I have purchased a total of 5 of them. 3 of them have major issues. They seem to load ok...but then when I try to use them they will not load the round into the gun. It is like the tips or font of the round is pointed down somehow and will not slide out. They are even very difficult to unload by hand. In addition, the clips 'feel' like the spring is gummed up :dunno: Please let me know your thoughts...I am considering returning them and getting Butler Creek Steel Lips. I should point our that I have been shooting my 10/22's for almost 20 years...and using Butler Creek 25 round clips. So I do not think this is User Error.
