    I do t know much of anything about a 10-22. My dad just called and said he got one with no mag. Are any aftermarket mags any good or should he just stick to Ruger?

    ^This. Have tried a few others and come to the conclusion that the factory 10-round rotaries can't be topped...

    Factory 10 definitely.

    The Ruger 25s and 50s are okay but nothing great.

    I have a few other 25 rounders that work too. Butler Creek is one.

    He needs a mag loader too. Best thing ever.

    I'd stick with Ruger. I tried one expensive aftermarket mag and it was a jamfest. I picked up a couple of factory 25 rounders on sale (about $30 for 2, if I recall) and they are flawless. Factory is the way to go, IMHO.

    I'm a big fan of the Ruger 15 round mags.

    https://www.cdnnsports.com/rugerr-10-22r-bx15-22lr-15rd-synthetic-mag.html#.W8gQ1i-ZOw4

    10 rounds are great but fitting flush with the stock can make them a touch tricky to extract.
    25 round mags stick out too far and get in my way.

    Factory 15 round mags.
    Easy to grab and insert/extract. Reliable as a good axe.
    Like in Goldilocks....not too big...not too small...just right...ahhhhhhh!

    You want cheap?
    The factory mags are cheap.
    Four 15 round mags for $100 will serve you for a lifetime.

    My Ruger Precision Rimfire came with a 15 round mag, and it's "ok" (much better than 25 rounders, as stated), but still don't like them as much as the 10's.

    Even with the 15's, you still have to come up off the gun in some positions to get the mag out (for me, at least). With the 10's and an upgraded mag release, they drop free easily (right into the hand with a little practice), and a new mag can be loaded without running into potential clearance issues...
