I was really tempted by your online description and a video I watched on using and taking your HTA RM-25 Ruger 10/22 magazines apart for your follower assistance option and cleaning. Oh crap.
So, I had to order 4 of them for testing. OMG! I tested them out yesterday afternoon. So where were these HYA RM-25's mags when I was buying up Ramline and Butler Creek mags back in the 1980's and 1990's when my brother Gerry and I were hoarding every 10/22 conversion stock ever made before we wore our fingers to the bone loading several thousands of 22 caliber rounds into every Ruger 10/22 banana 'clip' or rotary magazine ever made?!
Your HTA RM-25 bananas are crazy good magazines! They work! It is a natural human element for consumers to always compare everything to something else, and in this case, I compared your HTA 25 round magazine to Ruger's BX-25. That was the best mag I could come up for comparison purposes. Up until yesterday, I knew for sure nobody could ever surpass Ruger's BX-25 magazine. Sure, Ramline's old 50 rounders were good and unsurpassed back in the day, but they wore out because they used plastic feed ramps.
Anyway, wow, I was wrong about Ruger's BX-25 magazine. Your HTA magazine is what Ruger's BX-25 should have been! And that says it all. I see no difference between the reliability between the two magazines. Very similar workings inside. They both work flawlessly in several different Ruger 10/22 carbines and also in an 80 percent I threw together last Winter for shooting 'close to the ground' varmints.
The differences? Obviously your mags can be taken apart easily in the field and readily cleaned with very little effort. Your removable windows and storage compartments right inside the magazine for the actual magazine options is out of this world! Who the hell are you, anyway? Who does design work that well? Man, these RM-25's are really well thought out magazines. Outstanding! I think the Champion-made line of Ruger 10/22 magazines of today are similar to your follower button design, but they don't work and they are of a much lesser concept all the way around. Total junk.
Now, my current conundrum is how do I ignore the dozen or so Ruger BX-25 magazines I already have... and start replacing them with your RM-25 magazines! Argh!
In closing, I just want to thank you again for your designs and products. I just hope I live long enough to see what you come up with in the future! This is fun!
