12 more of these on my fall to buy list.

    I've come to the same conclusion, no to the Butler Creek 50 round mag BUT the guys says so. Here's his reply to my PM:

    pay pal or money order is good

    [email protected] is my pay pal!


    I figure for $25 shipped to my door the worst I could do is the Eagle mag and not be out that much.

    Anyone else? This item is used and was described as this in the original ad:

    Maybe Butler Creek used to have a 50 rounder from years ago???

    I have a Ramline 50 rd pear shaped drum mag that worked very well. It was bought when they came out.
    While it wasn't used a great deal I hadn't any malfunctions using it.
    On the other hand, two of their Ruger MK1 plastic mags having constant tension coil springs didn't work well even after a lot of fiddling and filing.
