Brimstone 10/22 Pull Magazine Release

15 reviews Write a Review

After being out of production for a number of years, the old Rimfire Tech pull magazine release is being manufactured again by yours truly! 

(Complete directions with pictures on how to install this can be found here.  We encourage you to read through that BEFORE ordering so that you know exactly what you're getting into)

This is without question the lightest and smoothest magazine release we have ever used for the Ruger 10/22. You simply reach forward with your index finger, pull back just like pulling a trigger, and the magazine drops free. You don't have to dig your finger into the underside of the gun, and you're not pushing the release into the path of the magazine. But the real beauty of this piece is how incredibly light and smooth it is. I don't want to get to carried away with the description here, but seriously, you almost need to experience it to understand. They are machined from billet aluminum, then Cerakoted to match your trigger and other parts, which allows some truly custom colors and color combinations.

This will also come with one of our very awesome auto bolt releases. Because of the geometry and range of motion of this magazine release, it will not work with factory bolt releases, and we cannot guaranty that it will work with any other aftermarket ones. However, down the road, if you want to switch back to the factory magazine release, our auto bolt release will work great with those. 

You will need to tap one hole in your trigger group, but there's no drilling required and you will still be able to switch back to your factory magazine release down the road. 

(Science Stuff: The hole is on the small side for the 8-32 tap, but since the material is polymer or aluminum, you can run the tap through without issue and the minor diameter of the threads will be really close to the original diameter of the original hole. Therefore, no need to drill and you can reuse your factory pivot pin down the road if you want to switch back to the factory release down the road.)

This release actually pivots around the front pin that holds the trigger group into the receiver. As such, this kit will come with a slave pin; you'll assemble your trigger group, install the new magazine release with the slave pin, then use the factory receiver/trigger group pin to push out the slave pin. With a little practice you can assemble them without the slave pin (that's what we do here in the shop), but better directions will be up here as soon. 

Thanks for looking! We are incredibly excited about bringing this product to market, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

    Installation of mag release and bolt stop

    Posted by Jerome Smith on Oct 14th 2020

    Functional results as promised. Install video helpful with one improvement recommendation: Depth adjustment of set screw seems critical to proper functioning of bolt stop.. This is hinted at but not emphasized in the ideo.. At first the bolt stop did not function properly after a careful istallation following the video. After tweaking the set screw depth it did. Just a note to the purchaser in the video that some fine-tuning of the set screw depth would be necessary would have been helpful. Products work great. I'll look to you guys first for additional mods to my 10/22 takedown.

    I'll have to contact Brimstone to see if I can swap my original Bolt Stop Tab.I really can't see the sense in their serrated edged knife-like tab that came with the Mag Release .

    Brimstone magazine release lever

    A little hard to insert magazine, but it comes out so easily that I can't believe it! It has zero drag and falls free so fast that it defies the laws of physics

    Good for the average shooter

    This is a HUGE improvement over the stock mag release, however, if you're doing a competition stance where your foregrip is closer to the trigger guard, or over the magazine, this may not be for you. Also, be careful when sandbagging your rifle, if you get too close to the mag, you're gonna drop it.

    The magazine release is much, much easier and smoother than stock. I also have a KIDD supergrade 10/22 also, but I am going to buy a second one and put it on my KIDD.

    KIDD needs to take lessons from Brimstone!!

    Pull magazine release

    I've tried quite a few magazine releases and this one is by far the best one. It's just a natural feeling and more comfortable to pull the magazine lever. It was a bonus that it comes in all those colors and that the folks at Brimstone installed it.
