    I assume these are the all plastic ones, how do they compare to the steel lips in terms of reliability?

    A friend who has both advised me to buy the steel lipped style because the plastic lipped version don't hold up, so I've only purchased the steel lipped kind. They've worked fine for me. I think the factory 25 round magazines are a little better if for no other reason than they can be disassembled for cleaning. The butler creek loader works on all of these magazines.

    I like the Ruger mags better than the Butler Creek steel lips too. They usually cost the same too.

    just my two cents but I have used 9 different hot lips mags some I bought new and some I bought off craigslist and in both of my 10-22's I have never had a failure in probably over 10000 rounds in the last two years. I have heard from multiple sources not to buy the hot lips mags and that the new ruger mags are aweome, but I have had no issues with mine and will probably pick up some more this week. Like another member said its not like I am going to pick this as my go to war gun.

    bought the plastic lipped ones 5 years ago from GI Joes, never had an issue, used for thousands of rounds, half the time I forget and leave them loaded....

    Everyone has different experiences with them, ranging from good to bad...

    I picked up some of the Butler Creeks and a Ruger BX25, the bx25 feels a lot more durable. Time will tell.
