High Tower Armory 10/22 magazine

    High Tower Armory has come out with a new set of magazines for the Ruger 10/22 rifle. They come in a number of colors: Black, Desert Tan, Flat Dark Earth, and OD Green. Magazines come in a 30 round capacity, and all have removable windows to visually see the round count. These have arrows designating every five rounds, starting at 10, with a red marker on the follower that shows where the round count is at. The feed lips are Nitrided stainless steel. The magazines can be disassembled without tools as well. A neat feature of the magazine windows is that once they are removable, they can function as a follower hold down because the follower will extrude through the former slot where the windows used to be. This can be useful when reloading the magazines over a long course of fire because you can depress the follower without having to individually press each cartridge in. The magazines are listed at $29.99 a piece.

    There are obviously a huge variety of 10/22 magazines out there on the market for the Ruger platform, some good, some mediocre, and others not the best of course. But High Tower Armory really focuses on 10/22 accessories and parts so it looks like the company has a handle on what works and what doesn’t with the rifle platform.
