My fave is a Beretta M71.... Because that's what I've got right now. It's from before the import point system, so no fake suppressor barrel extension. It's been stored in a soft case with an Astra Cub 25auto for years, so there's a few dings on it. And only one magazine...

Arrived yesterday. It won't seat with the slide closed. The feed lips need to be adjusted. If I load more than 5, the rounds nosedive into the mag.
I assume these are old production mags that been sitting for awhile? were they packaged or just loose? May need to disassemble and give a good cleaning if you didnt already.

New production. Chunky plastic baseplate with sharp edges. Allen screw holding the follower, not a slotted screw. The follower can pivot in the mag body, and has enough side to side play that the slide stop can fall off the follower. There is also a tiny bit of slop up/down.

It came loose in a padded envelope. The company that makes it has a catalog of mags for older pistols. I don't remember their name right now, but I can search for it after I get home from church.

i went to local steel challenge yesterday to watch and see if i like it, i do like it, about 20 shooters there, someone mentioned the taurus tx22, there was a excellent shooter there, maybe a class shooter, he amazed everyone there shooting the new taurus tx 22, he was saying he has a few rugers and i asked him if he likes the taurus, he did say he is getting used to the taurus and it may be the gun he is going to shoot out of all his 22rimfire pistols, he had a modified red dot on it, he was so fast and accurate, amazed me, i might try one.

Okay, the company is Triple K, out of San Diego, CA.

I sent them an email about the feed lips. We'll see how that goes before I start bending things.

The same as other suggestions here-- CCI & Aguila. When I run a can on mine they prefer the CCI.
